USA - Antisemitic graffiti scrawled on Lake View buildings

Chicago, IL
- Graffiti that appears to deliver a message of anti-Semitic hate has popped up on multiple buildings in Chicago's Lake View neighborhood, prompting concerns among the city's Jewish community and nearby residents.

A caricature many people may find offensive was painted on buildings at the following intersections: Belmont Avenue and Orchard Street, Roscoe Street and Broadway as well as at Melrose Street and Broadway.

"They were tags that kind depict a stereotypical derogatory Jewish man with a big nose, possibly horns, which are very stereotypical, and very, I guess you can say, racist," Madeline Isaacs, a Lake View East resident, explained.
