An Indiana woman was shocked and frightened when on July 20 she woke up to find her shed and SUV vandalized with racial slurs (video below).
Mia Frias-Russell shot a video of the vandalism and uploaded it to Facebook, where it has been viewed more than 6 million times.
In the video, a clearly shaken Frias-Russell speaks to the camera before walking over to her shed and focusing on the deeply offensive words written in what appears to be black spray paint.
The N-word is scrawled onto three sides of the shed.
"That's my house," Frias-Russell says, indicating the distance between the shed and her home.
She then moves over to her SUV, onto which the same racial slur had been spray-painted. "B----" is also written across the hood. Moreover, it looks like the vandal poured sugar into her gas tank.
"I'm scared," she says, fighting back tears. "I don't have any friends out here. I don't know who could've done this. Just yesterday, I almost got ran off the road."
Brandi Dimas, a friend of Frias-Russell, launched a GoFundMe campaign so Frias-Russell can have enough money to fix her car and move to a new town.
"Mia took her very little savings trying to repair her vehicle [but received] bad news that it's beyond repair," the GoFundMe page reads. "We as a community ... need to stand up for her. I don't believe there is a difference in one person to another because of skin color, we need this to stop."
As of July 27, 104 people had donated a total of $3,056, exceeding Dimas' $3,000 goal.
"I'm so happy that people are taking the time to listen to her story," Dimas told The Daily Pot, according to KRIV. "Right now Mia is overwhelmed with emotions, good and bad. It's unreal all the racism that is still around. It's very sad and hurts my heart to know some people are full of hate without knowledge."
