Good In The Hood Festival Gets Racist Threats

(Portland, OR)  --  The Good in the Hood diversity festival in Portland is going on as planned despite a threatening letter from someone who smacks of white supremacy.  The anonymous letter received by a northeast neighborhood group this week is laced with racist words as well as misspellings and mentions President Trump, saying he issued an executive order to kill black people.  It specifically threatens festival organizer Shawn Penny and his family, and says the festival won't happen unless people want to see a blood bath.  However, the annual festival is still set for June 23rd through the 25th at Lillis-Albina Park in the Eliot neighborhood, and local and federal police are investigating the letter.
