Huntsville Police investigating antisemitic graffiti near Wahlburgers in MidCity
Mural artist Logan Tanner releases statement.
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Officers with the Huntsville Police Department are conducting an investigation after antisemitic graffiti was reported near Wahlburgers in the MidCity District.
Racist wording and antisemitic images were spray painted on the mural of Little Richard.
Little Richard Mural Artist Logan Tanner released the following statement on the images:
“It’s disappointing but it’s an outward symptom of an inner sickness, and the more subtle forms of racism in our society are what are truly insidious. In hiring, in housing, in policing, and in the narratives we choose to elevate. The person who vandalized these murals could be a fully radicalized adult, they certainly exist in our communities, but it may also be an ignorant teenager, and right now there’s a movement to suppress narratives about the black experience in America in our schools, and when we do that we raise white boys with no empathy who do hateful things like this- and worse.”
The following images show the defacement of the mural:
According to a spokesperson for the police department, a report was filed.
