We will not accept the treatment of minority groups as though they are the “problem.”—
This morning, the President of the United States has reposted Islamophobic videos from Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First, a far-right extremist group that aligns itself with white ultranationalism. The videos have long been outed as fake, hate-filled attempts to malign Muslims and to incite violence. That any member of this country or its government, much less its leader, should join forces with such hatred is cause for outrage–and for action. British MPs have called for a ban on Trump following his support of such extremist and racist content. We await the necessary bipartisan denouncement from member of the United States congressional body. But in the meantime, we at Dósis condemn this behavior and once again make plain our support and acceptance of all persons regardless of ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, social status or creed. We will not accept the treatment of minority groups as though they are the “problem.” This nation is a nation of many, and we are made stronger and better for inclusion and diversity–not division, hatred, and blatant, willful ignorance.
