Racist posting draws political ire and distracts from Spokane Valley community event
A racist Facebook post cast a shadow over the Recreation Against Racism event held Sunday at the HUB Sports Center in Spokane Valley.
The Facebook invitation for the HUB event included a photo of a racial slur that was spray-painted on the The Martin Luther King Jr. Family Outreach Center in November.
The photo, posted by Scott Maclay on the Rattlesnakes Motorcycle Club page, copied the invitation and added this commentary, which has been edited to erase offensive language:
“Is it possible, that the (N-word) effigy painted on the side of the MLK Building on the lower South Hill was possible placed their (sic) by … (N-word)? And, not any other organized white supremacy group supporting this agenda? I mean… is their (sic) even a white sepremacy (sic) group in Spokane?”
