White Mom Claims Son Accused of Racist Graffiti Isn’t Racist Because of His Black Girlfriend
A Virginia mom is defending her racist son… because he has a black girlfriend.
18-year-old Taylor Ferrell was arrested Friday (Dec. 30) after allegedly spray painting “white power” graffiti, swastikas, and other racist content at a local little league park.
According to Raw Story:
Ferrell was arrested and charged with three counts of intentionally damaging a property or monument. He admitted to the crime, but denies writing any of the racist content.
His mother, Sarah Maxey agrees. She tells CBS 6 (WTVR-TV):
Is this a variation of the “I have black friends” defense? I hope Maxey realizes that even people in interracial relationships can still hold racist beliefs or commit racist-based crimes.
Police are investigating the other suspects, while Ferrell in being held in jail without bond. The damage to little league park was estimated around $5,500-$6,000.
