Yet another hate crime (watch both consecutive video news reports) that gets very little reporting because the roles of perpetrator and victim don’t follow the Jim Crow America image the media loves to portray. The graffiti scrawled all over this South Florida woman’s walls included “White Bread” and “FTW,” which I presume stands for “F-ck The White(s).”
A Ft. Lauderdale woman’s home was ransacked and vandalized with messages of hate, now police are hoping fingerprints left behind by those responsible will lead to their arrest.
Brandy Cochran believes her home was targeted because she is one of the few white people living in the predominantly African American neighborhood in the 23-hundred block of Northwest 26th Street. She said when she arrived home on Monday she found her home had been ransacked, robbed and racially hateful messages had been spray painted on every wall of her home. Cochran said her television was stolen as were her clothes.
Cochran said she’s glad her family wasn’t hurt. . . .
Cochran said she’s going to move because she no longer feels safe in the neighborhood.
Remember the “White Tax“? That took place in South Florida, too. Maybe she didn’t pay her share.
