Yes, racism is alive and well in this country and people are not afraid to show it.

A high school football game has been canceled in a suburban town northwest of Boston and the FBI is reportedly investigating after racist graffiti was painted on the side of a player's house.

Lunenburg High School's freshman team had been scheduled to play Oakmont Regional on Friday night before the parents of an eighth grader who plays for the Lunenburg freshman team reported the graffiti to police, who then notified the school, according to reports.

The superintendent of the school district then ruled the game would be indefinitely postponed, local media have reported.

Andrea Brazier, the mother of Isaac Phillips -- who had been granted permission to play for the school's freshman and junior varsity football teams -- told reporters her family awoke Friday morning to see their home's foundation had been spray-painted.

"Knights don't need n------," the graffiti said, noting the Lunenburg mascot.

Phillips has also been the subject of bullying incidents while on the high school teams, including having his cleats removed from his locker, filled with water and thrown in the trash can, his family says, according to the reports. The tires of a bicycle he used as transportation home from practice were also slashed, he said.

The FBI and Worcester County District Attorney's office are currently investigating the incident.

Yes, you can be bullied and be on a football team….
