On Monday, Cary, N.C., police arrested a 60-year-old man after he posted stickers reading “I love White People” with a heart replacing the word “love” on cars outside one restaurant and in the bathrooms of two other restaurants. The man was charged with ethnic intimidation, a misdemeanor offense in the state.
“We condemn this latest example of the growing racist intimidation of members of minority communities nationwide,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “There are no ‘small’ acts of hate, and every bigoted incident must be repudiated by Americans who seek to challenge systemic racism.”
Hooper said the American Muslim community and CAIR stand in solidarity with all those challenging anti-Black racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, white supremacy, and all other forms of bigotry.
