Ferguson residents receive racist notes about Christmas on car windshields
Residents in Ferguson, Missouri found a racist Christmas letters on their car windshields last week.
On Tuesday Rosemary Nieters found a note on her car, which had been parked outside overnight. The note read: “Christmas is pure bred white nigger shit.”
“Itt scared me quite a bit,” Nieters says. “It made me shake all the way to work.”
Nieters isn’t the first to get this note. On December 19, Brian Villa found a note on his car near Tower Grove park that said, “Christmas is white nigger shit.” The note seems to be written in the same handwriting but with a different pen. Villa says he didn’t see notes on any nearby cars.
Nieters, who grew up in Ferguson, says the notes are particularly threatening after the turmoil that followed the shooting of 18-year-old Mike Brown in August.
“With everything that’s going on, it made me pretty nervous,” she says. “I just have to understand that it’s not personal. I think it’s very random.”
Tis the season for racism. A shame.
