In New York City, local leaders gathered at the African Burial Ground Monument Monday to condemn racist graffiti found on a sign at the historic landmark last week that read ”KILL N*****S.” Last week, anti-Semitic graffiti was found at several sites in Brooklyn, New York, including a synagogue. City Councilmember Jumaane Williams warned yesterday of an “atmosphere that’s been created in this country, unfortunately that’s coming down to the city and this state.” This comes as ABC News identified at least 17 criminal cases where Trump’s name or his rhetoric was directly invoked in connection with acts of violence.
