‘Not for n****rs’: Flier warns black students not to donate blood at high school blood drive
Fallston High School in Harford County, Maryland has launched an investigation after a racist message scrawled on a blood drive flier tried to discourage African-American donors.
WMAR reported that the school became aware of the incident when a student shared a photo of the flier on social media.
The photo shows an advertisement for a Dec. 5 blood drive sponsored by the American Red Cross. At the bottom of the flier, someone scrawled the words, “P.S. Not for n****rs.”

“This is not accepted or tolerated in our schools,” the statement insisted. “The flyer was removed and an investigation has been initiated.”
