A popular hair salon in Elk Grove, Calif., has now become the center of a hate crime investigation after a threatening, racist note was left on the front door of the establishment.
“You fucking blacks cause too much damage. Your [sic] a fucking eyesore to this town! Get out soon,” read the note, which was left at Dream Girls Fine Hair Imports and Salon.
Sharie Thompson, the owner, told CBS 13 that there have been verbal threats before, but not actual hate mail. Nonetheless, she is unruffled, saying that neither she nor her business is planning on going anywhere anytime soon.
Thompson and her business have been on that particular block in Elk Grove for more than 12 years, and she still can’t believe that someone would target her salon that way. Detectives, thankfully, are taking the note seriously and investigating the incident as a hate crime.
