Stories of Racism

Recently, a colleague informed me about antisemitic slurs she was told by another co-worker.

In June, the Howard County Police Department investigated racist signs that were seen in Ellicott City. Stickers with racist messages were attached to guardrails and poles on Centennial Lane between Glastonbury Road and Centennial Lane Elementary School.

In March, I read a story about a marquee sign with the phrase “Black Lives Matter” outside Glenwood Middle School was vandalized late last week, the Howard County Public School System announced Monday. The word “Black” in the phrase was covered with spray paint to remove the word’s appearance on the sign, according to a news release from the school system. The district learned of the vandalism Saturday and then notified the Howard County Police Department.
