Disturbing local news from Rustbelt Radio, based at WRCT 88.3 FM:
Last week rustbelt radio reported on the racist threat made against a Port Authority worker in the form of a black Barbie doll with a racist comment written on it.
Since then two more incidents of racial intimidation have occurred at Pittsburgh businesses. On October 3rd a black female supervisor at Verizon found an inter-office envelope on her desk. Inside it had a black baby doll with a noose around its neck. The doll also had the words “nigger” and the woman’s name written on the belly.
NAACP Pittsburgh Branch President M. Gayle Moss issued a statement on the three incidents, saying, “Although these three incidents seem isolated in their respective work environments, what they collectively represent is endemic to the culture in this region and this city recently voted the ‘Most Livable City in America’—which in my opinion was both fallacious and shortsighted.”
