New York Times contributor and author Erin Aubry Kaplan ranted in a racist Times op-ed about her free-standing library box that she built on her front lawn in Los Angeles and how a white couple had the nerve to stop and peruse the books she had set out.

“About a year ago, I decided to build a library on my front lawn. By library, I mean one of those little free-standing library boxes that dot lawns in bedroom communities around the country — charming, birdhouse-like structures filled with books that invite neighbors and passers-by to take a book, or donate a book, or both,” she wrote in an op-ed published Sunday by the newspaper.
