Anti-Semitism Is Unbecoming©

Teacher has been target of past slurs

AMHERST, Mass. — A black math teacher at Amherst Regional High School has again been the subject of racist graffiti.

The Daily Hampshire Gazette reports that graffiti intended for Carolyn Gardner was on a wall in the boy’s bathroom at school.

Sonji Johnson-Anderson, who says she is Gardner’s sister, says they are hurt and bewildered. She says the community should pressure school administrators to end the graffiti.

An anonymous tip line has been set up on the high school’s website.

Racist graffiti was left in a bathroom in October and on Gardner’s classroom door.

On March 24, a racial slur intended for Gardner was left in a girls’ bathroom.

Principal Mark Jackson says an individual was found responsible for one of the incidents and punished.

BEDFORD, Mass. — A string of anti-Semitic incidents reported at some Bedford schools is forcing schools officials to take action with police, clergy and town officials, according to the Boston Globe.

The Globe reported Thursday that three reported anti-Semitic incidents have been reported in schools this year, including one incident in an elementary school where a student said she was told that since she’s Jewish, her country would be destroyed, and another child was allegedly told she couldn’t have a cracker because Jews don’t believe in Jesus Christ.

“The Bedford Police Department, in partnership with Bedford public Schools, is committed to ending and preventing any further acts of anti-Semitism in our community,”  said in a statement.

The first reported anti-Semitic incident was reported at the high school last fall when “Kill the Jews” and swastikas were spray painted on the walls, the Globe reported.

“”While there have been, at this time, no additional reports of hateful graffiti since last fall and no reports of violence, the Bedford Police Department nonetheless takes any allegations of hate or discrimination seriously, and will investigate any such reports,” Bongiorno said.

A community forum has been scheduled in Bedford on March 20 to address the recent anti-Semitic incidents, the Globe reported.

Swastikas, obscenities painted on homes, cars

MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. —Police in Middleborough are investigating after swastikas and obscenities were spray-painted on at least four homes and nine cars in one neighborhood over the weekend.

The vandalism was discovered Saturday morning by an officer on patrol.

Lt. Robert D. Ferreira Jr. said the graffiti appears to be random and not aimed at specific people or families, and it does not appear as if the swastikas were aimed at Jewish families.

There was no word on any suspects or arrests.

Sharon Sherman tells The Enterprise her home and car were vandalized. She attributed the graffiti to kids “just being stupid.”

Most of residents hit cleaned up the graffiti on their own.
