Whitehall police are investigating a racially charged letter sent to a township day care center where shaken staff members have been taking extra security precautions since early this week.

Dominique McKelley, owner of Bridge 2 Creative Learning Center in Whitehall, said an envelope addressed to her arrived Tuesday with no return address.

Inside were two identical letters — one addressed to her and another to one of her workers — urging the center to fire one of its black workers because of her dark skin color. The letter was posted on social media by staff who condemned its content, and has since gone viral.

“This is not OK,” McKelley said, her voice occasionally wavering with emotion. “It’s gone too far — this hatred. Now you’re targeting a day care center?”


Whitehall police Chief Michael Marks said he has never seen a letter so offensive in his 20 years in police work.

“It’s disturbing. This is not something you want to see in your community,” Marks said. “This is something we as a police department are going to take very seriously.”
“I didn’t want her to have to read something like this,” she said.

McKelley choked up recounting the experience.

“She started crying. She looked scared,” McKelley said of her employee. “She said she was going to quit. But I convinced her to stay. This has gotten everyone here so fired up.

“To see that look on her face when she read it … it just gets to you.”
Wow. Trump has really emboldened these racist pieces of shit. It's disgusting.

Reads like something you'd see on a sketch comedy about your awful southern aunt who can't wait to talk to a manager. But then you realize it's real and feel even worse because the girl in question got a copy too.

What's wrong with people :(

Was there any updates? Should be easy to tell who it was if any parents pulled their kids.
how can you even know it's one of the parents? it's so blatant it might as well be some random racist prankster who happened to know there was a black employee at the daycare.

That’s possible, it’s also possible it was a dumbass emboldened parent. If any parents pulled their kids shortly after that would be a big sign for me that’s why I asked if any updates.
