Swastika, Anti-Semitic Slur Painted On Staten Island Home

A Jewish family’s home in New York City’s Staten Island was defaced with a swastika and an anti-Semitic slur, the local news website SILive reported Wednesday.

Debra Calabrese said she discovered the swastika and the word “kyke,” both painted in black paint, on her garage after her son informed her early Wednesday morning.

“I was very devastated,” Calabrese told the site. “It’s disturbing. It’s a horrible thing.”

She said that she not going to remove the markings; she will leave them up for everyone to see.

“I’m not ready to do it yet, because I don’t want them to just forget about this,” she told DNAinfo New York.

Last week, vandals scratched the phrase “n——-s get out” on the car of a black family in a nearby neighborhood.
