Vulgar, Racist Words Carved Into NW OKC Street

OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City says they will address racist vandalism targeting African Americans, Hispanics and Jews.

The vandalism was discovered earlier this week. It had been carved into a 20-yard stretch of Morton Avenue in Northwest Oklahoma City.

The city replaced that stretch of road two years ago. The vandals committed the crime by using a stick or some other tool to write in the concrete while it was still wet.

Marcus Ude of Universal Development Enterprise is a home builder and remodeler who has been working on a home right next to the racist vandalism.

“I think that is absolutely amazing that we’ve got a municipality that will rally behind us when something like this has taken place,” he said. 

City Spokesperson Kristy Yager told News 9 city crews will decide Friday whether they can patch the road again, or if they’ll have to replace it.

“We’re going to take care of this,” said Yager.
