EL PASO, Texas -- Thousands of El Paso residents were exposed to a shocking scene of hate speech for at least 5 days.

Motorists noticed a slew of racist slurs that had been prominently spray painted on the side of a cement factory in west El Paso.

The racist, anti-Semitic and anti-police phrases could easily been seen from West Paisano Drive, just before Executive Boulevard.

The responsible party had broken into the El Paso terminal of the Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua factory at 2825 West Paisano to display the message of intolerance.

The graffiti was first noticed last Thursday and was still up on display as of noon on Monday, but was then finally painted over soon after.

When asked about the graffiti, company officials said they were completely unaware of its existence until they were notified about it by ABC-7.

“We will be looking into our security measures to find out anything we can do to prevent this from happening in the future," said GCC spokesperson Mica Ward. "We were horrified. This is nothing that we would ever condone and we do not approve of this sort of hate speech in any of our facilities or from any of our employees.”

Though no arrests have been made yet, officials with the El Paso Police Department have confirmed that their gang unit is now actively investigating the incident.

    1. A very high percentage of “hate crimes” like this are HOAXES perpetrated by a minority hate monger of one stripe or another.
      .
      This one will be to, watch.

  1. So if it was the black panthers spewing their hate against white folk, that would be ok? Before anyone jumps to conclusions, I’m not white. Just stating my opinion that hate works both ways. La Raza hates whites and blacks. The democrats hate racism but it was the democrats that wanted to keep slavery. How does that work? Black lives matter but only for blacks. What happens to Asians, Hispanics, Indians etc. etc. etc. Don’t they count? So how correct is Cara? Not very.

      1. Cara these KViA trolls are vicious and any time you point out their shortcomings they go nuts. I’ve been pointing out their bigotry, misogyny, homophobia and stupidity for years. Same culprits like madmike, jamesben, Fero2A (posing as AlbertVelarde who for some reason he hates) and other names they hide behind. KVIA should do something to curb their nonsense but have nothing.

        1. Schizo much? Talking to yourselves again. Daniel Flores, Cara and fero2dmadmikegeedubb are all the psycho troll Alberto. originally known as High420Lonesome the idiot from Commiefornia. We’ve been exposing this imbecile and phony for years.

        2. Daniel, the sobering truth about this whole posting thing is that you can never have an adult, civilized conversation. These trolls want all the attention on their boring and boastful and hateful cliches. They do not have one single original idea. Just a bunch of nuts.

  2. Kudos to the authorities for looking into it as a gang crime. They do a good job basically keeping overt gang activity to zero. That’s probably not accurate but I rarely hear about in the media or see signs of gang activity. Of course there is a diverse underground of undesirables.

  3. I always find it amazing that KVIA allows the vile racist and profanity-laden remarks of Alberto Velarde to stand, while putting a moderating hold on others’ remarks
