Artist Jay Shells channeled his love of hip hop music and his uncanny sign-making skills towards a brand new project: “Rap Quotes.” For this ongoing project, Shells created official-looking street signs quoting famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations.

"The police department told BuzzFeed that it did not know if the incident would be classified as a hate crime, but said the investigation would continue for months."

quote from this article about a shooting at TWO jewish community centers TWO where the shooter said “HEIL HITLER” before killing jews

fuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyou

HOW CAN THIS NOT BE ANTISEMITISM OR A HATE CRIME IF HE WENT TO TWO DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO KILL JEWS AND SAID HEIL HITLER ON THE NIGHT BEFORE PASSOVER ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME

He was also a grand dragon in the KKK, founded something called the White Patriot Party, tried to run radio ads back in 2010 where he ranted publically about Jews, and literally wrote a book on racial purity. If he could have worn a flashing neon sign that stated “I hate Jews and am a humongous racist and an antisemite” he most likely would have.

"We younger Negro artists who create now intend to express our individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame. If white people are pleased we are glad. If they are not, it doesn’t matter. We know we are beautiful. And ugly too. If colored people are pleased we are glad. If they are not, their displeasure doesn’t matter either. We build our temples for tomorrow, strong as we know how, and we stand on top of the mountain, free within ourselves."
