Denver Colorado: A 44 year old African American male, Vincent Broughton, was arrested Tuesday on charges of committing a biased motivated crime, disorderly conduct, harassment and littering. Police claim Broughton left racist messages outside a Colorado Springs church that is predominantly attended by African Americans. The signs have appeared on three consecutive Sundays outside New Covenant Church. One said “Black men be aware, you are the target.”
Broughton told KRDO-TV he posted the signs all around town because he wanted people to know how corrupt the police department, the city council and the people in the community are. He also claims he had a bad experience with city officials. He could not explain why he targeted churches.
What we don’t understand is how can you possibly get charged with racism against your own race?
