High school water fountains found with ‘colored’, ‘whites only’ signs

Florida school officials are investigating after someone taped racist signs above water fountains in a high school, labeling the fountains “colored” and “whites only.”

A picture of the fountains at First Coast High School in Jacksonville, Florida, began to circulate on social media, and Duval County school superintendent Dr. Nikolai Vitti said that the incident was under investigation.

”The signs placed on top of the fountains are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated by our school district,” Vitti told the Florida Times Union. “We are investigating the matter to determine who is behind the action to provide the appropriate discipline and counseling.”

This is just one of several racist incidents that have cropped up since Election Day last week.
