RANCHO MURIETA (CBS13) — Inside the pages of the small, weekly Rancho Murieta newspaper the River Valley Times, the sentence generating big backlash is an opinion piece written in response to the police shooting of Stephon Clark.

It reads, “police have to be careful not to overact and you black men might be better off at home after a certain hour.”

The line is drawing a swift reaction.

Marcia Courson is the woman who wrote the controversial column. While she did not respond to requests for comment, her publisher, Dave Herburger, said in a phone interview: “We don’t condone the notion of a minority curfew.”

The Sacramento Bee reports that according to the latest census data, 89 percent of residents who live in Rancho Murieta are white, while one percent are black.

Some examples of the social media outrage may be read below.
