Black, whites, Hispanics and people of all backgrounds consolidated and bonded over their hatred of Trump (while maintaining that liberals are tolerant and peace loving) and their concern of what may come as a result of a Trump presidency.
White apologist liberals who hate their whiteness (much like Obama’s mother did) slipped their Birkenstocks on, chose their best tie dye shirt, packed up some hemp toilet paper and extra matches to light up their dank, and proceeded to use their best hand writing for their pro Bernie Sanders sign to squeeze into their Toyota Prius while enjoying hits of the 1960s.
Once they arrived, they took photos and footage to prove to the world that they're making a difference - as if marching the streets with homemade signs hadn't already been done (to death) in previous eras.
Black Americans joined the fray, carrying Black Lives Matter signs (supporting a narrative that is not supported by statistical evidence) and believing that Trump would return America to the days of Jim Crow .
The Hispanic community also protested in large numbers, carrying the flag of Mexico - a country so “great” everyone is leaving it (or trying to escape).
The rainbow flag made its appearance out in the street as well - LGBT's predict that Trump will implement Sharia law and throw gay people off of buildings for embracing an alternative lifestyle.
Wealthy, elite celebrities came out of the woodwork to bash Trump:
“How horrible. Voldemort was nowhere near as bad.”
He’s a fascist, a xenophobic fascist.”
“This is a national disaster. An illiterate, bigoted, misogynistic, racist, rapist has become president.”
“I didn’t think I was capable of feeling hatred like this. The biggest insult to our country is this snorting piece of garbage.”
“He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con – a bullshit artist.”
-Robert De Niro.
In the sitcom Blackish, actor Anthony Anderson delivers a dramatic, fear-inducing monologue about Trump becoming President of The United States:
“You think I’m not sad that Hillary didn’t win? That I’m not terrified about what Trump’s about to do?”
Apparently Hillary Clinton would have been better for black people (it's not like she and her husband in 1991 approved legislation that resulted in the incarceration of numerous African American males).
Is any of this fear justified?
Let’s break this down by demographic:
Whites: Most whites are out in protest over concerns for other groups of people. The election of Trump does not cause whites to be worried over themselves. The average white liberal is out in the street protesting because their biggest fear is being accused of racism. The media has painted Trump as a racist, therefore white liberals feel the need to publicly declare their hate for Donald Trump.
Black Americans: President Trump has spoken of his support for school vouchers which would bring inner-city children of poor neighborhoods with failing schools that lack resources and proper safety into schools in better neighborhoods that are safer, have more resources and provide better education.
Trump has also defunded Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger’s legal black genocide project which has aborted over 15 million black children since Roe V. Wade.
He also signed a bill providing millions to historically black colleges. His policies of deregulation will help employment for black Americans which historically suffer high unemployment.
We had a black president for 8 years whose policies of high regulation resulted in black Americans losing ground in almost every economic category. And still, there's widespread concern about a white president whose ideas will help the black community?
Black Americans voted in majority numbers for Hillary Clinton, despite her husband’s administration creating drug laws which disproportionately incarcerated black Americans; despite Hillary Clinton’s professed love for Margaret Sanger and Senator Robert Byrd, a former Exalted Cyclops and recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan.
(On a side note)If 8 years of having a black president did little to nothing for the black community, it is a sign that the community itself has to deal with issues that are damaging to the black community. There is no black savior. Nothing will beat individual accountability.
Hispanics: They're concern appears justified as one of Trump’s main focuses has been on the building of a wall and the deportation of undocumented workers.
What is ironic, however, is that no one spoke out about the record in deportations during the Obama administration which totaled 2.4 million, significantly higher than his predecessor, George W. Bush.
No liberal spoke out against cracking down on illegal immigration when liberals such as Harry Reid, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Obama made similar Trump-like comments about immigration.
The LGBT community: This group is the most perplexing of all Trump's antagonists.
He's never uttered a word about reversing gay marriage, whereas Hillary Clinton had previously spoken out against gay marriage.
And lastly, the Jewish community: Fear among the Jewish community has also been unwarranted.
Trump’s predecessor was one of the least supportive presidents of Israel. Trump has shown strong support of Israel which has been acknowledged by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who also expressed the lack of support he received from the Obama administration.
Trump’s son-in-law is Jewish and his daughter, Ivanka is a converted Jew.
This unjustified fear is not a new phenomenon, however.
Similar unfounded comments were made during the George W. Bush administration. An administration which increased social spending and introduced a record number of minority hires in government.
Although the Bush administration was unsuccessful and at times inept, no legislation or action was completed that was in any way anti-black.
Bush, being a white republican however, caused panic and absurd comments such as these:
“He is our Bull Connor.”
“George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”
“The only difference between Hitler and Bush is that Hitler was elected.”

What the liberals and “news outlets” such as CNN won’t tell you is that any white, republican male is going to be called racist and will be feared.
The left will utilize name calling for everyone they take issue with. If Ted Cruz had won, he would have been considered a sellout to his race for being Hispanic and having a tough immigration stance.
If Ben Carson won, he would have also been considered a sellout and some of the worst terms imaginable would have been used because black conservatives are subject to intense hatred from the black community.
To all the Trump haters, I advise you to stay tuned and see what he does. Stop the name-calling and the critiquing (such as his skin tone and hair) and focus on his policy.
The other alternative would have been Hillary Clinton, so it’s not as if America lost out on something great. If Trump’s policies fail, the American public will have an opportunity to vote him out in 4 years.
Give the bullshit a rest.
