Hate Crimes Since Trump Got Elected

The fact that the Ku Klux Klan is celebrating Donald Trump’s White House victory should be indication enough of the way things are going in America.

This is a running list of events.

The Loyal White Knights of Pelham (a large North Carolina branch of the Ku Klux Klan), will be celebrating Donald Trump’s triumph with a parade on Dec. 3 honoring his win over Hillary Clinton.

It’s hardly surprising that hate and intolerance has erupted across the country, considering the Republican candidate's election campaign was all about calling for ban on all Muslims, building walls, ridiculing people and hate mongering.

Attacks on Muslim women wearing  head scarves, racist graffiti and stories about bullying of immigrant children are pouring in from all over.

Here is a running list of the hate, racism and fanaticism that has gripped the United States of America after Donald Trump's presidential win.
