Anonymous racist letter sparks outrage among Wake Forest neighbors
Residents of a Wake Forest neighborhood expressed outrage Monday after learning that a family received an unsigned letter last week warning them against posting any Black Lives Matter signs in their yard.
Mary Anna Morin was shocked to learn what one of her neighbors and wake feel estates received in the mail. I couldn't believe that somebody in my neighborhood as that close to me would have written something so mean more. And, says her neighbor, a white woman who is married to a black man, received this letter warning them not to express black lives matter views in their neighborhood. The couple sent copies to neighbors with a note attached, hoping to find who sent them the letter. Here's some of what it said. Please remember that the rest of us live in an upscale neighborhood and have spent the extra money to stay out of mixed neighborhoods and or the ghetto. The letter goes on to say, Please keep your husband and teenage kids well behaved and orderly because no one is interested in your or their struggles. I was horrified, appalled, disappointed, sad. Kate Parang is a neighbor and friend of the couple that received the letter. Something has to change, and we are all God's Children. We're all created equal. What happened to love thy neighbor like treat each other with respect with kindness. The writer also told the family quote, Most of us would not hesitate to call the police if your kids or husband gets unruly. In the end, underneath all the context, it was a threat. In the note to neighbors, they asked the person responsible to step forward, saying Quote, We're happy to have a discussion regarding love, respect and racism. If you have the courage. Neighbors say, it's a reminder that racism is everywhere. It's not just in the city, it's not just in the streets, it's in our neighborhoods.
