A Florida man returned home to find the n-word had been ‘written’ on his front lawn in massive letters.
Courtney Gordon said he doesn’t appreciate the act, which is now being investigated as a possible hate crime. The vandals reportedly ‘burned’ the n-word in three-foot letters into Gordon’s lawn using chemicals.
“I feel like this is a threat to me and my family, so I’m not too happy about it,” Gordon told WESH-TV. “You can see them slowing down when they go by my house, so everybody’s just driving by and reading it.”
Police are investigating the case, but Gordon has his own suspicions about who did it.
“I have a feeling of who done it,” Gordon said. “It’s like a group of them, and I leave them to God. I’m a big guy, so they’re not gonna come to me and say that. They did it like the way they did it, behind my back and at night.”
Although Gordon had a security camera, it was not on at the time. However, he said that he will be sure to keep it on from now on.
“I feel that they’re a coward, because if they have an issue with me, it’s just best to come and speak to me, and not take it to a level as this,” Gordon said.
