A rivalry between two Texas high school football teams has triggered allegations of racism.

Pictures posted to social media show Colleyville Heritage High School students at a pep rally posing with a poster painted like a wall inscribed with the words, "Paid For by Trinity," in a reference to Trump's remarks about building a wall on the U.S. Mexico border.

Colleyville Heritage is in a predominately white and affluent neighborhood. The rival school, Trinity High School, is a more racially and economically diverse school; about one quarter of the students are Latino and about 20 percent are African American.

The theme of the pep rally was "Make Colleyville Great Again."
