WAKE FOREST, N.C. (WNCN) — Dozens of people took to the streets in the Wakefield community in Wake County Friday night in response to a racially charged letter that was sent to an interracial family living there.
Using pots, pans and loudspeakers, protesters took to the streets asking those living there to get out of their homes and into the streets to demand change from their neighbors.
The protest was in response to an anonymous letter that was sent to an interracial family living in Wakefield Estates. The letter reads in part “please keep your husband and kids well behaved and orderly. Most of us would not hesitate to call the police if they get unruly.”
Demonstrators say it’s time that the people living in the neighborhood take a stand against injustice even if it means taking a stand against one of their neighbors.
