Letter: New concerns about messages of hatred

With an ideology that's a mix of racism, white nationalism and old-fashioned populism, the "alt-right" has burst into the collective consciousness since members showed up at the Republican National Convention to celebrate Trump's nomination last summer. Photo Credit: News 12

Thank you for your insightful and excellently articulated Nov. 22 editorial “The frightening rise of hatred.”

I’m a senior citizen and have lived on Long Island for more than 40 years. I participate in two synagogues, and I’ve become increasingly fearful about scary messages concerning the rise of white power and racism.

I’ve become so distraught that I logged on to my computer and set up a monthly contribution to the Anti-Defamation League.

I’d appreciate suggestions from you and your readers as to what more I can do to stop the frightening rise of hatred.
