‘N*gger Go Home’: Racist Vandals Target Black Woman After She Moves to Wealthy Maryland Town

Police in Chevy Chase, Maryland, are investigating a hate incident after vandals spray painted racial epithets on a black woman’s garage door just days after she moved to the neighborhood.

Police say a neighbor saw that someone had spray painted the words “N*gger Go Home” on the woman’s garage door and helped her clean it off before calling the police on Monday morning.

Police say the spray painting incident occurred somewhere between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning and the woman was the only one targeted, adding they have not received any other vandalism complaints.

Police Captain Paul Stark told WTOP, “The victim has just moved in a little over a week ago.”

The Daily Mail reports that Chevy Chase sports a median household income of over $250,000 and is home to hundreds of government officials and lawyers.

Detectives are now investigating the incident as a hate crime.
