"An Act of Hate Toward an African American Family in Manhattan Beach Brings History Full Circle"
By Karen Jordan. Malissia Clinton was on a business trip in 2015 when she received a disturbing call from her husband, Ronald. Someone had thrown a burning car tire at their Manhattan Beach house, igniting the front door. After getting their three children to safety, Ron doused the flames with a garden hose. Repairing the scorched entryway and smoke damage cost more than $500,000, but the toll was far greater.
