Remember the DeLong family who covered homophobic graffiti scrawled on their garage door with a beautiful rainbow to show everyone they celebrate their bisexual daughters?
Well, here's another example that proves fighting ignorance with tolerance and a pinch of humor always returns the best results.
Last week, 32-year-old startup founder and investor Justin Kan tweeted an eye-opening post that featured a before-and-after photo of his garage door. The top slice of the image clearly shows a racist message spray-painted on Kan's property that read, "F*ck you gook!" (a derogatory term used to describe people of Asian descent).
But instead of getting angry, Kan decided to beat the haters to the punch with his creativity.
His Twitter post read: 'We painted over the garage [with] chalkboard so neighbors could express themselves in more positive (& temporary) ways ...'
Basically, Kan coated the garage door with a special type of paint that can turn any surface into a usable chalkboard. He dedicated it to spreading a positive message to the community and had it covered with inspiring quotes such as "Be the light you wish to see," "Live. Love. Laugh.," and others.
