Families Involved In Racial Incident At MV Camp Speak Out

Two of the families of the children involved in an incident at a Martha’s Vineyard summer camp which has caused racial concerns are speaking out. 

A nine-year-old black boy had a tent strap placed around his neck by two white boys about his age at the Chilmark Community Center in July. 

A civil rights attorney for the black child's family tells the Martha’s Vineyard Times they disagree with a report from the Chilmark Town Affairs Committee that there was no evidence of overt racism. 

Meanwhile, the Times also published comments from a father of one of the white boys. 

He called the investigation of the camp incident a "witch hunt."
