After the new president of the United States was announced all hell broke loose. It seems like our biggest fears are coming true, America is becoming the land where bigots and racists roam around wrecking havoc and feel entitled to do so.
Not even 24 hours after Donald Trump was elected. A nightmare of hate and violence erupted, and it looks like it’s only the beginning.
Minorities of all types have reported to be terrorized by insensitive and offensive racist, misogynistic, and xenophobic people who admittedly have always been there but now, after Trump was elected, feel free to express and manifest their hate without constrains, putting in danger the well-being and even the lives of many.
From verbal threats towards Muslims on the streets to assaulting women on the subway, the Trump supporters are doing their best to ‘make America great again’ already.
Racist slurs are chanted in universities freely, private and public properties are vandalized with the same offensive words, and neo-Nazis are now proud to announce their white supremacist views openly, urging and threatening ethnic minorities to ‘go back where they came from’ According to WCCO, “Trump” was written alongside “whites only” and “white America,” complete with a few N-word filled hate phrases.
Other victims of the awful behavior include pretty much everyone except white males. Women are now sexually harassed in public because Donald Trump said it was Okay to “grab her by the pu**y”
African American people are threatened with guns and hijabs are snatched away from people who clearly have the Constitutional right to exercise their religious beliefs freely. The LGBTQ community as well as Asian-Americans are just as affected by the events.
Other supporters planning to celebrate include the Ku Klux Klan, who announced on their website they will hold a victory “klavalkade Klan parade” on December 3 honoring Trump’s victory.
A spokeswoman for the group said the event would be “unannounced” and would take place somewhere in North Carolina.
Is this really the world we live in now? Did we work so hard to get rid of prejudice for this?
