Members of the Grosse Pointe Park community raised their voices Sunday to condemn racism after a Black woman’s neighbor hung a Ku Klux Klan flag..
The NAACP’s Grosse Pointes and Harper Woods chapter and a community-based organization, WE GP, organized a rally to support Je Donna Dinges, whose next-door neighbor put up the flag facing her house.
Dinges, 57, has lived in Grosse Pointe Park for 11 years, has had issues with the neighbor the whole time, and, became aware of the flag on Feb. 15 when her ex-husband took out the trash and noticed it placed in the neighbor’s window, she said.
After getting little to no help from police, Dinges decided to get the media involved to bring light to her situation, she said.
Subsequently, Grosse Pointe Park’s Department of Public Safety sent two detectives to visit Dinges’ neighbor, who told him to take down the flag, and she later had a conference call with city officials where she expressed dissatisfaction with police response, she said.
