CHILDERSBURG, AL (WBRC) -
A family is upset after they say a racist sign was put in their front yard to scare their biracial children. Denise Schenck found the sign Saturday morning outside her home on Thomas Lane in Childersburg.
"Oh I was devastated," said Schenck, "It was such a racial thing. I was devastated. I had never seen anything like it. I didn't even know what it meant."
The sign had derogatory comments like "the brotherhood lives" and "do yourself a favor and go back to Africa."
Schenck believes the sign was targeting her daughter, Christy Brackett, and Brackett's bi-racial children. When Brackett saw the sign, she immediately called police.
Police arrested James "Frank" Trucks who lives two doors down from Schenck. He's charged with harassment and menacing, but says he did not do it.
"I'm angry to say the least," said Trucks.
When asked if he was wrongly accused of something he didn't do Trucks said, "I most certainly do. I don't feel I can pass gas in my own yard without somebody signing a warrant."
Trucks also claims he is not a racist.
"I got friends of color. A racist ain't gonna hang out with people he hates," said Trucks.
But the Bracketts say Trucks is a racist and they're disappointed racism still exists today.
"You walk about and think it's 2012 things have changed yeah, some things have but not everything," said Brackett, "They don't realize how they're hurting people. They have feelings and I don't understand how you could hurt a child - these are kids they're threatening."
