CAAR Response to Racism in St Paul Local Election
CAAR has been made aware of a racist voice mail message directed at St. Paul City Council Ward 6 candidate, Bee Kevin Xiong over the weekend. We, as members and supporters of CAAR, denounce racism directed to anyone regardless of their political affiliation. Candidates need to be judged on their competency, vision and experience — not the color of their skin or their national origin. Hateful comments should not be tolerated at any level. Incidents such as this point to the need to continue to expose racism in our community which CAAR will continue to work on. Our hope is that we can all stand united to eliminate racism together.
