And it's ugly. Very, very ugly.

This was found yesterday afternoon in an elevator at Canisius College.

Canisius president, John Hurley, issued a letter to students in staff, stating:

Last night, someone hung a black doll in an elevator in Frisch Hall. Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Terri Mangione and Public Safety Director Wil Johnson were notified immediately and are investigating this incident.  We will hold responsible whoever perpetuated this despicable act that goes against everything for which Canisius College stands.  I cannot condemn this act strongly enough.  This cannot and will not be tolerated on the Canisius campus.

In Allegheny County, this was found spray-painted on a softball dugout in Island Park in Wellsville, NY.

By Wednesday, concerned citizens had painted over the graffiti with black paint.

The Wellsville police chief saw no cause for action, according to this story from the Wellsville Daily Reporter. That is, unless, somebody makes a complaint.  Chief Tim O'Grady said, "It's vandalism. We'll look into it."
