Henry King’s week started with a racial slur spray painted on his truck. 

Thursday, his South Buffalo neighbors said they won't stand for hate crimes. A couple of dozen people gathered at Cazenovia Park to rally against the hatred. 

“We didn't want to be whispering about what's going on. We wanted to take a stand against it and make it clear that we're not going to tolerate that,” said Liz Smith-Rossiter.

King was given a South Buffalo hat and shirt to make sure he knows he's home.

“I'm at home,” said King.
