ALLEN PARK (WWJ) A road work sign that normally carries messages about construction projects or lane closures was plastered with a hateful message in the overnight hours.
State police said an unauthorized person took over the sign along westbound I-94 near Livernois before the Southfield interchange.
The message in lights made a reference to Trayvon Martin, the teen killed by a neighborhood watchman in Florida, and included a racial slur.
Michigan Department of Transportation spokesman Rob Morosi said that at around 1 a.m. Monday someone was able to get into the box attached to the portable sign and pull out the keyboard.
He said that whomever is responsible knew what they were doing.
These signs, obviously, are in cabinets which someone has to break into. And then they have to be knowledgeable as to how to erase the message thats on there, create a new message and activate it, Morosi said.
Morosi said they sent a crew out to the scene to address the issue as soon as they learned of it. The sign is now back on message, warning drivers about a construction project ahead.
The WWJ newsroom had been receiving multiple calls about the message.
Area resident Ken Furgama of Melvindale wasnt happy to hear about it.
Id just hope it was an isolated train of thought, you know, but I do believe there are a lot of ignorant people still out there, he told WWJs Ron Dewey. Im just sorry it happened.
Reverend Wendell Anthony, of the Detroit Office of the NAACP, said it didnt surprise him.
We know that weve got some foolish people in all communities, in all races, in all ethnicities. But it is up to us who are wiser, who know better, to stand up, speak out, call it out, and lets try to fix it as long as were able, Anthony said. So, I am not discouraged. I am still very much encouraged.
MDOT is investigating with the help of Michigan State Police. Morosi said that whoever is responsible could face some pretty serious charges.
A sign planted by a low level dem operative or just some leftist POS most likely.
Trayvon is a nagger?
I was driving thru South Carolina one night and one of these signs was flashing:
In reference to the SC Gamecocks I’m sure :-)

See the very top of the Executive Branch and the defacto national black “leaders”, for racist ignorance.
What would be the response if the sign said “George Zimmerman is a wetback”? It should be the same as this sign was.
A black politician in an Atlanta suburb was finally outed as being the one responsible for defacing his office’s sign with racial epithets after a townhall meeting about Obama”care”...”Atlanta Mike” might remember who it was.
I had it bookmarked, but that computer crashed a while back, and I’ve lost the link.
And where exactly was Laz last night? Hmmmm?
One hundred and eleventy billion dollars that it was a dem
I will view with the utmost suspicions any provocative signs, graffiti, anonymously posted flyers, etc. There are people who there who are seriously pushing a race war. They are not doing it for reasons of racial justice. I refuse to be drawn in.
Odds are 9:1
Der Führer Obama should go for it
Bring Iman Wright along with you
I’m sorry but any time someone hacks one of those signs to put something that’s really not pc I have to smile. Doesn’t even matter who it’s aimed at. I’m a bad person.
Folks, look a the structure of the fragment sentence.
“Trayvon a n.....”
“You a b (female canine)”
Now, who speaks like that?
Democrat agent provocateurs at work is what I suspect.
