Family Finds Racial Slurs On Burned Home Of Boy With Leukemia

She said when she came over on Monday morning to salvage what was left of their belongings, she saw a racist slur spray-painted on the back of their home and “Trump 17” painted on the side.

“I won’t let the girls come back here because I don’t want them to see,” Perkins said. “This is 2017. It doesn’t make any sense. I don’t understand it.”

Perkins said the Red Cross is putting her family of six up in a hotel for a week, but after that they have nowhere to go.
