Anonymous ​Racist Stranger Writes Abusive Letter To Mum And Son

Anonymous ​Racist Stranger Writes Abusive Letter To Mum And Son

One confused mother from Solihull, Birmingham was shocked to receive a letter that called her a 'bucket fanny tramp' and her mixed-race son a 'half breed' from an anonymous sender.

Mum-of-three Gracy Jackson, 30, received the letter earlier this week. She doesn't know who the letter is from, but said she has reported it to the police.

And it's no wonder - the letter is absolutely toxic, questioning her Catholicism, insulting her 'shit hole' home and 'old banger' car, while also calling her child, James, a 'little shit' and 'little bastard'.

"I've no idea who has done this," Gracy said. "I had just come back from the school run and it had been posted through my door. It was in an envelope with my name on it.

Headteacher Writes Letter To Parents Warning Social Distancing Is Impossible In Schools

"At first I thought it was a birthday card for my youngest but obviously it wasn't. When I read it I was like 'wow'. I showed it to my mum straight away and she said I should phone the police.

"It's really vile. That's the only way I can describe it."

Of course, it's one thing to call someone out on the type of car they drive or the house they live in (that in itself is bad enough), but it's in an entirely different league when someone lays into another for their race - and even more so when they're talking about a child.

Gracy continued: "It refers to my son as a 'half breed' - my son is mixed race. It's a really horrible thing to say about someone, he's really upset about it. He shouldn't have to be exposed to language like that by an adult.

"It's the racism against James that has upset me the most, he's a kid. We live in a society where he shouldn't have to face that. We faced it years ago but we should be past it now. It's cowardly."

She added that her son was scared by the letter, and that she now has to pick him up from school so that he's not confronted by the anonymous writer.

"James is asking me 'what if they come back to our house?" Gracy added. "He's been scared by it. I stayed at my mum's house because I didn't want to stay at mine in case they came back.

"It's been going through his mind that they might come back with a knife or kitted up. James would walk home from school by himself but I'm going to pick him up now. I wouldn't want him to be confronted by an adult."
