Unite Oregon strongly condemns racially motivated hate crime that occurred on Friday at the Green Line MAX platform on Southeast Sunnyside Road in Clackamas County. Two Micronesian men were attacked with a pair of scissors by a highly intoxicated 44-year-old white male, just because they looked differently.
Unite Oregon offers its unconditional support to the victims and urges the judicial system to fully apply the law and hold the aggressor accountable. The response to this racially motivated hate crime should be firm to ensure the collective commitment to tolerance and respect of the diversity that characterizes our nation. We are closely following the progression of this tragic event, and remain committed to supporting the victims in their recovery.
