DURHAM, NC (WTVD) — A house in Durham was tagged with racially explicit words.
Durham Police Department was at the scene when ABC11 arrived at the home in the Treyburn community Monday morning.
The garage of the house had been tagged with black spray paint reading “come buy this house,” “KKK,” and an explicit phrase. A wall had also been tagged with “Keep America White.”
Neighbors described the tagging as “appalling” and “disgusting.” They said many Black families live in the neighborhood, so they don’t know why one particular home would be tagged.
“I don’t understand the hatred, and I don’t understand the peope who chose to do this either,” neighbor Esther Jones said.
Jones has been living in the Treyburn community for 20 years. She said she and her husband moved there, in part, because of the diversity of the neighborhood
