NC State GLBT center vandalized
 
RALEIGH, N.C. — Police at North Carolina State University are investigating a case of vandalism at the campus’s gay and lesbian center.
Justine Hollingshead, director of the N.C. State GLBT Center, said Tuesday that someone spray-painted a homophobic slur and the words “burn” and “die” on the outside of the center’s door and display case Monday night inside Harrelson Hall.
"It’s a little unnerving," she said. "This isn’t free expression," she said. "It was directed at the GLBT community and occurred right at the center of campus. It certainly proves that we have work to do."
"People have different beliefs, and unfortunately, those don’t always align with what we would hope at the institution that everybody can feel welcome," Hollingshead said.

"One or two individuals chose to do what they did in an act of hatred. That’s not the values and beliefs of the institution, and that’s not the values and beliefs of most people that are here," she added.
This isn’t the first time N.C. State has had to deal with defamatory remarks on the campus.
Racist speech in the campus’s Free Expression Tunnel became an issue after graffiti threatening violence against President Barack Obama was spray painted the night he was elected in November 2008.
The incident prompted the University of North Carolina System to adopt a policy prohibiting actions defined by federal and state laws as hate crimes.
In 2010, someone also painted racist and homophobic graffiti involving Obama in the Free Expression Tunnel, a public pedestrian tunnel on campus where students can express themselves by painting on the walls, ceiling and floor.
