CSX condemns alleged antisemitic display on building Saturday night in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — UPDATE 11:29 a.m.: CSX told Action News Jax it is investigating whether the projection was a hoax shared online. Regardless, the organizations said the images circulating online are “shocking” and “hurtful” and in no way represents the organization.


Hateful displays have evidently re-appeared in Jacksonville. As the Jacksonville Jaguars played at TIAA Bank Field on Saturday night, a swastika and cross were allegedly projected on the side of the CSX building.

You may recall during Georgia-Florida weekend there were multiple displays of Confederate flags. And during a Jaguars home game, a plane banner displaying a Confederate flag flew over the stadium.

CSX says it condemns in the strongest possible terms the antisemitic imagery, saying it is hurtful and in no way represents the company or its employees.

“The increased acts of antisemitism in Jacksonville are unacceptable. They are an appalling display of intolerance, which sows hatred and undermines our greatest strength - our diversity,” CSX said in a statement.

The company, headquartered on the Northbank, said it will continue to take action to help raise awareness and ensure that everyone feels welcome as a member of our community.
