Christie: Aryans Were A Downer

Christie Wood (re: Aryans stage protest near Human Rights Institute): I drove by them on my way to drop off some food for the Martin Luther King Gala event hosted by the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations. All of the good thoughts I had been having about our event, including the 26th year of the children's program hosted on MLK birthday at NIC, were suddenly dampened by the sight of hate. But I reminded myself that our unfortunate history in this arena is why I joined the Task Force two years ago- to help victims of hate, to help promote human rights and equality for all, and work with our community to celebrate diversity.

Question: Is Kootenai County fertile for the second coming of an Aryan Nations HQ?
