A first honors student living in South Philadelphia is being subjected to a racial terror campaign by “gang members” at his school for being white, CBS Philly reports. According to police, Joey Messina, 12, was jumped at school in a “6-on-1 school hallway attack” just three weeks ago.
Wednesday morning, his family woke up to the words “DIE SNITCH’N A** CRACKER spray-painted on the front of his home which police are investigating as a potential case of “ethnic intimidation.”
To add insult to injury, after Joey’s father Joe Messina complained to the school he was banned from their campus for his “pattern of behavior.”
The school claimed they have a “a zero-tolerance policy for bullying and investigate all allegations thoroughly and expeditiously.”
CBS Philly says they added, “Joe Messina, the father, ‘is no longer allowed on campus because of a pattern of behavior.'”
“They declined to provide further details.”
