An Illinois teen has been charged with a hate crime after he allegedly posted a picture of his black classmate to Craigslist as a “slave for sale” ad.The 14-year-old suspect, who has not been named, was charged by Naperville police with two counts of a hate crime (both felonies), and one count of disorderly conduct, according to NBC News.The student allegedly took the photo last week and posted it online with the caption, “Slave for sale (Naperville).” The post also included a racial slur.“The allegations against the juvenile in this case are beyond disturbing,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin said. “Hate crimes have no place in our society and will not be tolerated in DuPage County.”In addition the county state attorney’s statement, Naperville police Chief Robert Marshall called the post both “despicable” and “extremely offensive.” Marshall also thanked the school for investigating the racist post.The Craigslist post is the second recent alleged racist incident in Naperville, a city whose population of about 143,000 is 73 percent white and 5 percent black, according to the U.S. Census.In late October, a black family at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Naperville was asked to move tables when restaurant staff told them that a white patron didn’t want to be seated next to black people. A Facebook post on the incident went viral and Buffalo Wild Wings said it fired the service manager and the shift manager working the day of the racist incident.
