A 15-year-old white Catholic high school student was charged with second-degree aggravated harassment as a hate crime, after he allegedly used chalk to write "KKK 4 life" on his black classmate's leg, according to a report in the Staten Island Advance.

The unidentified teen, who was suspended from school and is also accused of writing the acronym for the Ku Klux Klan - "KKK" - on the victim's sweater, told police he did so on a classroom dare, the newspaper reported.

According to the newspaper, the victim put his head down on his desk after finishing a test early when the teen allegedly wrote the racist remarks. No one noticed it until his mother saw it when the victim got home from school, according to the published report.
