‘Violent racist’ vandalism on Winthrop University Tillman portrait causes $3K in damages

Someone painted “violent racist” on a portrait of former governor Benjamin Tillman in Winthrop’s Tillman Hall in Rock Hill, SC on Thursday morning. No arrests have been made. This comes just days after another statue of Tillman was vandalized in Columbia following protests after the slayings of nine people at a black church in Charleston.
