colored-and-whites-only-via-cbs-47Someone posted “whites only” and “colored” signs over water fountains at First Coast High School in Jacksonville, Florida.

“The signs placed on top of the fountains are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated by our school district,” Dr. Nikolai Vitti, Duval County Public Schools Superintendent, told in a statement. “We are investigating the matter to determine who is behind the action to provide the appropriate discipline and counseling.”

The signs clearly evoke segregation policies formerly common in the United States. Pictures of the signs started circulating on social media, stoking outrage.
