*NSFW* *trigger warning* Mother of Biracial Child Stunned, Shaken by Hate Graffiti on Front Door
Yes, in 2014:
Donna Pfarr was the victim of a hate crime last weekend, but perhaps the most newsworthy part of her story is how she responded: “with love, with silence, with forgiveness.”
But first there was confusion. Pfarr awoke Sunday morning to the sound of Robbinsdale police at her apartment door. A neighbor had alerted cops to graffiti that had been spray-painted across the 38-year-old single mother’s front door that read, “Nigga Lover Bitch,” which left Pfarr scared, discouraged, and worried about both her safety and that of her 12-year-old daughter, Indigo, who was at a sleepover with a friend at the time.
“I can’t think of anyone who would hate me enough to want to hurt my child. My daughter is biracial; her father lives in Duluth. I sat Indigo down and told her what happened, and the only words out of her mouth were, ‘Am I in danger?’ To hear that coming from your daughter is heartbreaking. As a single mother, I’ve worked very hard to build her a safe home, and a place to feel secure, and now I feel like this one violation has diminished everything that I’ve done to help make her feel safe.”
