Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - A homeowner in the Schnitzelburg area said she found offensive graffiti of racist remarks a few days ago. She said this is not something she stands for. Outraged, she immediately got in touch with a few local government representatives and arranged a press conference.

The homeowner discovered anti-semitic graffiti on her white picket fence. It depicts a pentagram with a triple six and also the phrase ‘white power.’

On August 1, a few community leaders held a press conference to let the public know that these hateful acts would not be tolerated.

Democratic Representative Jim Wayne said, “We want to send a message to the community that this is an embracing neighborhood. This is a neighborhood of diversity, and for this type of graffiti to be posted in our community is an outrage.”

This community is now on high alert. People with information or tips are being asked to call the LMPD tip line at 574-LMPD.
