ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Parkway Central High School administrators are investigating after a racist message was left on a bathroom mirror.

The message, which was photographed and shared on social media, said "White lives matter.." followed by the N word.

"It makes me feel like I'm hated, honestly walking through the doors now," said Kaila Robinson, a senior at Parkway Central.

The school's principal, Dr. Tim McCarthy said to students that "actions and speech which degrade an individual’s human dignity; actions and speech which are motivated by hate, not love, have not place in school, they have no place at Central High. I believe the vast majority of our community share my commitment to that ideal." He added that he is "deeply sorry this happened."

"As a parent I don't have any tolerance for it," said Kaylinn Mahale.

The school said they have launched an investigation to determine who wrote the message and have asked students for their help.
