This past weekend, someone hatefully placed a swastika on the football field at El Camino High School in south San Francisco.

It’s unclear if it was an ignorant prank or something more hateful, but police in South San Francisco are looking into who plastered a giant swastika over the weekend in the middle of El Camino High School’s football field following graduation ceremonies.

The vandals sneaked onto the artificial turf field some time after Friday’s graduation to commit the crime and used removable, snap-together tiles on the turf after the celebration to construct the massive Nazi image, (according to the assistant principal).

This type of hate crime reared its ugly head this last fall at El Camino.

This is the second incident involving racial turmoil at the high school in recent months, as a student in October came forward after allegedly being a victim of racial bullying while a member of the football team, claiming he was called a racial slur and taunted to put a noose around his neck.

School officials are uncertain if the surveillance cameras will reveal who is responsible for the hateful display.  This is just another reminder that racism is far from over in this country.

    If they went to El Camino, they would be ignorant of history. And guilty of stupidity.

    the idiots are probably a family member of someone on the police force. of course the cameras won’t show anything. just like the kendrick johnson case, cameras everywhere and operable, but show nothing. you can even see where the video has been edited. police family member involved. that’s the only reason why video evidence will be obscured or tainted. bastards.

          or, at one point turn out all the lights, and they are wearing glow sticks, rockin’ it. but, either way, these kids made a statement and it can’t be copied.
