NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Hate-filled, racist and sexist messages have been scrawled on the bathroom walls at the One World Trade Center site.
The graffiti at the 104-story building appears to target several groups, including Muslims, Irish, Jews and women, 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg reported.
“I won’t even repeat it because it’s stupid,” a worker at the site said. “It needs to be left in the bathroom. It should be flushed down the toilet.”
CBS 2’s Don Dahler obtained photos of scrawled messages left on unfinished walls and temporary bathrooms. For instance, one slur said, “theme: people who annoy you,” and someone answered with the N-word. In fact, that racial epithet appears in numerous other writings/ In addition, someone made a list of offensive racial nicknames, including one for Arabs that also features the N-word.
But the authors were at least equal-opportunity offenders.
“Woman don’t belong in construction,” argues one. “Maybe painting, that’s it.”
Then who’s gonna [perform a sexual act] on us?” asks someone else.
More examples include: “Irish take a bath ya smelly [expletive]” and “white trash stash.”
