Neilesh Bose: 'Humanity is my tribe'

Neilesh Bose, a Canada Research Chair in global and comparative history, wrote a column for the Times Colonist about the recent mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Here is an excerpt from "In the face of hatred, we show that 'humanity is our tribe'":

"Pittsburgh rarely makes headlines here in Victoria. It usually appears when its world-class medical facilities are referenced by heart surgeons, when its locally beloved football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, win yet another NFL championship, or when on occasion the New York Times or other major news outlets report on its friendly people and charming neighbourhoods.

Pittsburgh sits in a wooded and forested environment near the confluence of three rivers, the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio. Besides steel and football, Pittsburgh is also a city of large, globally situated universities."
