DERRY, N.H. (AP) - Police are investigating what they call a racially motivated crime targeting a Derry family.

Jaci Stimson said she’s lived at her home for five years and has never had a problem until Oct. 21, when she found a racial slur etched onto her car.

“It said the ‘N-word lover,’” Stimson told WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/2f4b63T).

Stimson, who has a 7-year-old biracial son, said the same word was written onto a sign and then put in her driveway.

“That (sign) basically told me to go home (and used a) racial slur,” she said. “My son is black, and it’s racist.”

More damage was discovered Wednesday. Stimson said her car was egged and that watermelon and fried chicken were thrown onto her car. “So again, it’s racist,” she said.

Police are asking the public for help.

Lt. David Michaud of the Derry Police Department says because of the comments in some of the incidents, the acts are considered a racially motivated crime.
