EDISON, NJ - Township residents on Wednesday received racist school board campaign mailers targeting two members of the Board of Education.

The flyers state that Chinese and Indian residents are “taking over” the School Board. Jerry Shi and Falguni Patel, candidates for the Board of Education, are pictured on the campaign mailers with the word "deport" stamped across their images.

The postcards say, "The Chinese and Indians are taking over our town. Chinese school! Indian school! Cricket fields! Enough is enough."

The back of the postcard states, "Let's take back our Edison and our Schools."

The postcards do not identify the group that paid for them, which is a violation of New Jersey election law.
