WHITEHALL, Pa. (AP) — Police are investigating an anonymous letter calling on a Pennsylvania day care center to fire a black worker because of her skin color.

The (Allentown) Morning Call reports that the Bridge 2 Creative Leaning Center in Whitehall Township received an envelope Tuesday containing letters addressed to the owner and a worker. The anonymous author purported to be a parent and suggested firing an unnamed worker because of her skin color.

Township police chief Michael Marks said he has never seen a letter so offensive in his 20 years of police work, and whoever sent it could face harassment and ethnic intimidation charges.

Day care owner Dominique McKelley said she doesn't believe a parent is responsible, but the center will seek prosecution of whoever is responsible.
