‘Trump 2016,’ swastika and N-word written on car in second incident at Temple University

Published

on

Vandals drew swastikas, the N-word and “Trump 2016” in the snow piled up on vehicles near Philadelphia’s Temple University on Wednesday night.

According to TheTab.com, Temple junior Daisy Calderon was walking home in the early hours of Thursday morning when she noticed the snow graffiti.

“(E)very car along Montgomery had snow drawings on them, but they were mostly just stupid stuff,” Calderon said, but then a particular vehicle caught her eye.

It said “Ni**er” across the trunk and “Trump 2016” on the back windshield. Calderon snapped a photo and a second photo of a swastika drawn on the same car.

She posted the images to social media with a note that said, “Already exhausted and frustrated from finals, I saw something that genuinely bothered me to the core. I saw this car on the way home from the tech last night. I’m disgusted that anyone, for whatever reason, would do something like this.”

Temple police are investigating the incident. A similar incident took place in February of 2016, when someone wrote swastikas and the N-word on another vehicle on campus.

Calderon’s photos are embedded below:

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
