Family with NY license plates harassed - Seven Days

Was the harassment race-based? The vic was an African-American man and the perp a white man. Or was it state-based, because he was driving a car with NY plates? Either way Gov. Scott has apologized on behalf of the State of Vermont.

"The family is from New York City and owns a second home in Hartford, Vermont Public Radio reported later Wednesday. In a press release about the incident, Vermont State Police said the man, who is black, and his 11-year-old son were driving near their house last Friday when two vehicles flagged them down. A white man then told the victim "that he was not wanted in Vermont and told to leave," police said. "There were significant racial undertones to the interaction." At the press conference Wednesday, Scott said the man also told the victim that "the governor" didn't want him in Vermont, either."
