A neighbor on 37th Street sent this in last night, and I don’t even know really what to say for the lead in here:
A few nights ago while sitting on my porch of 45 years, a white truck with two young white males yelled out “hey nigga “. It caught us off guard as we were thinking someone needed directions; which is usually the case.
My family has lived in our home since Fulton bottom was destroyed. My family has owned businesses in Church Hill and still do. My father was born in a house on 33rd st… he is almost 70 years old. I don’t understand this type of behavior and I hope it doesn’t occur again. It’s something that has never happened to us in this area.
We kinda laughed it off because we were in disbelief. Then I thought back a couple of weeks ago, my cousin was sitting in her yard in Highland Springs and a group of teens yelled out “nigga bitch” while holding a Confederate flag.
