Not My America

I'm sick of hearing the excuses.  Don't try to claim you don't agree with the racist things Trump says, or try and convince me that he doesn't really mean those things.  Because the truth is, a vote for him was a vote of support for the hate he speaks.  And there are people in this country that are using that as an excuse to act out their truly racist ideals.  

The following are all compiled from various news outlets including CNN, twitter, personal accounts and local news sources.  This is obviously just a small sampling of what's been reported and verified, but I assure you these things are happening across the entire country.  

We did this, America.  We're responsible for letting this hatred become legitimized by electing a bully who outwardly supports this kind of discrimination.  It's now up to us to speak up and demand that things like this are not okay.
