NAACP blasts Stamford’s response to racist incident – StamfordAdvocate

NAACP blasts Stamford’s response to racist incident – StamfordAdvocate – The City of Stamford has issued the couple a blight citation, which carries a $100 daily fine, for failing to remove or cover up the N-word in front of their home.

Homeowner Heather Lindsay, who is white, said she won’t remove the racial slur from her garage door until authorities “do their job” and “not just cover it up and sweep it under the table as they have done in the past.”

Lindsay said her home on High Clear Drive has been vandalized several times and at least three of her neighbors have yelled the N-word at her husband, Lexene Charles, who is black.

Several friends and representatives of the local and state NAACP chapters held a news conference outside the couple’s home Monday morning to condemn the Jan. 14 incident and denounce the city’s response.
