Man finds N-word burned into front garden grass

OUTRAGED: Courtney Gordon

A FLORIDA homeowner was enraged when he discovered that vandals had burned a racist slur into his front garden.

It is believed that the perpetrators used some sort of chemical to burn the three-foot letters spelling out the word “n**ger” on Courtney Gordon’s front lawn, US news station, WESH 2 reported.

Gordon has an idea of who committed the crime, but authorities have said that unless someone confesses, it will be a tough crime to solve.

“I feel like this is a threat to me and my family, so I’m not too happy about it,” Gordon told the news station. “You can see [people] slowing down when they go by my house, so everybody’s just driving by and reading it.


THREATENING: The large letters were burned into the grass

“I feel that they’re a coward, because if they have an issue with me, it’s just best to come and speak to me and not take it to a level as this,” Gordon added.

Gordon has a surveillance camera, but it wasn’t on at the time of the vandalism. He said from now on, he will keep it on.

“I leave them to God,” he said. “I’m a big guy, so they’re not gonna come to me and say that. They did it like the way they did it: behind my back and at night.”
