Mary C. Curtis: Fighting Global White Supremacist Terrorism
CHARLOTTE, NC — The Charlotte, N.C., Muslim community invited all to join in a United for Christchurch, New Zealand, vigil in an uptown park on Sunday afternoon, and encouraged those who came to mourn and stand in solidarity to bring posters with supportive messages. They did.
People of all races, ages and faiths – several hundred of them – listened to remarks of healing and hope and pleas for understanding, and bowed heads in prayer.
Since the horrific shooting in New Zealand, attention is being paid to the global threat of white nationalism, and how those with these ideas are becoming united through social media. This killer broadcast his crimes in real time. (Mary C. Curtis)
