Laquetta told DailyMail.com: ‘I feel like a prisoner in my own home. 

‘She has called me many names before but to hear her being racist, that really shocked me. 

‘You should be able to feel comfortable in your own home. This is not acceptable. We still have a long way to go as a society.’  

She later shared videos of Black Lives Matter protesters outside her home.
