BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police are investigating a case of racist and anti-Semitic graffiti that was spray-painted at a local park.

Swastikas, the n-word and Hitler?s name were written on a wall at Puglio park. The vandals also referred to the White Wolves, a white supremacist group.

Leaders from the local black and Jewish communities condemned the graffiti as an act of hate and ignorance.

?People who have done this know little about the Jewish culture and very little about the African-American culture,? Bridgeport NAACP President Craig Kelly says. ?Sadly this is not new.?

Laurie Gross of the Jewish Federation for Eastern Fairfield County says a dialogue should be opened to tackle such issues.
