The Racist Incidents Since Donald Trump’s Election
Rafi Schwartz reports for Fusion:
President-elect Donald Trump still has nearly two months to go before taking power, but America is already feeling one particular effect of his election: A seemingly sharp uptick in incidents of racist harassment and assault across the country. There have been reports of apparently Trump-inspired sexual harassment and anti-LGBTQ attacks as well.
Here is a running—though by no means complete—list of these incidents, as they’ve been reported by various outlets. It will, unfortunately, be updated as new reports are made available.
—A swastika, the words “Sieg Heil” and reference to Trump were painted across a Philadelphia storefront.
—A swastika and the words “Make America White Again” were painted on a wall in a Wellsville, NY park.
—A Muslim woman at the University of California: San Diego was robbed by two men she claimed made references to Donald Trump.
—The words “#FuckNiggers,” #FuckAllPorchMonkeys,” and Donald Trump’s name were painted across a student of color’s locker in a Maple Grove, MN, high school.
