On Sunday, a black North Carolina man was charged for allegedly using ethnic intimidation and setting fire to a grocery store owned by an immigrant – leaving behind a pro-Trump note threatening to torture the owner and signed “White America.”
Curtis Flournoy, 32, was arrested by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police after surveillance footage showed him breaking a window and throwing a flaming object inside the Central Market, a Nepali Indian store.
Flournoy is also accused of leaving behind the “White America” note. Police told a local CBS News affiliate, “A note was also left at the scene near the door that stated the suspect did not want any refugee business owners and that they would torture the owner if they did not leave and go back to where they came from. The suspect signed the letter ‘White America.'”
In his note, Flournoy wrote, “We need to get rid of Muslims, Indians and all immigrants. This is our warning. Leave the business and go back where you came from. If you don’t follow this warning then we are not responsible for the torture starting now. God Bless America … White America.”
He also called President Trump “our nation builder for white America.”
This is the seventh time Flournoy has been arrested in Mecklenburg County since 2014. Reports claim he has been charged with burning a building of trade, felony breaking and entering, using anonymous or threatening letters, causing malicious damage by use of an incendiary material, and using ethnic intimidation.
A GoFundMe page has been created for the store owner Kamal Dhimal, who told reporters the event has made him fear for his life.
