Posted June 30, 2018 05:00:48In a new interview, the owner of a New York City building that was once home to a racist and sexist graffiti that targeted black people and other minority groups has been asked to stop by the city.
The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said that after being contacted by the building’s owner, she asked the building manager to remove the graffiti.
“It was really a matter of being respectful,” the woman said.
“It’s a real issue.”
She said that the woman told the manager to ask the woman to stop calling black people niggers and the woman did, but that he continued to call her a nigger.
The building manager also responded by telling the woman that it was not her job to remove offensive graffiti.
“I told him, ‘We can’t remove it because it’s racist,'” she said.
The next day, she and a group of other residents took to the sidewalk to call the building owner, who had been working on the roof for more than a year.
“We asked him if he was racist and he said, ‘It’s not my job,'” she told the newspaper.
“It just didn’t make sense to me,” she said, adding that the building was “just going to get worse”.
“I thought that was the end of it,” she added.
“He had been going through his cleaning and he hadn’t done anything for a long time, and he just kept telling us that it’s not his job.”
The building owner and the building managers office did not respond to requests for comment.
