A school district outside Pittsburgh says it’s investigating a racist Facebook post that appeared to have been published on a school board member’s personal page
MCMURRAY, Pa. (AP) — A school district outside Pittsburgh says it’s investigating a racist Facebook post that appeared to have been published on a school board member’s personal page.
Screenshots have been circulating of the since-removed post which looked like it was been made by Peters Township School Board member William Merrell.
The post included a link to a list suggesting what would happen if all African Americans left the U.S. It featured a graphic with a racial slur.
It looked as if Merrell posted the photo, writing “Crime in the Burgh would go down for sure.”
A district spokeswoman tells the Post-Gazette they’re looking into it.
