Lunenburg, Mass. (WHDH) — Police in Lunenburg are investigating a racist message spray painted on an 8th grader’s home.
13 year old Isaac Phillips plays football for Lunenburg High School and the message, that contained the N-word, is just latest incident of what his parents call harassment and they say some of his teammates are behind it.
Isaac, whose mother is white and father is black, says he’s never had to deal with racism before but says he has been picked on.
Earlier this season someone put water in one of his football cleats and put it in the garbage. Then someone slashed his bike tire.
Following this latest incident, the school district cancelled Friday‘s football game and released a statement saying they were supporting Isaac and his family.
That support might not be enough though. Isaac says he wants to transfer to the nearby Leominster school district.
