‘It was just so horrifying’: Black store owner in Redmond says man dropped off a KKK Robe
REDMOND, Wash. — An owner of a new consignment shop is still shaken after a man dropped off a bag of dresses at her store that also contained a KKK hood and robe.
Leona Coakley-Spring opened Rags to Riches Consignment in Redmond a couple of months ago. This week, she says a man came into her store and left a KKK robe. She believes this robe is a threat as a black business owner.
“I didn’t know what to do or what to say,” Coakley-Spring said Thursday night. “It was just so horrifying.”
