At First Coast High School in Jacksonville, Florida, vandals posted two signs over the public water fountains in an act of racial intimidation.
“Whites only,” said one sign, according to Action News Jacksonville, and the other said, “Colored.”
The signs — which hearken back to the days of segregation — are a part of the wave of racist and nativist harassment, bullying and threats that have rocked the nation since the election of Donald Trump as president on Tuesday.
School officials immediately took the signs down and are trying to find out who put them there.
Duval County Public School spokeswoman Laureen Ricks said in a statement, “School is investigating, but it appears to be a prank. Staff immediately removed the notes once it was brought to their attention.”

Checking blood for coronavirus antibodies – 3 questions answered about serological tests and immunity
Coronavirus testing in the United States is moving into a new phase as scientists begin looking into people’s blood for signs they’ve been infected by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This technique is called serological testing.
Virologist Daniel Stadlbauer helped develop a serological test to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and helped transfer it from the research lab to the clinical setting. Epidemiologist Aubree Gordon regularly uses serological assays in her research studies on influenza and dengue fever. She’s now established serological testing for SARS-CoV-2 in her research lab.
