So how should a father, a Muslim American immigrant, a person of color respond to his city councilman with clearly racist views.

A father who has raised three kids in the beautiful state of Idaho and focused all his energy over the last 19 years of living in Pocatello towards building bridges and inculcating a sense of kindness, inclusion and love of diversity in his kids shall respond. And as these kids leave their nest in Idaho, the only message he gave them was there is “beauty in diversity and all people with all their differences make this world a better place.”
