Ronald and Malissia Clinton live in a lovely community outside Los Angeles, and last week someone firebombed their home in what the couple believes was a racially motivated hate crime.

“I don’t have proof, I don’t have any type of motive, but I do have a gut,” Ronald Clinton, who works as a pharmacist, told My Fox LA. “And I tell you—my gut tells me this was racially motivated. And it was somebody that had the intent to harm, injure or even kill us.

“I just know there is no other reason to target us,” he told the Daily Breeze. “We have no enemies. Why us?”

According to My Fox LA, around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, someone took a gasoline-filled tire, leaned it against the front door of the Clintons’ home in the Los Angeles suburb of Manhattan Beach and then lit the tire on fire. Ronald Clinton told the news station that he was asleep during the attack but was awakened after hearing two loud explosions. His wife, a corporate lawyer, was out of town when the attack occurred.
