In a statement, CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper said:
“White supremacist and racist propaganda has no place in our neighborhoods and communities. Unfortunately, we are witnessing a rise in the promotion and mainstreaming of hate rhetoric. CAIR stands firmly in solidarity with all those challenging anti-Black racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and white supremacy.”
He noted that CAIR recently condemned similar flyers found in Kentucky and other racist incidents in Louisiana.
