- An Avondale man says he was the target of a racist message, and he says it's not the first time

The man says he first learned his home had been vandalized when his wife left for work. When she came back into the house and called for him to "come out quick" he knew something was terribly wrong.

As an activist Kim Baker says, this isn't the first time his house has been vandalized, but that doesn't make the words sting any less.

"If this is an intimidation attempt, we will not be intimidated, I don't like it, my wife doesn't like it, friends of ours who are here in support don't like it," said Kim Baker.

With an ongoing police investigation and the FBI involved, Kim believes this mentality is larger than writing on a garage door.

"Injustice tolerated anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," said Baker.

Baker says even though he doesn't know who left him the message, he has one of his own.

"Whoever is doing this, whatever your issues are, you know they need to get some help. They need to talk to someone if it's not a family member, a church pastor or leader, a psychologist, or somebody. They need to talk to somebody, if it's nothing else but the bus driver because this 50's and 60's mentality will not be tolerated," said Baker.

Baker says Avondale Police came out to his house and took pictures of the damage. He says the next step after finding whoever is responsible is to press charges.
