The United States Postal Service is investigating after a stupid racist sign was placed on the outside of its Flemington, N.J., location.

“March is national stop blaming white people month! Accept responsibility for your own bad choices. Hug a white person!” the sign, which was put up sometime Thursday, read. It was taken down in the afternoon by employees, USPS Postal Inspector Greg Kliemisch confirmed, NJ Advance Media reported.


Posting signs on the building is strictly prohibited, but aside from that, the content of the sign has put residents on edge.

Flemington Councilwoman Besty Driver blasted the sign on the Flemington Forward public Facebook page, insisting that it was not a reflection of the town.

“The fact that somebody even put the sign up is just sad and not a reflection of our town,” Driver said. “Racism is not a laughing matter.”


It is not clear what consequences, if any, the sign poster will face if caught.
