People Across America Share Racist Tweets Just One Day Following Trump's Election

It Begins...

It Begins...

The time is here, folks! All across social media, people of all sorts of race, religion and sexual orientation are being targeted following the Trump election.

The Dust Hasn't Even Begun To Settle

The Dust Hasn't Even Begun To Settle

Nobody is safe (except perhaps, heterosexual white people), it would seem, with the dust not even given a chance to settle in the knowledge that Donald Trump will be the 45th President.



Safe To Express Bigotry

Safe To Express Bigotry

People of color, Muslims, and members of the LGBT have already begun experiencing the horrors of a Trump Presidency, as many people with bigoted opinion begin to feel safe to express them.

More Than Trolling

More Than Trolling

It's not even just limited to those hiding behind a keyboard and trolling those in bigoted fashion. People have outwardly expressed their racism and bigotry, as many of these tweets and other social media posts will show.



This Is Absurd!

This Is Absurd!

It's posts like this one that display the true absurdity of the situation, whereby we're seeing people who were born and raised in the United States, all of a sudden, having their right to be here questioned.

Where Are We Going?!

Where Are We Going?!

...And to use the word "questioned" is to probably undersell the true horror of it. Many people are experiencing straight-up racism. Where is the country headed when this is allowed to happen?



Day 1 in Trump's America

Day 1 in Trump's America

Many of these tweets were collected by Genius' Senior Editor Insanul Ahmed, and then posted to a Twitter moment which he titled "Day 1 in Trump's America".

There's More...

There's More...

Ahmed's was by no means an exhaustive list, however, as many other people got in on the act, bringing to light the atrocious happenings around the nation in the fallout to the election result.



A Sign Of Things To Come?

A Sign Of Things To Come?

All of these on this list are from, not just Twitter, but also Facebook, and text messages, telling of terrible disturbances which we really hope aren't a sign of things to come for America.

Dividing...

Dividing...

Take this one as an example of how ridiculous things are already getting. This is a two-part post. Can you see what's happening here..??



...With Walls

...With Walls

So you can see what that little wall was all about. There's really not much else we can say about that one...

Black Lives

Black Lives

The whole Black Lives Matter movement has suffered an unfortunate setback if this image is anything to go by.



Deal With N....

Deal With N....

It's incidents such as this that are making boundaries between races and truly setting us back. It's sad and makes most people angry, but it's happening and there has to be a way to deal with it.

Are We Going Backwards?

Are We Going Backwards?

What does all of this mean? Does it mean that a country with Trump at the helm is one that is setting its sights on going backwards?



Making America Racist Again

Making America Racist Again

Has Trump's election really made many people in America feel like it's okay to be racist again? It may sound like an absurd suggestion ...that is, until you see all of these social media posts!

Just Him?

Just Him?

Of course, this all follows on from the President-Elect's previous comments and promises regarding Mexicans and Muslims, etc. But is it really all his fault?



Whitelash

Whitelash

Those such as CNN commentator and attorney, Van Jones, who claimed the election was a result of what he termed a "whitelash", suggest that the election result was a reaction of white America feeling as though minorities had somehow been given more importance than them...

Is It Representative Of White America?

Is It Representative Of White America?

...So, with that in mind, it would seem that all the atrocities displayed here are from those acting out against that in further whitelashing. But does that mean it represents all white America, or even Trump himself?



Minority

Minority

There are far too many white people who are absolutely disgusted about this behavior. In fact, it is indeed a minority of racists and bigots who are gaining the notoriety here. But that is exactly the point...

Live and Let Live

Live and Let Live

In lashing out against minorities, these racist white people actually fail to realize that most white people don't feel as they do. Most people want to live and let live, so to speak...



Or Do They?

Or Do They?

...Or do they? I mean, somebody had to vote for Trump, right? And by that I mean, the majority of people had to vote for him to be their next leader.

Trump In Favor?

Trump In Favor?

There are many questions to ask in trying to figure all of this out and solve the issues. Not the least of which is; is Trump actually in favor of all of this?



Digust and Fury!

Digust and Fury!

It's hard to imagine that Trump is in favor of all of this. I mean, what person could look at this image and feel anything but disgust and fury?

An Awful Truth

An Awful Truth

On second thought, we really don't want that last question answered, lest we might actually learn a truth we don't want realized.

 



The Future...

The Future...

Whichever way you look at all of these ignorant displays, one thing is for sure; it's not good!
