An Indian man living in Peyton, Colorado, discovered xenophobic slurs, dog poop and eggs trashing the outside of his house over the weekend.
According to Denver media reports, racial slurs and hateful messages were written all over the man’s home. Looking at all the damage caused, authorities believe that a group of people was involved in the racist attack.
“We saw more than 50 papers stuck everywhere on our door, window, car — they smeared dog poop everywhere and they had thrown at least like 40 eggs on our walls on our ceilings, everywhere outside,” said the unnamed homeowner according to CBS Denver.
“About 10 percent of the messages were racial slur on us, ‘You brown or Indian shouldn’t be here,’ something like that,” he added. “So it was frightening.”
Denver media reported that the man did not want to show his face on camera. The homeowner still has faith in the United States of America, despite the hate, and believes in the compassion showed to him by his neighbors and supporters who came together and cleaned his house.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating the crime.
The practice of spreading hate messages and xenophobia is gaining popularity in President Donald Trump’s America as days progress. Last week a 50-year-old man entered a bar and shot two Indian men after yelling, “Get out of my country.”
The widow of one of the men he shot revealed she was living in fear ever since Trump won the election. She blamed the government for the loss of her husband’s life that was taken away by a white supremacist who believed in Trump’s rhetoric of xenophobia.
