A blog devoted to my home town! Scroll past the story about the handicapped girl attacked by teenagers and the picture of the vandalised trees until you arrive at the store with the swastika painted on it—above the images of the trashed bus shelter. That’s next to my old primary school, and just around the corner from where my aunt and grandmother still live:
Swastikas and associated anti-Jewish slurs have also recently appeared at the University of California, Irvine, leading to a meeting between concerned Jewish students and Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Manuel N. Gómez. The meeting wasn’t entirely successful; although Gomez recognised that hate speech may be present, he would not seek to curtail it, as “one person’s hate speech is another person’s education.”
