Oklahoma Man Killed By Racist Neighbor Who Bullied Him For Years
For years, the Jabara family says, their Tulsa neighbor terrorized them. He called them names — “dirty Arabs,” “filthy Lebanese,” they said.
He hurled racial epithets at those who came to work on their lawns, they alleged.
He ran Haifa Jabara over with his car and went to court for it. And it all came to a head last week when the man, Stanley Vernon Majors, walked up to the front steps of the family home and shot and killed Khalid Jabara, police said.
The Jabara family moved into their current home 12 years ago. A few years later, Stanley Majors moved into the house next door. The harassment and intimidation began almost immediately, they say.
“He’d call us names all the time. ‘You dirty Arabs, get out of here,'” the mother, Haifa Jabara, told CNN.
“I had a guy who mowed our lawn, he’s black. He’d scream, ‘You N-word, get out of here.” Neighbors lodged several complaints with police against Majors over his behavior.
And in 2013, the family filed a protective order, which forbade Majors from having any contact with the Jabaras.
It didn’t make a difference.
This is so sad!!!!
