This isn't the first time this has happened to one of those signs in this area. Here is another story from a year ago down the road in Ypsilanti.
Police investigating after road sign found with offensive racial message

Good start.

If you don't think it's getting better, you don't know how bad it's been.

Good start.

When I was a kid we still had segregated schools, "whites only" beaches/restrooms/drinking fountains, In stores whites took the elevator while negroes took the stairs, there were signs in certain areas of town saying that ni**ers would be shot on sight if they were still in the area after sundown, negroes simply were not permitted to live or own property (even a business) North of Central avenue (not by law, but by public pressure, cross burnings, harassment, boycotts, and if none of that worked then by lynching the offender).

So yes, it is getting better, it is just frustratingly slow...sigh. :(

Our town still has an unresolved suspect lynching on the FBI books.
