BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - The message, plastered on the side of a Walter Street home, tells a family of six to move out of the neighborhood and includes a racial slur.

Holly Pierce, a mother of five, found the graffiti on the side of home this afternoon after she returned home from work to walk her dog.

"They tell us all the time to get out of their neighborhood. They don't want us in their neighborhood," she said.

A racial slur, the N-word, is written on the home two times in white spray paint.

Pierce is white and said her five children are of mixed race.

"They're not threatening me," Pierce said. "They're threatening little kids."

Buffalo police are investigating the case.
