The n-word was spray painted on the side of a limo in Northeast Philadelphia, NBC 10 reports[1]. The station reports the limo driver, who lives in the Holmesburg section of the city, found a note filled with racial slurs on Wednesday as well.

Residents tell the station they’re outraged and they don’t believe there has been any trouble in the neighborhood before. Holmesburg has been home to a large black community since the 1700s[2].
