After spending five days in Washington, D.C. for the Women's March, Spokane resident Lena Negrete came home to find a sign in her yard that read, "White Lives Matter More!"
The sign was signed, "K.K.K. The true boys in da hood" and was placed in front of the "Black Lives Matter" sign that Negrete has had in her yard since summer.
A judge on Tuesday denied a request for a new trial and prepared to decide whether a white supremacist convicted of shooting three people to death at two Jewish centers in Kansas last year should be sentenced to death.
To many, these seem like "isolated incidents" from fringe groups that don't warrant our attention, but to the communities being targeted, they are another reminder that hate lurks everywhere, and violence is only a neighbor away.
