A mural in Saint-Henri denouncing white supremacy was vandalized, just days after its inauguration, with what community leaders say is a racist message.

The mural by Colombian-American artist Jessica Sabogal depicts an Indigenous woman holding up a sign in front of her eye that says “White supremacy is killing me.”
