On the day set aside to celebrate the achievements and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, a woman in Chevy Chase, Maryland had her home vandalized with the words "Nigger Go Home" in red spray paint.
According to NBC Washington, Montgomery County police say a neighbor alerted the homeowner of the graffiti on the garage door. The woman and her family had been living in the home for a little more than a week before the incident occurred.
A similar incident happened to a 70-year-old woman in Alabama on New Year's Eve.
