New Yorkers get racist, homophobic hate mail with Make America Great Again swastika
A number of New York businesses have been sent racist, homophobic and antisemitic hate mail.
At least nine addresses in Harlem and Brooklyn all received the same letter, CBS New York reports.
The letter features a large swastika and the following text.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!
NEGROES AND FAGGOTS MUST BURN IN HELL
CHRISTIAN IDENTITY IS BACK
“Juden raus” was a slogan used in Nazi Germany, meaning “Jews out”.
“Make America Great Again” was a slogan of the Donald Trump Presidential campaign, which he has retained since the election.
Places targeted by the letter include the Harlem Business Alliance, Numero Uno Jewelry and a Starbucks in Harlem.
Also sent letters were a law firm, a law office and a bakery/butcher in Brooklyn.
The Israeli consulate in Midtown East also received a letter.
