On May 22, a West Ashley woman walked out of her apartment and saw that someone had spray-painted the word "nigger" on the hood of her car, according to an incident report from the Charleston Police Department.
The woman told police she had also found a note on her windshield that read, "You fucking niggers, why don't you go back to Africa," but she got so mad when she read it that she crumpled it up and threw it away.
The woman who reported the vandalism has not answered requests from the City Paper for comment. She told police that she got along well with her neighbors and that she could not think of anyone who would do such a thing.
