The NYPD is investigating a possible hate crime at the Parks Department’s Bronx headquarters, where a black baby doll was found hanging by a metal chain noose yesterday morning. Geoffrey Croft at NYC Park Advocates reports that the 15 inch doll was discovered by a sixty-year-old black male Parks Department employee who had just returned to work from being out sick. One Parks employee tells Croft the man was traumatized and “looked like he was going to have a stroke.” Three KKKs were also found scratched in a unisex bathroom on the first floor, sources tell Croft.
OK, a 60-year-old was traumatized over this and was going to have a stroke? Really?
One local outlet notes it’s not a black doll, but an African-American doll. Thanks for clearing that up.
