Where Native America meets pop culture

Hate crime against Lower Elwha
Port Angeles mural vandalism filled with racial slurs, but police chief says it's not a hate crime
Faces of Native Americans depicted on a scene of the Ennis Creek waterfront that would become east Port Angeles are blacked out.
A "white power" declaration is painted over the canoes.
Obscenities and racial slurs cover the canoes and other depictions of a serene Klallam village of Y'ennis around 1750.
A crudely drawn devil face seemingly floats in the sky.
Comment: If this isn't a hate crime, what is?
