I'm really beginning to hate where I live

A group of -animals- people dressed in KKK outfits deemed it appropriate to paint "White Lives Matter" on the main field/football pitch in our local park this morning.

The majority reaction to this on the main town facebook page was in support of the defacement.

Aibu to ask where to begin in combating this?

I’d leave 🤷🏻‍♀️. Life is too short to be surrounded by dick heads.

Sweet Jesus
Where do you live ? Roughly ... ?

You could In a few days post , and explore
If anyone wants to be
Part of a local anti racism discussion

And if no one replies ..... is moving an option ?

What’s the point in moving? Beneath many so-called ‘nice’ people lie racist thoughts. Don’t care where you love, you’re going to find racists.

Sadly, moving is not an option. Midlands based, and most of the towns in the area seem to have similar viewpoints.

They're all out there.....could I ask vaguely where you live?is it far eastern Essex by any chance?

How awful.

Oh midlands ok....
I don't honestly think anywhere outside of the cities is that different tbh. You only have to scratch the surface...

Christ on a bike! That's horrific. I'm surprised it's not on the news. Yanbu to want to leave.

YANBU to hate it

When it hits the news (and it will, due to them being dressed in KKK outfits), it's going to be even more embarrassing for the locals.

But there is racism everywhere, although it's often not as public as that.

Borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth doesn't surprise me sadly - live around there for a while.

I grew up further south in Midlands and would be surpised if it had been there or surrounding area or in the midland cities I've lived and worked in.

I'd move as soon as possible. Life is too short.

Take off and nuke it from orbit

That’s truly vile, how awful
