Sharmeka Moffitt, 20, is recovering today after three men burned and attacked her while writing the letters “KKK” on the hood of her car.
The attack happened Sunday evening at Civitan Park in Winnsboro, LA while she was walking in the park on a paved trail.
As reported by the Shreveport Times:
Moffitt called 911 about 8 p.m. and told police she was attacked and burned by three men wearing white T-shirt hoodies, authorities said during a news conference today.
Moffitt is believed to be severely burned and is being treated at LSU Hospital in Shreveport, where she’s listed in critical condition.
The FBI is investigating whether the attack was a hate crime, Winnsboro Police Chief Kevin Cobb said.
Authorities have not identified, nor made any arrests in the case as they haven’t determined the sequence of events or whether the attack was random or planned.
Many in the social media sphere reported that Moffitt was wearing an Obama t-shirt, but those allegations turned out to be false.
Police believe Moffitt was doused in a flammable liquid and set afire.
Trooper Albert Paxton said Moffitt, who is in critical condition, suffered extensive burns below her neck on her chest and back all the way down to her calves.Though Cobb admitted the possibility of the attack being racially motivated was unsettling, they asked for the community to reserve judgement.
On Sharmeka’s Facebook page, it says she works for ConAgra Foods, Inc., an American packaged foods company. Since the story broke, a Prayers for Sharmeka Moffitt page has been created with over 11,000 supporters.

Racism is still in every part of the world.It's sad that in a 21st century,what some block heads see is still colour and not the best in a person.

Biafra first leaders found the independence of Nigeria,is only in the tribe of Ndi Igbo you can find a self sacrifice mentality to compete for development in terms of civilization,all you can see at the corridor of Nigeria/Africa is corruption and mindless souls government imposing danger to the people their ought to protect,Nigeria is becoming inhabitable some of our Igbo bias brothers has sold out the uniqueness of what their are known of,we should stop blaming the western world for the arrogant and negative decision we bargain with them,EG.. Nigeria conspired with Britain and seceded Bakassi people only to oppress there brothers Biafra ....only what you can see in Nigeria now is hotel,banks,filling station everywhere diminishing the dream and visions of the youth, unemployment taken the masses to a deluded mentality.why won't they call Africans animal ? your resources is natural,huge amount of money generate from Nigeria everyday yet we are the poorest and dirtiest! The Igbo's where living CHIEFLY-wekipedia-at the eastern part before we got mixed up with adulterated tribes,i urge every Biafrans to shine up their light to enable the sun to rise in full dimension we only can save ourselves and retrench from this poisonous union call Nigeria,we have to prove our Immortality to the world and Nigeria/Africa.Note= if we gain Biafra now mind you that is going to be double blessing, dual citizenship,multiple opportunity and many more...Thank you all Igbo Ndi Oma.
