Racism is alive and well in this country and we need to continue to fight against it. It’s not ok to hate or insult others based on their race or ethnicity. Why people are so shallow they’d be a party to this is beyond me. It seems to me (though I’m not without fault) that positive actions, responses, and feelings bring more joy in life than negativity. So if you can attend this vigil please do so to support your friends and neighbors.

In the wake of the discovery Sunday morning of racist graffiti inside a Rider University residence hall, students, faculty and staff to night will hold simultaneous candlelight “unity vigils” on the main campus in Lawrence and the Westminster campus in Princeton Borough.
The vigils — sponsored by the university administration, student government, and numerous organizations and clubs — will be held in the Residential Quad of the Lawrence campus and in the Williamson Quad at Westminster at 6:30 p.m.
Anyone with information about the graffiti is asked to call detectives at (609) 896-1111.
