Omri Casspi’s Mural Defaced Again

Another swastika appeared on the Kings’ player’s mural in Sacramento, reports the Sac Bee. Sigh: “A midtown mural depicting Sacramento Kings player Omri Casspi recently was defaced with a swastika – the second time in a week, according to authorities. An unidentified caller reported the vandalism on the mural – painted along the east side of 16th street, south of Q Street – to city officials about 10:30 a.m., said Sacramento police Sgt. Norm Leong. City workers painted over the swastika shortly thereafter. Leong said it’s unclear when the vandalism occurred, though it likely was recent … Sacramento’s Crime Alert organization is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information regarding the crime. Recently, officials from the Anti-Defamation League supplemented that reward with an additional $1,000.”

    Wow, Boing Dynasty. Thanks for trolling. See ya later.

    What’s most disappointing to me is that Tom Ziller said on Twitter he’d be defending the Omri Casspi mural with a Louisville Slugger, and then this happens. Guess he was too busy writing the Works. Seems like a fair tradeoff to me, though.

    It’s funny because racist anti-Israel rhetoric is frowned upon when someone defaces a poster, but it’s okay when CNN does it just as much, but is less obvious about it.

    Muslims are bashed in USA wo an eyelash being batted. Why are panties in a bunch now?

    Contrary to popular belief, sk!nheads are NOT the only racist white people out there. Just for your info. And we aren’t sure if the defacers were white.
    Whoever did this is a coward and deserves his/her @ss kicked two times.

    Co-sign Doyouwantmore. Though I’m pretty sure CNN isn’t anywhere near the worst… On a side note, I SMH at the logic behind: “Zionism has NOTHING to do with Judaism… We love Jews but we h@te Israel! …You know, because they don’t deserve to govern themselves on their ancestral land!”

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Oh yeah, also the swastika over the mural is not just anti-Israel rhetoric, it’s also a huge defamation of the Jewish population in America as a whole.

    I don’t see how the israel issue should be brought into it. I don’t agree with how that state was founded nor what it does in the region, but Omri was born there. He isn’t david ben gurion and he isn’t benjamin netanyahu. Furthermore, his statements on arab israeli relations are highly responsible. He’s one of those who does his part to bridge the divide so why mention anything about the treatment of israel in the press?

    As for racism, yeah, its everywhere. I went to ethiopia for a month in the summer, and they make the same statements about outgroups that people in north america do. For them, its arabs as the main problem, so their view of arabs is pretty racist, even though most arabs are just like them: Born poor, die poor, never travel more than 100 km from where they live, meaning that they don’t have any impact on anyone elses lives.

    You go to europe you hear similar things. Or listen to different groups from asia talk about eachother. THats why its a constant struggle to end racism, not a victory that can be won.
