What the hell just happened?

This is an informative and well-written article, but please stop talking about voting as the end-all of political participation. 1.7million (and counting) votes for Hillary were rendered statistically irrelevant by the electoral college, which was built to benefit slave owners. Millions more Americans weren’t able to vote because they are homeless or have a criminal record. 
Protesters aren’t hoping to overturn the results of the election. They are sending a message that white supremacy is not business as usual, and the transition to borderline fascism will not be smooth nor peaceful. There are more than two possible political affiliations and Americans owe it to themselves to seriously question their political status quo to its roots. Stop perpetuating complacency.
