DENVER - Dozens gathered in a Denver neighborhood on Monday to stand in solidarity against hate, bigotry, and intolerance after a racial threat surfaced over the weekend.

The threat, which was sent to several homes near 27th and Lafayette, attempted to intimidate both African American and Jewish residents.

"I love this neighborhood, I've been here since 1961 and I've never had a problem with any of the neighbors," said an 81-year-old woman who was specifically mentioned in the note.

Denver Police are investigating whether or not the incident should be considered a hate crime but so far no charges have been filed.

"We are making sure that no neighbor has to live in fear, has to live in the shadows, has to live in darkness because someone is intimidating them," said community activist Brother Jeff Fard.

    I would hope that every single decent human being would rally behind the victim and against any sort of hate activity. I keep thinking it is kids, hoping I guess they don’t know better, yet!
