Op-Ed: A Whitewashed Garage Door

Apr 11, 2017

By Jason Papallo and Michael Vidal 

In the beginning of 2017, a Stamford couple suffered a public hate crime in the form of racist graffiti, and they took an untypical approach in confronting it. 

The N-word, written on the garage door of Heather Lindsay and Lexene Charles, was a direct jab at Charles, and by extension a belittlement of the interracial couple. They responded by leaving up the racist slur in order to prompt local authorities to catch the perpetrator, as well as to open up a larger dialogue around systematic racism.
