Racist graffiti found at Main Line high school

    A suburban Philadelphia school district is investigating after racist graffiti was found in a high school bathroom.

    Radnor Principal Mark Schellenger sent an email to parents condemning the message Wednesday and addressed student at an assembly Thursday.

    The message said “Kill all the” and used a derogatory term from a minority group. Officials photographed and then erased it.

    Schellenger says racist messages and behavior is unacceptable and won’t be tolerated. Police say it could be considered a hate crime.
