Protests

Not unexpectedly, there have been numerous protests across the US against Trump’s election. Most seem to be generally peaceful, if numerous.

Also, there have been multiple reports of racist incidents made by whites in reference to people of color in the 24 hours following the election.

It will certainly be interesting to see how Trumps rhetoric impacts the racial tensions in a nation already embroiled in a strained relation between law enforcement and minorities following multiple police shootings and controversies across the nation.   This also as the Dakota Pipeline protest has been continuing in with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and allies standing against oil pipeline construction across the Missouri River just north of the reservation.
