North Alabama woman finds racial slur written on her home

ELKMONT, Ala. (WIAT) — New Year’s Day is a day for fresh starts and new outlooks; but for one north Alabama woman, it’s marred by hate. On New Year’s Eve, a Limestone County family was awakened by a loud crash and a vandal’s statement written in bold black paint on the garage door.

There were three windows smashed by heavy rocks and shattered glass was hidden in the carpet. Homeowner Terry Turner called the police. Their arrival is what led to Terry learning of the graphic slur written on the outside of her home.

“I was just in awe, still in awe,” says Turner, “Racism is something that’s taught. When you get two babies in a room, a black baby and a white baby in a room, they don’t know anything about that until they’re taught.”

No one is in custody at this time, but Turner believes more than one person is responsible for the graffiti.
