PULASKI COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A central Arkansas man is upset after vandals spray painted racial slurs onto his car.

Reshod Johnson said the vandalism happened last week in Jacksonville.

“It’s almost as if I felt…what it was like to live back in the Civil Rights time,” Johnson told KARK-TV.

Johnson, a veteran, told KARK-TV the vandals spray painted his car inside and out and rolled it into a ditch.

He believes he was targeted because he is in a biracial relationship and has a biracial son.
