N-word sprawled all over interracial couple's burned home. Possible hate crime?
It's such a pity that the Council Bluffs police Sgt. David Dawson would call such acts of vandalism against an interracial couple a "possible hate crime" when the N-word is sprawled over the couple's burned home. "We very rarely have anything that I can remember for quite a while that I would say is related to a hate crime over here," Dawson says.
Possible? It is a hate crime for crying out loud.
"I’m very angry," Shelly Owen, the victim said. "I’m just fortunate that my kids were in school and that we weren’t home. They wrote the ‘N-word’ all over my walls. This is against me, I guess, and it’s a hate crime."

Yes Shelly! I agree!
Shelly white and her fiance African American found their house in Iowa set ablaze by unknown assailants after they got back from work.
Possible hate crime? Lets call a spade a spade. It’s a hate crime that’s what it is. The other day, it was reported that an interracial couple was fighting for their right to stay in the small town of Leith, N.D. Bobby and Sherrill Harper are the town's only interracial couple. The town has a population of 16. Bobby, is the only black man in town and one Leith resident, Paul Craig Cobb feels one black man is too much black for the town. They have received letters, one saying "leave your "husband" ... Separation of the races forever!" One of the letters targeted to Sherrill calls her "filthy, race-mixing white woman" and "pea-brained."
Sugar-coating these things is why they keep happening; sadly to many black and white couples - and I don't mean they should be happening to other interracial couples. Hope the perpetrators are caught and brought to justice. That is what such interracial couples need: JUSTICE!!!
