What Has Trump Unleashed?
When I read their account on Facebook, I couldn't help but think, "What have we unleashed? What has Trump unleashed?" I shared the story with a few friends and family members, and one of my cousin's from the Northwest remarked that prior to the election, he had heard two separate references to the "N" word at his golf club that he hadn’t heard in years. He reflected, "It has always been there but somehow just the presence of The Orange One seems to have vindicated the bigotry for some." All we can hope is that such bigotry is limited and contained to small pockets of America. The fact that it popped up in a county that overwhelming voted against Trump (75%-25%) doesn't give me a lot of hope.
