CLINTON, Miss. (BP) — Tiki Broome, interim student pastor at First Baptist Church of Yazoo City, Miss., woke up Tuesday morning, June 2, to find a racial slur keyed into the side of his car.
Broome, who said he had been outspoken about racial injustice, had recently received some backlash via social media. But the defacement of his car, he told Jackson, Miss., television station WLBT, was another level.
The 25-year-old pastor told WLBT when he saw his car vandalized, with the n-word keyed into the side, he was initially angry.
But Broome determined that sharing the experience would help expose some of the hatred and sin in society and perhaps lead to further unification.
The incident, shared by Broome and his mother on Facebook, has garnered a significant amount of attention and has even led to offers from individuals and local business to help repair the vehicle, according to WLBT.
Many from the surrounding area have shared the post, expressing their support for Broome and their thankfulness that he has used the event as an avenue to share the Gospel.
