Last week, a student at the Guilford Community College in Greensboro, NC received 2 letters on two separate days, threatening his life because of his sexual orientation. The bigot has not yet been identified, and the harassed student's identity is being kept private by the media.
In response, the entire student body held a candlelight vigil showing their support for the attacked student and distaste for the hate crime. They plan to initiate a movement to speak to their congressional representatives and legislature about getting hate crime defined with "sexual orientation" throughout the state. Let's hope something comes of this; it'd be very good.
