Two 16-year-old boys have been charged with placing a cross scrawled with racist slogans at the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center, authorities said. The boys were charged Tuesday with delinquency counts of ethnic intimidation and menacing, a police spokesman said. Their names were withheld because of their age. Officials at the museum in nearby Wilberforce found the cross as they arrived at work Nov. 18.
