FREDA GANDY/EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
This type of hatred will not be tolerated in our community.
It doesn't matter what our political views are.

THIS MORNING, EMPLOYEES OF THE MARTIN LUTHER KING
JUNIOR FAMILY OUTREACH CENTER FOUND THE N-WORD SPRAY
PAINTED ON THE BUILDING.

PHIL TYLER/NAACP PRESIDENT
It is not new.
It is not because a new president was elected.
This has been going on for years.
And the community, our country, needs to wake up.
NEWS SPREAD QUICKLY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT SURROUNDS
THE MLK CENTER.
Unfortunately i think it's a reaction to president
elect trump being elected :6W14 22
DOWN THE STREET.
SANDRA SAYS SHE WAS SHOCKED AND DISMAYED BY THE GRAFFITI,.
AND HOPES IT ISN'T RELATED TO THE ELECTION.
i think it's bad timing, but i hope people don't take
it as another reason to choose sides and be against
each other :8W15 22
SHE SAYS SHE BELIEVES SOME PEOPLE ARE RESPONDING WITH
HATE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE.
AND THIS ISN'T THE ONLY HATE CRIME IN OUR AREA.
JUST YESTERDAY, THE PULLMAN POLICE ANNOUNCED IT IS
INVESTIGATING AN INCIDENT WHERE A STUDENT'S CAR WAS
VANDALIZED WITH ANTI-GAY SLURS.
ON 60 MINUTES, PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP ADDRESSED THE
ISSUE AND TOLD PEOPLE TO STOP THE VIOLENCE.
SOT - Donald Trump / R President-Elect
I am so saddened to hear that.
And I say, "Stop it." If it-- if it helps.
I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras:
REGARDLESS OF THE MOTIVES BEHIND THE GRAFFITI AT THE
MLK CENTER, TODAY COMMUNITY LEADERS SAID SPOKANE NEEDS
TO STAND UP TO HATE.
:01 - :11 PHIL TYLER
This is not about simply joining hands together and
raising paintbrushes for one day, for one incident.
You have to open up your minds and your hearts, and
when you see this behavior, you have to speak to it.
