    Racist Graffiti Found on High School's Black History Display
    La policía persiguió este lunes a una camioneta robada desde Northridge al área de Reseda, donde dos sospechosos salieron y corrieron por un vecindario antes de ser arrestados.

    A Massachusetts high school in investigating after a display celebrating African-American history was defaced with racist graffiti.

    The MetroWest Daily News reports that the N-word was discovered on the Wayland High School display just days after the town celebrated its 50th anniversary in the Metropolitan Council for Education Opportunity.

    METCO is a state desegregation program that buses inner city minority students to suburban schools.

    Superintendent Arthur Unobskey says the "hateful words" won't be tolerated.

    Principal Allyson Mizoguchi said in a letter to parents that the school needed to work toward becoming a "fully inclusive" community.

    Students say other racist messages have been written in the school including a swastika.

    Police Chief Patrick Swanick says it's not a hate crime and school officials are handling the matter internally.
