Caucasian School Kids Use Trump’s Words While Bullying Minority Students…

The following is what Trump has brought America.

Donald Trump’s real campaign promise was that he would give whites back the power they imagined they’d lost. That message was stated not in dog whistles, but loudly enough that the entire country heard him, even children. The trickle-down effect of Trump’s campaign rhetoric and election is now being felt among kids in schools across the country. Bullying, according to a Buzzfeed News report, has taken on an “alarming twist . . . with white students using the president’s words and slogans to bully Latino, Middle Eastern, black, Asian, and Jewish classmates.”

Buzzfeed reporters analyzed data collected by the Documenting Hate Project, which catalogs reports of bias and bullying, and found more than “50 incidents, across 26 states, in which a K-12 student invoked Trump’s name or message in an apparent effort to harass a classmate during the past school year.” The incidents took place between October 2016 and May 2017. Here are just a fraction of the incidents cited by Buzzfeed investigators:

  • A group of white male students at a high school in Shakopee, Minnesota who surrounded an African-American girl and sang the national anthem, “replacing the closing line with ‘and the home of the slaves.’”

  • In a third-grade classroom in Louisville, Kentucky, a boy chased a Latina girl while screaming “Build the wall!”

  • On the school bus, a white eighth-grader told a Filipino classmate, “You are going to be deported.”

  • A white eighth-grade student in Brea, California, told a black student, “Now that Trump won, you’re going to have to go back to Africa, where you belong.”

  • An English teacher in Spokane Valley, Washington, describes discovering a “group of white students following a Latino student in the hallway, taunting him with chants of ‘the wall’s coming!’ and ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!’”

  • The Dallas, Texas mother of a sixth-grader reported that on Election Day, students at her son’s school harassed him and his friends with shouts of, “Heil Hitlary.” One of the bullied students was told, “One million of your lives is worth less than 30,000 deleted emails.”

The conservative right can deny it all they like, but, Trump and his xenophobia and bigotry is directly related to the above.

Much more BELOW THE FOLD.

    1. Isn’t it wonderful that minority kids never taunt or bully white kids. Cuz if they did, it would reflect on Democrats badly…

      White kids and Trump are the problem! If we could get rid of them, everything in America would be perfect.

      1. A) This post does not deny that white kids get taunted and or bullied. Only a fool would believe they don’t.

        B) This post does not say white kids are the problem, they aren’t. Trump on the other hand, based on his campaign rhetoric, Nuge the Stooge and his Obama can suck on the barrel of my gun comment, Trump’s silence on white nationalist rhetoric, and so much more you are aware of, unless you’ve had your head buried in the sand is a problem. As are the parents of white children who teach bigotry and xenophobia is acceptable.

        We realize you’re never going to accept or understand anything other than you present shuttered mind belkeves, so, why waste your time or ours?

          1. A) The post is specific to Trump and his influence as president. If you haven’t the capacity to grasp this, not my problem.
            B) No where in my post did I reference Trump and his idiotic supporters as NAZI’s. Although, given your response maybe I should have?

            Try again Farmer.

          2. You seem to think that bullying is like a diode is to current, it only flows from Trump supporters to “victims”. Where the outcry over those who bully Trump supporters, like ANTIFA? Where’s your condemnation of THAT?

            Perhaps you simply mistake “correlation” for cause… and so fail to note what anti_Trumpers are “saying” to generate a reaction.
