Metro Pastor Says Twitter Post Led to Hate Crime

| July 31, 2009

KANSAS CITY, MO – A metro pastor says that his church was the target of a hate crime which he says came in response to a message he posted on Twitter.

Pastor Devan Taylor of the Beyond Four Walls Church says that somebody spray-painted racial slurs urging him to get out of town after he expressed his opinion on the controversial arrest of Harvard professor Louis Gates in Twitter's Black in America forum.

One of Pastor Taylor's Twitter posts: "Crowley invokes the power of the badge on private property proved to be owned by black professor i guess black men cant holler on they land"
