A Houston man was left shaken after his home and vehicle were defaced with racist hate speech.
The Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office said the 51-year-old resident, who wished to remain anonymous, woke up Friday morning to his burned out SUV that had ‘N****r LEAVE’ and ‘GET Out’ painted in red on the car doors, according to KPRC.
He told the station that he was when he saw flashing lights just after 5am and noticed his car was on fire.
‘I walked to the front and looked out the window and seen my car out there all burned up,’ the man, who lives at the home alone, told the station.
‘It’s disturbing. It’s sick thoughts that makes people do these crazy things,’ he said.
The same racist speech was also found on the man’s home in the 300 block of San Jacinto Street.
Yeah, it’s disturbing alright, that people keep committing these hate crime hoaxes. When are these fools gonna learn that you never get away with it?
Here’s one telling comment from the article:
I live in this area, and it is almost entirely black. Racism is pretty much non-existent here and it is inner city so no one really cares. That this man has only been in this house for 8 months makes me suspicious. Most likely he is new to Houston and from a northern city were he can get a rise out of people by playing the racist card. Good luck with that here. If I were a betting man I would bet that this will turn out to be a hoax with the goal of getting an insurance payment on the car which the owner is likely no longer able to afford.
I’m pretty sure the local police aren’t fooled one bit and are already investigating the “victim.” Don’t be surprised if they find an empty can of red spray paint in his garbage can with his fingerprints on it.
BTW: Judging from the pic above, I see he couldn’t wait to post this to his Facebook page, because that’s what a shocked victim of racism would do. Better get your 15 minutes of Facebook fame before the cops haul your ass to jail for arson and insurance fraud.
Oh and for those who insist such cases of fraud are isolated incidents, The Lid blog has a list of 30 fake hate crimes that have occurred since Obama was elected.
