Sadly, ignorance has no geographic home. Incidents of hate crimes against many different groups have occurred all over this country, and other states and larger cities are hardly immune. But I agree that it is sad that such misconceptions about people persist. The Sikh Temple in Oak Creek has been there for over 5 years, and their doors are open to anyone. They are welcoming and kind. There is simply no excuse for anyone here not knowing who they are and what they stand for.
