Someone in North Carolina seems to be very protective of his or her candy this year and will only give it out to the young and light-skinned.
According to NewsChannel3 in North Carolina on Wednesday, one anonymous person posted a warning to the neighborhood of Larchmont-Edgewater regarding children out on Halloween night.
The post was titled “Reminder: Overage Trick Or Treaters Stay Out!” and appeared in the Rants and Raves section of the classifieds website.
Greedy teenagers in the area got on their last nerve and they had to let the world know.
It started out with a cranky plea for kids under 12 to stay away and buy their own stinking candy.
We hate seeing kids older than twelve going house to house for free candy. Doing so is illegal and this year we will be calling the police on you b-stards. Overage trick or treating is a Class 4 misdemeanor and carries a $250 fine. This will also go on your criminal record if you don’t have one already.
But it seemed the age of the little monsters was not the only thing that bugged this holiday hater.
And you n–lets, stay the hell out! We’re a white neighborhood and we don’t want you baboons here!!
This added section put a whole new spin on the rule-bound homeowner. Not only do they hate teenagers, they seem to hate everyone who is different in any way.
So this person’s rotten attitude probably means rotten candy according to other residents of the predominantly Caucasian neighborhood.
Timo Mitchell told the TV station that the post did not reflect the rest of the resident’s feelings.
“I can understand if you have a 16 or 17-year-old show up without a costume, but just a blanket statement to say all kids of different colors can’t come in,” Mitchell said
While it seems that not everyone in the neighborhood agrees, there were some other users on the website who were just as insensitive.
“That’s ok. I’ll just give the little n-glets the rotten stale candy to teach them a lesson. Stay in your own neighborhoods,” another post said. The post featured a picture of an African American woman in a very revealing outfit and included other derogatory terms such as “blackies”.
The Norfolk Police agreed that a fine would go to parents of children older than 12 reported out looking for goodies, but skin color is irrelevant.
“You can`t discriminate against someone being in a particular neighborhood, the law doesn’t address that,” spokesman Chris Amos told the North Carolina station.
