Just hours after Donald Trump won 2016 presidential race, students at Maple Grove High School returned to class to find racist messages inspired by the GOP candidate.
On Wednesday, a father of a Maple Grove student posted on Facebook images of graffiti that were taken by his son.
“He does not feel safe at his own school any more,” Fred Ndip said. “I am not sure what to tell him!”
The photos show a locker door with large letters that read: “F*ck N****rs”
Other messages on the door included: “F*ck all porch monkeys,” “Whites only” and “White America.”
The words “Trump Train” were also on the door.
A second image showed a toilet paper dispenser with the words “Make America Great Again.”
“I went in and looked on the bathroom door and honestly was in shock. That’s the first time I honestly felt like crying at school,” junior Moses Karngbaye told WCCO. “I just walked back to class with my head down, I was like I can’t believe people actually took the time out of their day to write something this offensive.”
Karngbaye said that he took photos of graffiti that said “All you ‘N’ go back to Africa” and “Now the white people are going to take over.”
In a statement on Wednesday, Osseo Area Schools confirmed that the photos were real, and that an investigation was underway.
“It goes against everything we stand for, and it is completely contrary to our core values as a district and individual schools,” the statement said. “This incident is additional evidence of the pressing need in our schools, our community and our nation to find ways to talk about race constructively and respectfully.”
