Graffiti on Clearbrook SE

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Police are investigating a case of racial vandalism on Grand Rapids’ Southast side. A family on Clearbrook Street SE found the graffiti Tuesday morning.

The family, who is white, says they don’t think they were targeted, but they do happen to live next to an African-American family.

The graffiti included a stick figure painted with X’s for eyes and the n-word on the road and a swastika and the words “White Power” on the garage door.

The family says the neighborhood is diverse and generally quiet, so the graffiti is surprising.

Anyone with information should call Grand Rapids Police at 616-456-3604.

    White power isn’t racist, if a white is pro white so what ? Kids read the rotten spue blacks say on you about bringing Amerika down along with the white race, so their destiny will be revealed. I think we all seen their destiny sitting starving holding kids they can’t feed starving waiting for someone to give them food and medicine.. Almost the same thing here in the us…
