Wilmington police investigate racist graffiti as hate crime

- Racist images were discovered in Wilmington, Delaware. The images were posted to Facebook. They have since been shared thousands of times. Wilmington police say they are investigating this as a hate crime. 

"It exists. It's here, it exists in America. Nothing you can say to describe how that feels," the victim's brother Micheaux Taylor told FOX 29.

Taylor is referring to racism. He has no words for the hateful, anti-semitic and profanity-laced messages spray- painted all over his brother's car.

The mini-van that was parked on the 600 block of Bayard Avenue in Wilmington was vandalized sometime in the early morning hours Wednesday. Swastikas and the words KKK and "Go back to Africa" were spray-painted in white.

The car owner's family says while this type of hate cannot be tolerated they just want to move on.

"Only thing that can stop it is we stand together as people, you know, rise above," Taylor said.
