BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Rally against Racism that was going to be held Saturday evening has been canceled due to the weather.

A local peace organization, The Street Council, originally organized the rally after a video was posted on YouTube Tuesday, showing a woman using racist slurs in front of her children.

The video, named "Racism in Cheektowaga" went viral and has had more than eight million views.

The peace group's founder is friends with the man who posted the video. He says racism comes in all walks of life, and it is an issue that should be addressed directly, rather than ignored.

We spoke with the founder of the The Street Council and they say they are working to reschedule the Rally.
