So sad this is still happening:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

For months, Lois and Mitchell Fuchs put up with the hate mail flooding their mailbox -- slurs aimed at her because she's black and at him because he's Jewish. Then came a typed note, bearing the words, "Where's Hitler when you need him?"

...snip...

Lynne Niebuhr, who lives across the street, said she was upset over the unkempt condition of their house. "That's the only thing I had against them -- just clean your house," she said, adding that it was never about race, as far as she knew.

"We had lovely Negro, um, African-American neighbors to the left and right," said Niebuhr, who is not suspected of sending the mailings. "I think all that was blown out of proportion."
