“Hang yourself by your headscarf” – Georgia high school student allegedly pens anonymous note to Muslim teacher

RT (h/t Siddharth) The anonymous note was signed “America” and featured two US flags, but the student who sent it has not yet been identified. Mairah Teli, a 24-year old language arts teacher, shared a photo of the note along with her reaction on Facebook.
“I’m a high school teacher and sadly this anonymous note was put in my classroom today. As a Muslim, I wear a headscarf as a practice of my faith,” she said. “I want to share this to raise awareness about the reality and climate of our community. Spreading hate isn’t going to ‘make America great again.’ #DonaldsAmerica #NotIntimidated #HereToStay#LoveTrumpsHate.”
“Remember that there are MORE people that appreciate our diversity,” a commenter said under her post. “We will stand with you. The person who sent this needs mental health help.”
