(WASHINGTON, D.C., 2/6/2017) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today condemned apparent hate vandalism targeting a Colorado family’s home.
The FBI is investigating the vandalism that was discovered early Sunday morning in Peyton, Colo. Vandals used feces and eggs to deface the home and messages of hate were left at the scene. The homeowner said of the hate messages: "About 10 percent of the messages were racial slur on us, 'You brown or Indian shouldn't be here,' something like that.”
“Our nation’s leaders – at the highest levels – need to address the growing bigotry we are witnessing around the country in the post-election period,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper.
CAIR's national headquarters in Washington, D.C., has noted an unprecedented spike in hate incidents targeting Muslims and other minority groups since the November 8 election.
