The tweet from Chris Hayes linked to a story titled “Interracial couple fined for not removing racial slur spray painted on their garage.” I figured, for sure, it happened somewhere in the Confereracy, but:
STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — An interracial Connecticut couple whose home was vandalized by a racial slur has been fined for failing to cover it up.
The Stamford Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2lAiTvP ) the slur was spray-painted over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend on the garage door of Heather Lindsay, who’s white, and Lexene Charles, who’s black.
Lindsay says their home has been vandalized multiple times. She says Stamford authorities have failed to properly investigate and she won’t remove the slur until they do.
The city issued a blight citation, which carries a $100 daily fine.
I suppose the City is hyper technically in the right, if one wears blinkers.
