CUNY under investigation for anti-Semitic graffiti

It was in the men’s bathroom in the West building

After recent anti-Semitic comments were discovered in a men’s bathroom located on the seventh floor of the West building, the City University of New York disclosed that related offensive material have also been found on other campuses.

The graffiti, as The Tab earlier reported, also contained offensive anti-Muslim and anti-African material.

According to a New York Post column, CUNY Chancellor James Milliken has ordered an investigation to take place, which prompted the creation of a new Campus Climate Task Force to monitor racist remarks found on campuses.

The graffiti had been scraped off when The Tab investigated

The NYP last week reported accusations of anti-Jewish hostility at CUNY, and published a letter addressed to the school from the Zionist Organization of America.

The ZOA called for probes into Students for Justice in Palestine, who they accused of “engaging in anti-Semitic and violent inciting conduct”.

“I think that students representing various groups, either ethnic or religious, are just as susceptible to propagating bigotry”, said Francesca Teora, a recent graduate of CUNY Hunter College.

“Unfortunately, this incident is not the first I’ve heard of at Hunter.”
