Public Data Ferret: City Will Remove Race-Based Graffiti From Boating Center

September 29, 2011

Only last month, after 12 years and a $3 million public-private fundraising effort, the George Corkery Family Boating Center re-opened at the City of Seattle's Mount Baker Rowing and Sailing Center at Stan Sayres Memorial Park along Lake Washington Boulevard in Seattle's Mount Baker neighborhood. The Rainier Valley Post reported on the milestone. It's a great, community-driven improvement to a government-owned site that's a hub for aquatic recreation in boating-mad Seattle and a focal point every summer for the iconic hydro races of SeaFair. It's now unfortunately also the site of some ugly graffiti which blames "white people" for a U.S. "terror-hate" campaign in Iraq. More at Public Data Ferret.
