“Hate crimes have spiked by 31%, jumping from 250 incidents at this point last year to 328 as of Sunday, O’Neill said. Most of the incidents have targeted the Muslim and Jewish communities.”

“In the 10 days following the election, 867 incidents of hate crimes against immigrants, Muslim-Americans, and others have been reported around the US, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)….

From November 8 to 18, there were 99 reports of hate crimes in California — the highest of any state.”

“The Judes found the hateful words “Die n — –” and “white power” along with swastikas scrawled on their walls on Nov. 28 when they returned home from visiting their daughter Jessica in Chicago for Thanksgiving.

The vandals also poured cement down all the pipes, stole two bookcases, a refrigerator, and left the water running, causing the ceiling to collapse.”

“More than 10,000 teachers, counselors, and administrators from K–12 schools across the country were surveyed, and 90 percent say their school’s climate has been negatively impacted by Trump’s election. Eighty percent describe “heightened anxiety and concern” from vulnerable students about their futures, and 40 percent say they’ve heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants, and people based on gender or sexual orientation. According to the report, “Over 2,500 educators described specific incidents of bigotry and harassment that can be directly traced to election rhetoric. These incidents include graffiti (including swastikas), assaults on students and teachers, property damage, fights and threats of violence.” Those surveyed emphasized that these incidents increased significantly after the election.

“I’ve had a lot of students repeat the phrase ‘Trump that bitch’ in my class, and make jokes about Hispanic students ‘going back to Mexico,’” said a high-school teacher in Georgia. A high-school teacher in California said, “Someone anonymously put a swastika with the Trump tag line ‘Make America Great Again’ on the desk of a Spanish teacher.” Others — including a middle-school teacher in Indiana — reported multiple incidents: Since the election, every single secondary school in our district has had issues with racist, xenophobic or misogynistic comments cropping up. In the week since the election, I have personally had to deal with the following issues: 1) Boys inappropriately grabbing and touching girls, even after they said no (this never happened until after the election); 2) White students telling their friends who are Hispanic or of color that their parents are going to be deported and that they would be thrown out of school; 3) White students going up to students of color who are total strangers and hurling racial remarks at them, such as, ‘Trump is going [to] throw you back over the wall, you know?’ or ‘We can’t wait until you and the other brownies are gone’; 4) The use of the n-word by white students in my class and in the hallway. Never directed towards a student of color (that I’ve been told yet), but still being casually used in conversation.”
