Hundreds Of Lunenburg Residents Protest Racist Graffiti

LUNENBURG (CBS) — Hundreds of residents attended a candlelight vigil Sunday night at the Town Common to protest racist graffiti sprayed on the home of a Lunenburg High School football player.

The vigil at the Town Common gazebo drew residents who are outraged over the spraying of a racial slur on the home of 13-year-old Lunenburg High football player Isaac Phillips.

School officials have postponed football games – including the Thanksgiving game – until they find out who is responsible for the graffiti. The police and the FBI are investigating the graffiti as a hate crime.

Isaac’s mother is white and his father is African -merican.

In an email sent from organizers of the vigil, residents were urged to take a stand against racism: “Attend if you can to show that Lunenburg is a town that will speak out for tolerance, mutual respect and diversity and will stand against hate!”
