Racial Slurs Written On Jackie Robinson Statue

Every once in a while a story comes along that reminds you how vile some human beings can be. According to the New York Daily News, vandals used marker pens to scrawl racial slurs on the Jackie Robinson statue at the home stadium of the minor league Brooklyn Cyclones. The defacement was discovered this morning and workers immediately began removing the offensive wording. Appropriately, police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
