Racist graffiti found in Queens on Thanksgiving morning

A hateful vandal scrawled “F–K WHITE PEOPLE” in front of a Queens home and defaced nearby trees and fences with other profane messages, police said Friday.

The spray-painted graffiti, written in black and underlined with red, was discovered on the sidewalk in front of a home on 151st Avenue near 81st Street in the neighborhood of Lindenwood on Thanksgiving morning, cops said.

Found on nearby trees were spray-painted messages reading “F–K WHITE,” and simply, “F–K,” police and witnesses told The Post.

The messages were discovered at around 4 a.m. and reported to police at around 10 a.m., according to authorities.

Nearby fences were also found defaced with graffiti that read: “I NEED P—Y ASAP,” and “ONE DAY I WILL COME BACK TO THIS AND SEE HOW SUCCESSFUL I AM!”

“It’s not safe. We’re afraid,” said Lina Bachour, 38, who lives at the home where the “F–K WHITE PEOPLE” graffiti was scrawled in front of.

It was not yet clear if Bachour or anyone else was specifically targeted.

Another neighbor, Barry Rachnowitz, 70, said that his part of his fence was spray-painted in red graffiti.

“This is horrible,” he said. “There are no words to share my disgust right now. It is definitely a hate-crime, especially what they wrote on the [sidewalk].”

Rachowitz added: “I can’t understand how someone can have so much hate in their heart towards a stranger … Hopefully the person will be caught and punished.”

Resident Anthony Carecchia, 20, said the vandalism was “very surprising to see.”

“You don’t expect something like this in this neighborhood,” he said, noting, “It’s a pretty diverse neighborhood, so I’m really surprised.”

On Friday, PJ Marcel, along with another resident worked to scrub the paint off the fences.

“It’s horrendous that something of this caliber would be posted on a fence on a holiday,” said Marcel. “It’s such a tight-knit community and to have somebody vandalize someone’s personal property, especially with these hate messages is disgusting.”

No arrests have been made in connection to the incidents.

The vandalism occurred roughly a mile away from Howard Beach, where in 1986, a trio of bat-wielding white teens chased black construction worker Michael Griffith onto a highway, where he was struck and killed by car, inflaming racial tensions across the Big Apple.
