NYACK -

A hate-filled message was found scrawled on the wall of a town center in Nyack Monday.

The message contained derogatory words spray-painted on the facade of the Nyack Center building off Main Street.

The graffiti was discovered by passers-by who reported it to Orangetown police.

More than 40 people came out to help paint over the spot, but organizers tell News 12 dozens more reached out offering their support.

The colors they chose were red, black and green to represent the Pan-African flag, but organizers say they want everyone to be represented and to send a message of unity.

Orangetown police says it is looking for the person or people responsible.
