Voting Is Like Driving - R Goes Backward, D Goes Forward
So while driving, windows down, you were able to read the hat and observe the full appearance of a stranger on the street, and then he was able to read your cluttered bumper sticker, and then manage to get in his nasty verbal attack?

Of course things have changed. Most people are in denial obviously, but this is not the same place as it was a few years ago.

Hate crimes went up by 40% after Brexit, it's pretty reasonable to expect a more significant raise in the US given how much Trump pandered to white supremacists and the extensive american history of racial discrimination.

Unlike the empty roads red-states in Middle America which voted 60-40 for your boy, there are actually things like traffic, stop signs, and lights in New York City.

I don't remember this happening when Bush won either in 2000 or 2004.
you are using the example of some non-entity group going out for a little publicity and fundraising as your proof that things have changed?

More evidence that this thread is just a sideshow being used to create a false image of what America is.

On the other hand, we have you - a known racist and bigot - arguing that this racist stuff is "nothing to see" here.

First of all DJT is not my boy.

Secondly, cool story bro. The ol 50 degree windows down NYC drive where the "late-30's working class unshaven white in filthy clothing" managed to read your bumper sticker and then yell at you. /r/thathappened

What is with that "working class" description man? Kind of seems like you deserve to be yelled at for being a classist.

Re: Trump's America

the only reason the KKK makes the news today is because they use the name of a powerful 19th century organization. An organization that successfully suppressed the Republican vote in the 19th century of several southern states and flipped their governments from Republican to racist Democratic controlled.

The increase in hate groups was not even across extremist sectors. The hardest core sectors of the white supremacist movement—white nationalists, neo-Nazis and racist skinheads—actually declined somewhat, a reflection, perhaps, that hate in the mainstream had absorbed some of the hate on the fringes But there were significant increases in Klan as well as black separatist groups.

Klan chapters grew from 72 in 2014 to 190 last year, invigorated by the 364 pro-Confederate battle flag rallies that took place after South Carolina took down the battle flag from its Capitol grounds following the June massacre of nine black churchgoers by a white supremacist flag enthusiast in Charleston, S.C. Rallies in favor of the battle flag were held in 26 states — concentrated, but by no means limited to the South — and reflected widespread white anger that the tide in the country was turning against them.

On the opposite end of the political spectrum, black separatist hate groups also grew, going from 113 chapters in 2014 to 180 last year. The growth was fueled largely by the explosion of anger fostered by highly publicized incidents of police shootings of black men. But unlike activists for racial justice such as those in the Black Lives Matter movement, the black separatist groups did not stop at demands for police reforms and an end to structural racism. Instead, they typically demonized all whites, gays, and, in particular, Jews.

Not sure when this happened, but I've been out and about PR of Cambridge without a jacket several days this past week. I imagine NYC has been warmer.

Let's try to only post stories that are true. Every false story just ensures that Petey will not be saved when the wolf actually comes.

This is terrible. I'm sure the mother is just trying to make a point, but she should not be shooting video in portrait if she plans on posting it online.

Been between 55 and 62 pretty much every day until today, ironically, so this is correct.

Re: Trump's America

It's still Obama's America, sadly, so all this totally real hate (like 2outs experienced as he raced by that speed reader with perfect vision) is obviously his fault. But don't worry lil einy, we're gonna be MAGAing like a mother ****er in no time
