Donell McBride, an African-American man who lives on Orange Street, walked out of his home Oct. 11 and saw the racial slur on his neighbor's home

ABILENE, Texas - An Abilene man told KTXS Thursday he fears for his life after someone spray-painted a racial slur on his neighbor's house across the street.

Donell McBride, a black man who lives on Orange Street, walked out of his home Wednesday morning and saw "All you [N-words] must die," along with a swastika, to the right of his neighbor's front door.

"If I had the money to move I would ... because I'm scared for my life," McBride said.

According to his son-in-law, Torris Shaw, McBride called the neighbor, who claimed his brother is responsible for the graffiti. Shaw said he has a hard time believing that's true.

"Why would you put something like this right across the street from some black people," Shaw said.

McBride, who reported the graffiti to police, said he's so mad, hurt and scared that he couldn't sleep last night.

Abilene police told KTXS "it'll take some time for detectives to look into and investigate."

McBride asked anyone who reads this story or sees the graffiti to "pray for the folks who did that. Pray for them because they need help."
