LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A hand-written racist note has been found at a soon-to-be-open business in Indiana.

According to reporter Elizabeth Choi of WISH-TV, it happened at the future home of the Level-Up Gaming Lounge in Irvington, Indiana.

There's still a lot of work that needs to be done before the opening, but earlier this week, a note was found there that read, "Close Shop. We don't support black business owners."

"My business partner is black," said co-owner Sami Ali. "I'm Puerto Rican and Arabic. The fact that we are not even open, and so many people are trying to get us out already -- it's kind of disappointing, and it's discouraging."

The partners say they aren't going to let the note stop them. They plan to frame the note and hang it inside the business as motivation to keep them going.
