Alabama Grandma’s Home Vandalized With Racist Graffiti


Limestone County resident, Terry Turner, was celebrating the New Year with her granddaughter when a series of crashes at the front of her house shocked her. Three of her front room’s windows were broken by heavy rocks. The vandals tried to terrorize her further by spray-painting “MOVE NIGGER NOW” on the garage door in her driveway.


Turner told WAFF, “This is my home. I’m free to live wherever I want to live. I’m not going anywhere at all.”

“Racism is something that’s taught. When you get two babies in a room, a black baby and a white baby, they don’t know nothing about that until they’re taught,” she added.

Turner told reporters she has lived there for eight years and has endured people driving by her home and yelling racial slurs at her and her family. But she never thought it would get this bad.

The old grandmother, however, doesn’t despise those who attacked her home. “I don’t hate whoever did this. I just don’t understand it. For people to just be hated because of the color of their skin is unacceptable,” Turner told WHNT News.

Limestone County Sheriff, Mike Blakely, couldn’t determine what motivated the vandals to target the home, so the police are treating the incident as criminal mischief and not as a hate crime.

However, Huntsville NAACP leader, Alice Sams, believed this was a hate crime. “It is really frightening to think that someone would come onto your property and write hate words. This is 2015,” said Sams.

Some of Turner’s neighbors stepped up in order to show that she was not alone. One Good Samaritan dropped by with a $50 gift card to help with restoration efforts. Hilary Gould, another neighbor, launched a GoFundMe page to raise funds to repair the home of Terry Turner and has so far raised $950.

  1. I am so sorry for the grandmother who lives at that house,I mean, why can’t we all be taught the right way that we should all be treated as equals ? Appearance doesn’t matter, but the way you act does show a reflection of who you are. It’s on the inside that counts. At least, there are some kind hearted neighbors who show some sympathy for Terry, and I’m very relieved at that ending, however, I do hope that whoever done this, will be feeling some regret after being found out, and by that, I meant apologizing to the person whose house was broken into .

    • Why do we fight? Why do not we just might be able to enter into alliance and conquer the universe and make great, and yet mightier deeds? You bastards racists, DIE!
