LUNENBURG (CBS) —The parents of a Lunenburg football player who was the target of a hate crime, say they feel like they’ve been lied to since day one.
Racist graffiti was spray painted on the home of Isaac Phillips, a player on the high school football team.
On Monday morning, the parents of Isaac Phillips met with Lunenburg’s Superintendent of Schools.
“Today we found out there have been allegations about two football players that have used the word during two past football games,” Andrea Brazier said. The word was allegedly used against Worcester South players in two recent games. “They’ve been telling us since day one that they can’t believe this word would be used in our football program and now we find out it has been used.”
Students and teachers were wearing red to school on Monday, to show their support for Phillips.
