Racial slur and ‘Trump 17’ painted on burned home of boy with leukemia

Racial slur and ‘Trump 17’ painted on burned home of boy with leukemia news 1x1.trans

The family of a 6-year-old boy with leukemia lost their home to a fire on New Year’s Eve, but more upsetting was the fact that they say they found racial slurs and racist graffiti painted on the charred remains of their home.

Joanne Perkins said that the fire started when her oldest son left the stove on while no one was home on New Year’s Eve. But when she came to look over their destroyed home, she also found a racial slur and “Trump 17” painted on another wall.

Even worse, her stepson, Ivory Norris , now has no place to come home to after his bone marrow transplant.

“How do I explain that to a 6-year-old whose only wish is he wants to come home?” Perkins asked WJAX. “How do I explain that to him?”

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

While the Red Cross has given them a place to stay in a hotel for a week, the family has nowhere to go after that.

“I’m tired. I am,” she said. “But nothing in me is going to allow me to give up.”

It's sad, her son burned the house, ppl don't care when they mark on an abandoned home. It is not the graffiti that is keeping the baby from the house, it is the point that the house was burned. It is sad, I will pray for the family.

Sick mofos.  The world is crumbling slowly, but surely.  No sensibility, no passion, no love, no respect for their fellow folks.  It is a sad, sad world.  It does not cost a single cent to love your fellow people or just leave them alone.
