I had an opportunity to talk to Elijah Brunson, a concerned member of the community. Elijah, who has lived in Crescent City for about 5 years now, with much of his work has revolved around working with youth, recently posted a photo on social media depicting a piece of racist graffiti depicting the words hastily spray-painted, quote, “White Lives Matter More.” The post garnered quite a bit of attention.
Elijah reached out to Redwood Voice with the photo, hoping to inform us of the graffiti. I asked to interview him in order to get both the situation documented and get his thoughts on the matter. While he discusses both the vandalism of the billboard and the graffiti, and how these acts of racism are despicable, he also talks about how they are taking away from the many genuine problems our community is facing due to the division.
