While in Washington, D.C., to attend President Obama’s inauguration, Metro Atlanta resident Pamela Graff received a disturbing phone call that her house had been set on fire, which has now been ruled as arson, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. She cancelled her plans and returned home to find her house completely burned down and racially derogatory graffiti painted on a nearby fence. Graf, a White woman, had received prior written complaints for her support of President Obama and displaying two signs in her yard. Federal ATF investigators are assisting in the investigation.-—CJ
