experienced racism firsthand but having that hate plastered all over this corner of the neighborhood from the back of the building to the grocery store takes it to a whole new level. >> if this is what people wants to advocate, there's no hope in this great city in the world. >> reporter: people in portola are proud of their little neighborhood in san francisco's southeast corner calling it a true american melting pot. how long have you lived here? >> 15 years. >> reporter: have you ever seen anything like this? >> no. first time. >> reporter: but now many here wonder has that melting pot come to a rolling boil? is there tension in portola? >> not personally, not for me, but i know there's always conflict. >> reporter: not long after the tagging someone was quick to send a message right back at the vandals painting over knot, so the graffiti -- the no, so the graffiti means more chinese instead. by nightfall public works was scrubbing away, but some worry no amount of washing will completely get rid of the late.
