New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state will be investigating two incidents here in WNY as hate crimes! The first in Wellsville and then at SUNY Geneseo, according to WGRZ. On Friday, a swastika and the word "Trump" was written outside SUNY Geneseo Nassau Residence Hall. In Wellsville, there was graffiti saying, "Make America White Again," with a swastika! Cuomo said, "It is unacceptable that this is the second investigation that we have had to announce in the last several hours. Any and every reported incident will be investigated and pursued to the fullest extent of the law by the State Police and the Division of Human Rights. To any New Yorker who is scared, I want you to know that we have your back, that we will keep you safe, and that protecting your rights is what America stands for."
