Hate Trumps Love

Racist incidents have spiked significantly since last week's election. An article in Time Magazine documents many of these. The Trump Hate Map shows that this is not a regional thing but a nationwide phenomenon.
From Time:
“Since the election, we’ve seen a big uptick in incidents of vandalism, threats, intimidation spurred by the rhetoric surrounding Mr. Trump’s election,” Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center told USA Today. “The white supremacists out there are celebrating his victory and many are feeling their oats.”
I don't normally like to spout off about politics on a map blog but anyone who cares about basic decency ought to be concerned.

Lots of these acts are hoax by Trumps rival party. people do it to sue employers, envy, attention, and many for highly-prized pity.
