There was a recent vandalism incident in a nearby area. The incident included a reference to Trump, and was racist in nature.
It makes me so angry.
I am tired of people who deny Trump is part of the problem. I am tired of people who voted for him and think he has nothing to do with this type of crime.
Trump is openly racist. He is a bully. He brags about assaulting woman. He is spreading hate and violence. His whole campaign, he spread hate and violence. So when hate and violence happens and his name is cited, why is it dismissed? Why is it denied he is involved? He may not be directly involved…he didn’t commit the destruction himself. But, he did advocate for hate. And, he is in a position of power.
When you are in a position of power, you have a responsibility to be a role model. Trump is no such thing.
And to his supporters, his voters…I do think you are part of the problem. If you claim to not share his views, but still support him, you support his message. Unacceptable.
So embarrassed for what is happening in our country.
So scared for how far back this has taken us in terms of equality.
So sad that people still promote hatred.
I hope those feeling targeted know the majority of us don’t feel this way…
