Racist and anti-semitic signs found at Community Building

SPOKANE, Wash. - Signs with racist and anti-semitic messages were posted at the Community Building in Spokane, according to Phillip Tyler, President of the NAACP.

"This is a direct affront to the very work these organizations do," said Tyler. "This is meant to instill fear. This is domestic terrorism."

The Community Building holds NAACP meetings, the Center for Justice, Peace and Justice Action League, and other organizations.

Spokane Mayor David Condon remarked: "Spokane does not and will not tolerate the offensive acts of an individual or individuals. The hurtful language is in stark contrast to who we are and serves only to galvanize our resolve as a city and community to send a clear message that bias, intolerance, and hate has no place in Spokane. The Spokane Police Department is aware of the posters and remains firmly focused on protecting the safety of everyone in our city."
