The election of President Trump has seen millions of hidden white supremacists come out to the fore. These days, there is no shame in the targeting of people of color, because the president turns a blind eye, and in his own way, endorses the actions of these far-right groups.
The President has disparaged African nations as “shitholes,” leaving many Black Americans are feeling isolated and unsafe in their communities or workplaces and even in schools.
He also seems to only attack Black celebrities who speak out against him, spending the time to publicly chastise and belittle them via his Twitter page. We are living in scary times. The president appears to be willingly cosigning hate and violence against minorities in the United States, and many people are afraid.
“Since the election of President Trump, at least five black-owned trip organizations have told VICE News that they’ve experienced upticks in interest from clients eager to get out of the United States.
VICE News followed a group of women to the Women of Color Healing Retreat in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica; a travel experience that emphasized yoga, vegan food, political education seminars, and specifically banned white people.”
