The Christopher Columbus Statue on Boston’s North End was vandalized Monday night with red paint and the phrase “Black Lives Matter,” Boston police said.
Red paint was poured over the top and sides of the white marble statute. The slogan, which has become a common refrain at demonstrations across the U.S. in protest of police violence towards African Americans, was spray painted in black letters.
