An Alabama woman’s New Year’s Eve celebrations were cut short when she heard a crash as three windows in the front of her house were broken with rocks.
Terry Turner and her granddaughter slipped out the bedroom window after calling 911 — they were afraid someone was in the house.
When police arrived, they discovered the rocks thrown through the windows and the spray-painted garage door with a message that said: “Move N***** now.”
Terry has lived in the neighborhood for eight years and heard the slur shouted at her but never imagined things would escalate this far. Still, she holds no hatred in her heart for whoever did this.
“I don’t hate whoever did this. I just don’t understand it,” she said. “Racism is something that’s taught. When you get two babies in a room, a black baby and a white baby in a room, they don’t know nothing about that until they’re taught,”
