Dr Baskerville on Dec 30 Community Meeting

UPDATED: “I reiterate that the anti-Semitic, bigoted, and hateful comments of a speaker at “My BrothersSisters CalmUnity Engagement” were his alone. I feel badly about hurt feelings. I also reiterate the purpose of the meeting was to build bridges between communities and climb higher together. I am abundantly clear, as are the preeminent global leaders on best practices in building and sustaining the Beloved Community, that the way to do this is not to publicly excoriate and eliminate the ill-informed, but rather, to educate, to liberate, and move to higher ground. I want to make abundantly clear: hate has NO home in Montclair. We must be vigilant identifying and responding to acts of bigotry. I will continue my life’s work bringing people together and working toward a just world and increased opportunities for ALL people.”
