A hate crime is being investigated in Lindenhurst, New York after a black family received an anonymous note urging them to leave the town.
Ronica Copes, the woman who received the letter, shared her shock and a picture of the appalling letter on Facebook:
“Sooooo, I’m checking my mail and when I come across this I can’t help but laugh..wait, it’s not funny though. Where they do that at? Oh yeah Lindenhurst. Unbelievable but then it’s not…our daily reality, I’ve just never seen it in this form.”
The return sender is listed as “Lindenhurst Community,” while the Suffolk County Police Department has been made aware of the letter. A hate crime investigator visited Copes’ home this past Friday.
