How to remove an element from website


I have been looking forever for how to manipulate the left-side black-colored sidebar on the following website I'm working on:


I am using the 2014 theme and cannot figure out which class this black sidebar is tied to.

Any help would be very appreciated!

On line 3610 in your style.css there's a pseudo element selector: .site:before { background-color: #000; ... }

Note that it is inside a media query: @media screen and (min-width: 1008px) { ... }

so the styles and color may vary on different screen sizes
