The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization, today condemned both vandalism defacing the Walnut Street Bridge in Chattanooga, Tenn., with Nazi swastikas and a hate crime in which a woman allegedly left a racist card on at least two vehicles in Manitowoc, Wisc.

The Chattanooga Police Department is investigating the Tennessee vandalism to see if a hate crime can be filed.

In Manitowoc, someone reported finding a red card on their car that appeared to be a hunting license to hunt Black people and included a racial slur.

Reportedly, 47-year-old Cathleen A. Yauch Yauch has been arrested charges of making a terroristic threat with a hate crime enhancer, as well as three counts of bail jumping, two felony and one misdemeanor. Yauch appeared in court Monday and was released on bail. She is due back in court on Oct. 5.

In a statement, CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper said:

“We condemn any actions that threaten or target members of minority communities and urge swift action to show that Americans stand against anti-Black racism, anti-Semitism and white supremacist intimidation.”

Washington, D.C.-based CAIR and the American Muslim community are standing in solidarity with all those challenging anti-Black racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and white supremacy.
