HATE HOAX: Biracial Massachusetts Family Spray-painted Hateful Graffiti on Their Own Home
Another fake hate crime.
Unfortunately, the local Lunenburg, Massachusetts football team was blamed for the crime and their season was cancelled.
That was before police found out the home’s owner, a biracial couple, spray-painted the hateful “n*gger” message on their own home.

The story made headlines nationally – even ESPN ran the story.
The Sentinel Enterprise reported on the latest development:
Police on Tuesday afternoon visited the home of the family of an eighth-grade Lunenburg High School football player that reported racist graffiti on their home Nov. 15.
After spending an hour inside the home, they emerged with a large brown paper bag with items in it and left the property.
An NECN reporter tweeted that officers were holding papers and wearing latex gloves as they approached the home.
Anthony Phillips, the father of Lunenburg player Isaac Phillips, went in and out of the house a few times while police were inside.
Police emerged moments later carrying a paper bag, placing it in the trunk of an unmarked cruiser before leaving.
Phillips and his wife, Andrea Brazier, declined comment after police left.
“You can camp out here all day, but I’m not commenting,” Phillips told a gathering of at least a dozen media at the end of his driveway.
Reached by cellphone, Brazier said she was unable to comment but would call back if and when she can comment.
Phillips returned to the end of his driveway to wait for his children to get off the school bus. Asked about rumors that he might have been involved in the incident, Phillips replied, “That just shows you how racist this town is.”
On Nov. 15, Phillips and Brazier, the parents of Isaac Phillips, reported finding a racial slur spray-painted on their house. Isaac, 13, is biracial, and the message said “Knights don’t need n******.”
Lunenburg High School’s football game was canceled that night, and a few days later School Superintendent Loxi Jo Calmes said Lunenburg would forfeit all remaining games for the season.
