Minneapolis North boys' basketball coach Larry McKenzie revealed during the state tournament that a racist message had been sent to one of his players and was believed to come from a student supporting Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta.

Recent high-profile incidents of racially insensitive and offensive behavior at Minnesota schools became a major topic of conversation at the Minnesota State High School League's Board of Directors meeting Thursday in St. Louis Park.

Board members said the talk would lead to action.

The MSHSL swiftly issued responses denouncing incidents involving such schools as New Prague, Prior Lake and Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta, among others, in recent months, but board members talked at length about continuing to address growing concerns.
