ONE WEEK AND 200 INCIDENTS OF HATE BASED INTIMIDATIONI LATER

TRUMP SUPPORTERS AND THEIR YOUNG CHILDREN HAVE BEEN OUT IN FORCE OVER THE LAST WEEK

As you read about various hate crimes and hate should-be-crimes, remember that words come first and actions come later.  
* * * * * 
It's been one freaking week since white racists nominated Donald Trump president. Based on watching what happened with Ronald Reagan, this is the rising tide before the big storm, wave after wave of white racist abuse will be counted as the random behavior of white individuals instead of the natural outcome of 63% white males and 53% of white females voting their true feelings about anybody not-white, not Christian or atheist. And when the white violence begins, they'll do the same thing. 
Headline
OVER 200 INCIDENTS OF HATEFUL HARASSMENT AND INTIMIDATION SINCE ELECTION DAY
FROM THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER WEBSITE:  
Some of the reports that came directly to the SPLC include: 

My 12 year old daughter is African American. A boy approached her and said, "now that Trump is president, I'm going to shoot you and all the blacks I can find". We reported it to the school who followed up with my daughter and the boy appropriately.
Another, this time in a college setting:
The day after the presidential election, my friend, a black female freshman in a [Boston area college], heard a white female student say: "this is their punishment for 8 years of black people." When she turned around to see who said it, the white student laughed at her.
In Louisiana, a woman was harassed by white men in a passing car which was a frequently reported "venue" of harassment since election day: 
I was standing at a red light waiting to cross the street. A black truck with three white men pulled up to the red light. One of them yelled, "Fuck your black life!" The other two began to laugh. One began to chant "Trump!" as they drove away.
Anti-immigrant incidents often came with reference to the Trump campaign. In Washington state, a teacher reported: 
"Build a wall" was chanted in our cafeteria Wed at lunch."If you aren't born here, pack your bags" was shouted in my own classroom. "Get out spic" was said in our halls.

It's hard to tell. But I predict that the white racists will calm down over the holiday. The KKK version of white racists will simply run out of victory steam.  White folks who don't know they are white racists too will think it's just some tiny fringe individuals overreacting. There will be no group responsibility taken by close to 2/3rds of white people.

I think there will be a resurgence of white verbal violence near the inauguration as racists feel the thrill of victory again.

I really think that the 1980s white mob violence will start playing out again by 2018, but worse. Maybe with the white racism being so overt, it'll be even sooner. A woman I know suggested those who believe in gun control to at least get some mace. I'm thinking seriously about this even though I live in a blue state and don't plan on going out into the very white rural areas. You should too.

In the meantime, like the article says, let's see if we can take political action to stop some of his appointments.
