The overt racism that has enveloped the country since Trump was declared the next President of The United States continued in New Jersey when a girls high school basketball team found a black dummy hanging by its neck in a classroom while visiting another school.
According to RawStory, the Plainfield High School girls basketball team, which comes from a community that’s 50 percent African-American, were visiting Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark, where less than 1 percent of the population is Black, when the racist incident happened.
When the girls arrived for their scheduled game they were given a classroom to change into their uniforms. When they entered the room they found a black dummy hanging by its neck with its eyes bulging, mouth gaped open, and a basketball attached to the string.
Someone from the team posted a picture of the racist incident on Facebook with a message.
The Plainfield team still played their game but lost, 64-20. Needless to say, they quickly left the school after the loss.
The superintendent of Clark Public Schools has said that the hateful incident was under investigation. A mother says the puppet was actually a tribute to LeBron James, and that this is all a misunderstanding.
Welcome to Trump’s new (old) Amerikkka. Great, isn’t it?
