Aurora, Colorado — Rev. Oshine Winter moved to Colorado within a year and joined the ministry. Now he has to explain to his young daughters why the racist message was spray-painted on the doors of his garage.

“This happened on Saturday night when I returned from church,” Winter said.

The vandalism photo showed an N-word spray painted on a winter garage door. The word “BOP” was also sprayed on top of the N word.

“I think the message shows that we aren’t welcome, and it’s a terrifying reminder of our past,” Winter said.

The minister said he read the word “BOP” online.

The garage is in his apartment in the East Applewood Circle of Aurora.

“Well, it’s hard not to believe this is aimed at me, especially the fact that I’m the only African-American to have a garage in this block,” Winter said. “N-word is especially placed in my garage.”

Aurora police said they were investigating the case as a “prejudice-motivated” crime. Currently, there are no suspects in the police.
