But, This Is America!!!

From the New York Daily News:

An African-American family preparing to move into their new North Valley Stream home had a hate-filled welcome message painted on their garage door - on Martin Luther King Day.

"There's two swastikas. 'KKK' is written on the top and bottom and in between it says, 'Move out N-----,'" said Lee Burke, 43.

The Burkes aren't the first such victims on the block. In November 2003 and December 2004, there were "similar types" of racist graffiti spray-painted on the homes of two minority families who moved onto Frances Drive.

Burke said she was also very grateful for neighbors like James Guinsburg, 65, who welcomed her yesterday and expressed outrage over the racial slurs.

"I find it unconscionable that somebody would even do such a thing. This is America," said Guinsburg....


Exactly.
