At the start of Ramadan, a white supremacist verbally harassed two Muslim women on the Portland (Oregon) light rail train. When bystanders intervened, he attacked them, killing two men and injuring a third. Our hearts go out to these brave men’s families and also to the harassed women.
The rise in crimes like this (like the seemingly random killing of an African American college student in Maryland by a white supremacist), are indicative of just how widespread racism, Islamophobia, sexism, etc, are in the USA. These acts must be condemned. Everyone should feel and BE safe in public spaces.Share on Facebook
