D’Anthony White, 30, uploaded a picture of the note to Facebook. It included the N-word and said, “The only thing hadicap [handicap] on you is your brain you lazy n******.” FOX 5 has blurred the N-word from the note.
White is legally blind, but he does not typically use a cane or wear glasses. He said the note was left even though he displayed his parking placard.
“My initial reaction was, ‘You don’t know if I have a disability or not. All disabilities are not visible,’ ” said White. “Just because you can’t see my disability, don’t make the assumption I don’t have one.”
In a post on his Facebook page, White explained how Sunday’s incident was not the first time he has encountered problems because of his disability.
“I try not to let any of the ignorance bother me too much – then they’ve won,” White said.
