*Just after midnight on Wednesday, the son of a Black couple in Little Elm, TX woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, looked out the window and noticed two of the family’s cars on fire.

Jayla Gipson and Charles Crawford had no idea why their shared a photo of their 2020 Nissan Optima and 2020 Kia Forte were in flames, but when the smoke cleared, the pair noticed the phrase “Trump 20” spray-painted on their garage door. Suddenly, the possibility of an “accident” started to fade away.

Last Wednesday, Jayla Gipson and her family woke up and found both their cars on fire. They also found ‘Trump 20’ spray-painted on their garage.

The couple’s “Black Lives Matter” yard sign that they had put up around Thanksgiving was also vandalized with the same color spray paint that was used to deface the garage.

Gipson said that she found her ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign also vandalized.

“That sign was in my yard for less than two weeks and then all of a sudden we get a tragedy like this,” Gipson told WFAA. “I would have preferred they just take the sign. But to set the house on fire? That’s going way too far.”

Crawford told WFAA that the community and fellow neighbors have shown support: “One neighbor bought us a camera system that I installed and another bought paint for us to paint over the “Trump 20′ left behind. We’re very grateful to them.”

  1. There was never any hesitation to do this to Trump supporters, and sometimes worse. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. This is what happens when you allow some groups to get away with attacking people over politics, it will eventually come back upon you.
