From Faith Action Newsletter: Chapel Hill vs. East Chapel Hill Soccer Game
In the aftermath of the incident, the Chapel Hill Schools have determined that this particular referee will never serve as a sports official ever again for city schools. However, the feelings of fear and intimidation that this young student and his family have experienced cannot be erased by this decision alone. This hard working family already had to fight an unjust deportation order in the past, and now it seems they are facing vocal slurs and discrimination at every turn. This is the legacy of hate filled politicians and "civic leaders" who have used acusation and fear to polarize a confused public for political gain.
People of faith must reclaim the high ground and begin to do everything possible to restore a society of harmony and trust where EVERY person is valued as a child of God, fully deserving of respect and fair treatment.
