Anti-Semitic, racist incidents at schools continue

Download Audio

Curry College, a private liberal arts school in Milton, Massachusetts, is continuing classes remotely for the rest of the week after anti-Semitic symbols were found on campus along with racist threats. According to police, they have been finding graffiti depicting swastikas around campus for weeks, totaling more than 20.

Curry College is not the first school to see this happen though. Mount Holyoke College saw an incident of anti-Semitic graffiti in December, Marblehead Village School had repeated incidences of the same type last month, and we have covered a number of other similar stories here on WBUR over the past year.

State Senator Barry Finegold joins us to give his perspective. Last year, he spoke with the Duxbury High School football team after an anti-Semitic incident there.

Sarah Granoff, a junior at Simmons College and Vice President of Simmons University Hillel, a Jewish student organization, also joins us to talk about what this means for students.
