A dumpster in the 37th and Elkhart area was defaced with a racial slur aimed at a black family following an argument over who could use it.

The homeowner, who is black, said in a Facebook post that a neighbor wrote the racial slur on the dumpster after previously cursing out his children for using it. The homeowner also said Lubbock Police were called and no action was taken.

"Use your own n****r" was written on the dumpster, along with a swasktika.

Later, some people painted over the racist graffiti.
