Being non-white and attending school in Donald Trump's America.

Courtesy of Think Progress:  

During lunch at Royal Oak Middle School in Royal Oak, Michigan, a group of students chanted “Build the wall! Build the wall!”

But that is not all.

Even past secondary school this kind of thing is happening.

Courtesy of Crooks and Liars:

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, York NAACP President Sandra Thompson revealed that she had been receiving reports of students at York Vo-Tech "being spit on, attacked, and called names because of their race or perceived Immigrant status."

One concerned parent provided video of students at the school holding a Donald Trump campaign sign while shouting "white power." 

The group "Parents of York County School of Technology Students" said on Facebook that members had received reports that "Trump's presidential win was announced at school today amidst chants of 'white power.' That white students referred to other races as their slaves, and at some points even spit on those students." 

And of course you know that if this is happening in other states that Texas will not allow themselves to be left out.

This is what happens when you put a xenophobic racist in the White House.

Hope has been replaced with fear.

Tolerance has been replaced with distrust.

And love has been replaced with hate.

    If Trump does not broadcast a statement sometime today to students across the country telling these ignorant kids, whose parents voted for him, that their behavior is absolutely unacceptable and unAmerican, we will know that he agrees with them and that he meant every racist, nativist, misogynistic word he spoke during the last two years. it's all up to president-elect Donald Trump now. That buck stops with you, Donald.

      I was in one of our two local bookstores this morning and I found a group of twenty or so people having a serious group discussion about the aftermath of the election and then I talked with two people at cash registers and several customers. We all were feeling as if there had been a death in our families. In fact, our system of government took a serious hit on Tuesday; let's hope it doesn't turn out to be a fatal one.

    7. Anonymous9:27 AM

      @ Beagelmom
      It probably won't be fatal for you, if you are white. It's we minorities that will have to live in fear of some racist murdering us and having it condoned by the Fing President of the USA. This isn't my country anymore, not when the good majority of the people want to take back everything we have fought and won.

    8. He won't.

      He doesn't understand his roll as president or what his responsibility is.

      Obama will try and fail because these racist assholes have now been given carte blanche to ignore the n*#^%&* in the White House.

      If someone in a position of authority had stopped all this nonsense when it began with Obama, I don't think we would be in this position today.

      McCain could have shut Sarah up when they were chanting kill him.

      Congress could have sanctioned the guy for yelling liar during the state of the union.

      Obama could have told Trump to go to hell when he questioned his birth certificate.

    He IS a self-professed racist and the white kids in schools are following his lead. Those kids should be taken to the backyard of the school and given a good talking to and beating! (I'm white!) It's obvious their parents need to have a conversation with them too.

    3. Check the news.

      There's two students in black face posing in front of a Confederate flag.

      What needs to happen is the shunning of social media.

      People need to get off Facebook immediately. Then close their Twitter, Instagram etc.

      Social media is as much to blame for giving us Trump as the mainstream media.

      Then start shunning the mainstream media. I can't name one outlet that I trust, not even PBS. So I'm simply not watching the news any more.

      I will use the internet to read many, many "newspapers" both in and outside the U.S. Not editorials or opinion pieces. Even so, I'll have to vet the information from many outlets to mine for the true facts. Yes, it's time consuming and exhausting. But that's what you have to do to fight political propaganda. That is our new normal.

      Get over it, we have 4-8 years of trump, we'll get through it just like W, we'll just sit back, ignore it, pretend like it didn't happen and live our lives politics free.

      Isn't this the greatest pass we've been given? Another 4-8 years of not paying any attention to politics and juts getting through it.

      I feel like I've been given a new lease on life, one that doesn't include worrying about who is the leader of my country. I live here, it's kind of a crap country compared to so many others, but there is a lot of freedom to do what you want here and who the fuck cares who is "in charge"?

      Sorry 5:19 AM - we do need to blame the white people of America (especially in the Midwest), because it has been proven they are who did cast the majority of America's vote to elect the bastard, Donald Trump!

      Get your facts straight! Very, very few minorities voted for him - which we all knew would happen - due to the statements he made as to being a self-declared racist! (Minorities - blacks, browns, Mexicans, Asians and anti Muslims!)

      Our very own fellow Americans - majority white - did this dastardly deed to all of us and we're ALL going to suffer the consequences! ALL levels of our population - poor, middle class and some of the wealthy will experience losses in so many, many ways!

      Some of the wealthy will be included due to their asset values dropping because of bonds losing their value! Bond value just started dropping - due to the directions Trump has said he'll take our country!

      Fuck Donald Trump! He is going to be a disaster for our country, each American as well as folks around the world!

      I'll really be shocked if he is still alive a year after he take his oath as potus. He is a very evil man - having zero ethics!

    3. Anonymous12:51 PM

      YOU do realize that it wasn't bernie people that made this happen there is so much data on the web now about who voted, who didn't and their economic and demographic circumstances.

      It's not a bernie thing, just grow the fuck up and get over it. We have trump for 4-8 years, it's all going to be okay, for many of us, but for a few it's gonna be shitty.

    4. This had nothing to do with Bernie except that he read the populace correctly and the DNC ignored him.

      And yes, white women, blacks, hispanics, asians and significantly those making less than $30,000 a year voted for TRUMP.

      So get off your fucking Bernie bashing shitwagon and grow the fuck up.

      "The exit polls provide some clarity: A significant chunk of Obama voters flipped to Trump. Trump won 10 percent of voters who approve of Obama’s presidency and 23 percent of voters who think the next president should “be more liberal,” according to CNN data. Trump significantly outperformed Romney among union households. He did 14 points better than Romney among whites without a college degree, according to The New York Times, and 16 points better among households with less than $30,000 in income. The Trump Democrat turns out not to be a myth, but a meaningful constituency that just cost Clinton the presidency."

      Bernie had it right. The DNC didn't pivot when it needed to.

      So stop blaming Bernie supporters for the hubris of the Democratic Party leadership.

      We need to follow Michael Moore's Day one and Day two plans, get Howard Dean back as chair of the DNC if we have any hopes of making any gains in 2020. 2018 is already a loss.

      While I respect your views the loss of Hillary is this election , by the way she lost would not have been a Bernie victory.
      Bernie has been a do nothing no way a progressive in any form for 25 yrs. Bernie also may have garnered more of the white vote but less of the minority vote( I will speak as a minority). tRump won because people are hate filled and ignorant.
      The Democratic party could have run Jesus incarnate himself and the GOP ould have tried to stone him for looking "arab".
      This really has not much to do with having a great candidate ( whom we did) and more about the hate, bigotry, and hidden racism, that has been brought to the head in the last 8 yrs.

      I'll bet the Clinton marriage is even tighter than it was prior to Hillary Clinton's loss to become our much needed POTUS.

      There will be no divorce! Total bullshit as usual being spread by Republicans. They just have to start something negative about the Clintons, which has been their constant mantra/bullshit which has been going on for years and the Clintons stronger people because of it.

      I personally love the Clintons and thank them for their outstanding service to America for all these years. We've been fortunate to have them both within our midst. And, they are continuing to do good things for Americans and people around the world!

      Fuck ALL Republicans and may many of them find major problems within their personal lives. I detest them, their party and their newly elected piece of shit for potus!

      He'll be the worst president our country has ever experienced and Americans need to prepare themselves for it and the possibility of a civil war.

      Thank God we have had President Obama who showed us what being an outstanding POTUS really is. He's done a wonderful job taking care of Americans and our country! He and Joe Biden are going to be missed! Love them both and want to thank them from the bottom of my heart!

    I know that we can not stereotype everyone who voted for Trump however his campaign rhetoric already unleashed and encouraged violence throughout his campaign beyond name calling. He literally demonized entire groups and the more vile and bigger his lies the more wildly enthusiastic rally supporters and convention attendees became. Trump will continue to project like projecting the media incited protestors which also serves him that they not be heard especially deceiving people the protestors are paid.

    Congratulations to everyone who praised and admired Trump
    for "telling it like it is" speaking in crude, vulgar and limited vocabulary and constant bullying and smearing of an abuser in degrading demeaning language.

    Congratulations to those who voted for him disregarding his lies and venomous words only because they love buying as many guns and any gun they chose or to not be required to have health insurance, or perhaps trusting him he alone will make them wealthy or is the wisest person who knows how to wipe out ISIS.

    They made a pact with the devil trading civil discourse, tenants of what already made America exceptional and great condoning a white supremacist society and violence. The "taking back" of America to white man rule treating females as third world countries do and violence begun against anyone who poses a threat to their domination and who refuses to be marginalized and subjugated is dismissed and falsely accused by the President Elect.
