Kenneth Walker’s New York home was set on fire after he received a racist letter that referred to him as the ‘N’ word. The 28-year-old volunteer firefighter in North Tonawanda, says he received a letter saying ‘N*ggers cant be firefighters.’ They also told him to resign or he will regret it.

Walker is actually the only black fireman on that squad. He says,

“Resigning from the fire department would obviously please them, and I don’t want to please them. At the same time I am going to do what I have to do to protect my family. I am still going to live my life.”

The FBI is currently looking into this horrible incident. North Tonawanda Mayor Arthur Pappas states,

“We’re totally disgusted that anyone would continue to do this. Whoever is responsible is certainly doing something that’s very distasteful and hateful.”
