We made to the steps of City Hall Friday night and the statements we heard were heartbreaking. We blurred the lens to protect the identity of the speakers.
Hate Crimes have seen an increase since the Donald Trump Win For The Presidency.

We've talked to a person who had considered suicide the past month or won't talk to their parents because they voted for Donald Trump. We talked to a woman who's children are black and a boy came up to her 6th grade daughter and said “I'm sorry they're going to slave you”?
As Chris Hedges wrote last night on his blog:
“We are the most spied upon, watched, eavesdropped, photographed and monitored population in human history “
Even though many of us didn't vote for Donald Trump there is a heavy atmosphere down on Main last night like we needed to wear a tee shirt that read "Never Trump". I realized this when a group of black college students car stalled at the gas pump at Quick Trip on Main Street. We heard that ominous repeated click of a dead car battery and our driver asked me if they thought the car was stalled and I said "yes, you might need a wrench and some sandpaper but we can give you a jump"? A young black student who I suspect had her "drink on" stuck her head out the car window and said, "sir, you're being a racist"? The other students in the car immediately told her to "shut up". We got the car started and the young woman was quite gracious as we said goodbye and I closed the car hood for them, but it opened my eyes of the shock doctrine that occurred as a result of this election . . .
