CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte's Islamic Center is asking for help from the FBI after receiving a letter full of threats and racial slurs.

The letter threatens to fire Muslims and deny them both loans and medical attention. The writer even threatens to kill them if they retaliate.

"Our retaliation is just making sure our rights are protected," said Jibril Hough, the director of the Islamic Center. "This is the same type of bigotry that the klan perpetuated."

The letter is signed, and Hough said other Islamic centers around the state have received the same one.
