A Brooklyn public school has repeatedly been vandalized with graffiti saying "Jump White People" on the building, teachers' cars and playground. An 11-year-old student explained "It stands for 'beat up the white people.' It's bad for everyone because it's not fair to beat up other people."
Even though four students, aged 8 to 11, have been disciplined, the graffiti continues to appear (see some pictures here). According to WCBS 2, school employees are "forbidden" to discuss the graffiti. Some teachers have asked the PS 224's principal to send a memo to parents, asking them to address what seems like young children copying gang culture.
However, one teacher told the Daily News, "It just quietly gets erased. Nothing gets done." The Department of Education says it is investigating the incidents.
