PHOENIX (AP) - The principal of a private high school in Phoenix has denounced what he describes as a deep racial divide on campus.

Brophy College Preparatory Principal Bob Ryan sent a letter to parents on Monday linking the divisiveness to the recent presidential election.

KPNX-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2eG7QyS ) that Ryan condemned racist comments and criticized the harassment of student supporters of President-elect Donald Trump.

Brophy Prep is an all-boys Catholic school in central Phoenix.

According to the letter, Latino students have been asked if they were born here and whether they had started packing yet. Ryan also wrote that some African-American and Muslim students have been subject to comments he did not want to repeat.



He ended the letter with a call for unity.

Ryan did not respond to a request for comment.
