An interracial couple is being fined $100 a day for refusing to remove racist graffiti that was spray-painted on their Stamford, Connecticut home over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. Heather Lindsay, who is white, told the New York Post that she and her husband Lexene Charles, who's black, won't remove the n-word that was painted on their garage door until police, quote, "do their job" and "not just cover it up and sweep it under the table as they have done in the past." Lindsay told the Post that at least three neighbors have shouted the n-word at her husband and that their home has been vandalized several time before, saying, "That's why we're leaving it up. Because I've had it." Stamford officials say that incident is still being investigated, but they have so far not found any witnesses. The police chief said that the couple, who are being fined for blight for leaving the graffiti up, turned down their offer to remove it for free.
