Kenya Robinson, an Islamic supremacist hijab-wearing black Muslim, said she already felt like an outsider when she moved to Mount Holly recently, from Penns Grove in Salem County. But the 24-year-old was shocked when just two weeks after moving to the apartment in Burlington County with her two young sons, she found the air had gone out of her car’s tire. Next to the wheel was a note that called her a terrorist, used a racial slur and said she should “go home” because she was “not wanted here.
NJ.com Robinson said that although the note included the n-word, she believes she was targeted mostly because she wears a hijab and other clothing that makes it obvious that she is Muslim. She said she never had anything like this happen before, and now she feels that people in the area are looking at her differently because of her attire. (As well they should be wary of potential terrorists)
Still, she said she can’t believe that in 2018, some people still call any Muslim person a terrorist. Mount Holly Police Capt. Rich Spitler said officers determined that someone had let the air out of the tire, and they refilled it for Robinson.
In a self-indulgent, ‘pity me’ 12-minute video she posted on Facebook of her talking with police, she told them that she kept to herself and doesn’t know anyone. Police took the note, she said, and assured her they’d do extra patrols in the area.
But later that night, around midnight, someone started banging on a door at the apartment complex. Robinson said she believed it was her door, but Spitler said it was a communal, external door to the apartment building. Robinson said the banging had her children “screaming and hollering” in fear. It stopped after about 10 minutes, when she yelled that she had called the cops.
She said she doesn’t want to “let anyone run me from my home,” but the experience does make her want to leave Mount Holly.
