Homeowner says she got racist letter for showing support for Black Lives Matter

Officials in the town of Stoneham, Massachusetts, are "appalled" by the "gut-wrenching words" used in an anonymously typed letter allegedly placed in the mailbox of a resident who has lawn signs that support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Dr. Erin Tracy Bradley told ABC News affiliate WCVB that she received a letter this week that was littered with racist rhetoric and aggressive language and reported it to the police.

During the last two months since the police-involved death of George Floyd was seen on a bystander's cellphone video and posted on social media, protests have sparked and racial tensions have risen around the world.

The letter allegedly scolded Bradley for lowering "the value of your neighbor's property" by placing Black Lives Matter signs on her lawn and "embarrassing yourself and family in front of a good community."

There are three houses in my neighborhood where I've seen BLM signs FWIW.

1. Permanently angry, creepy

Cowardly, snake mean, and ready to be a dick about it.
