An Inclusive Litany

6/19/98

A racist graffito discovered on the gym walls of the predominantly black First Colonial High School basketball team in Virginia Beach, Virginia, turned out to have been produced by the team's black coach, Glenn Veasy, in an unusual attempt to make his players more competitive. According to local investigators, Veasy was undone by his neat handwriting and an attempt to correct a misspelling that no real vandal would notice. He had repeatedly claimed in the past to have been the victim of racial crimes.
