Pen Letter To Family: This Neighborhood Needs No Blacks

“This neighborhood doesn’t need any blacks,” the note read

A biracial family in Wichita, Kansas, was astonished when they got a mysterious letter from their neighbors who said the family was bringing disrespect to the neighborhood because they had black kids.

“We have noticed there are some black children at your residence,” the letter read. “Maybe you are running a daycare or these are your children. In either case, we have put our house for sale. This neighborhood does not need any blacks in it.”

“There is a reason for saying the other side of the tracks. That is where these people belong. You have done a great disrespect in this neighborhood by not thinking of your neighbors,” the racist neighbors added.


The family was stunned by the note and Nancy Wirths, the kids’ grandmother, hasn’t let the kids out of the house until they find out the person who sent the letter. “These are kids under the age of 10 where I and their parents are trying to raise them, you have to love everybody, be friends with everybody, It doesn’t matter if they’re brown, purple,” Wirths said.

This shows that racism extends to everyone, even kids that come from a biracial family. That’s absolutely horrible to see. The neighbors who wrote that letter should be really ashamed of themselves. We hope the perpetrators are caught and face disorderly conduct charges. If this family lived in a Black community, I bet they wouldn’t have experienced such a thing, because people there are not accustomed to judging people by the color of their skin.
