A black nurse has shared a heartbreaking message on her front door revealing years of racial harassment by her neighbors.
Jennifer, a single mother, wrote that a blow torch had been taken to her home, feces thrown at her property and that her neighbors had threatened to ‘erase’ her.
She said that this has been the case since she purchased the home in New York and that she has even won a $5,000 judgement from a video she took of the abuse.
‘They are now planting dead squirrels on my property and have told me to go back to where I come from.’ Jennifer wrote.

‘They have their friend come spit on my property and it was recorded. A blow torch was taken to my home at 3am,’ she continued.
Jennifer said the neighbors had even threatened to ‘erase’ her and get rid of her and her camera.
‘They walk around in the back with guns and it was recorded. The police had said I need to be harmed for them to make an arrest.
‘I live in fear for my life at home. You will hear prayers coming from my home. I apologize for the noise. Thank you.’
A fundraising website has been set up for Jennifer to help her get a new security camera installed.
The page reads, ‘Please help raise for a security system on behalf of Jennifer and her daughter, Immaculate. They have been a victim of harassment by her neighbor.

‘Said neighbors have called the village to complain about numerous ‘violations’ on her property that have cost her thousands.
A protest, called ‘I stand with Jennifer’, is due to take place in front of Jennifer’s home on July 16 at 6pm
‘With this being said she has not been able to afford a proper security system to protect her and her daughter. Any donations would be gratefully appreciated. Please follow @standwithjennifer for any updates and protest to follow.’

Jennifer spoke alongside several other activists outside of her home, sharing a video on the Instagram page of her talking to various people about what she has experienced.
The mother said she was pregnant when she first moved to the home and she asked the neighbours to give her some time to fix the property, which was not in good shape.
However, Jennifer said her neighbors kept complaining because they wanted her to cut down the trees on her property, and fix the windows.
She later did so and put up a fence in the garden, resulting in the neighbors calling the police on her because they did not want a fence put up.
Jennifer was forced to go to court just one month after giving birth to her child and said the court ‘took pity’ on her.
Jennifer has also received support from a black motorcycle club called Triple X MC

She added that the same neighbors had also harassed the previous tenant of the property and forced her to leave.
She also said that despite her reporting the neighbors throwing human and dog feces into her garden, police officers told her it was ‘not a violent crime’ so they could not do anything about it.
An image shared on Twitter shortly after Jennifer’s post was shared showed a man watching over her home in an effort to protect her and her daughter.
