African American woman set on fire by KKK in LouisianaOctober 23, 2012
A 20-year-old African American woman told police she was set on fire by three men who wrote the initials KKK and a racial slur on her car in northeastern Louisiana.
Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Lt. Julie Lewis says Sharmeka Moffitt was found with burns on 60 per cent of her body when police responded to her 911 call on Sunday night.
Moffitt was taken to LSU Medical Center in Shreveport, where she remained in critical condition on Monday afternoon.
Moffitt told police the men doused her in a flammable liquid and set her on fire while she walked through the Civitan Park around 8pm. 
She extinguished the fire using water from a spigot before a police officer arrived.
Lewis said the FBI is investigating the attack as a possible hate crime, but that no arrests had been made as of late Monday.
Authorities say Moffitt was attacked and burned by three men wearing white hoodies while she was on the walking trail at the park.
Though the attackers apparently wrote the letters ‘KKK’ on Moffitt’s vehicle, police said she was unable to determine whether the men were black or white.
Local law enforcement said they were shocked at the attack at the otherwise serene park. 
Winnsboro Police Chief Lester Thomas said he was ‘devastated’ by the incident.
Franklin Parish Sheriff Kevin Cobb called it ‘a horrific event.’
‘We will follow the facts and seek justice,’ he said. 
The victim’s family set up a Facebook page, Prayers for Sharmeka Moffitt and soliciting prayers for the 20-year-old.

And somehow we are still led to believe we are in a post-racial era?

Update: Moffitt is in critical condition & has suffered extensive burns on her neck, back & all the way down to her calves. She is at the LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport. We will continue to post updates as they happen.
