“A white man sprayed a racial remarks on my grandmom’s house last night in South Philly referencing white privilege. The crazy part is this was a all Black neighborhood 20 years ago. It was gentrified and now this. Just don’t let us catch you, coward … The funny part is we just bought this house. After it’s remodeled more Blacks coming soon.” wrote Meek

“Can we zoom in on this terrorist? What he did is a hate crime, terrorism, vandalism, threatening personal safety, trespassing and maybe a few other crimes. Find him and press charges.” tweeted someone
"Wow will it ever stop... what are they mad for our people were the slaves not theirs. I just don’t get it" commented one Instagram user.
