I work in a predominately White conservative suburb about 20 miles outside of Philadelphia, PA. Leading up to the election, the TRUMP/PENCE lawn signs were sprouting up wild. Now needless to say most of the people I work with are White and conservative, and if the proliferation of Trump signs is any indication I can safely say that most of them voted for Donald Trump.
Now if you're a person of color in a situation like mine, surrounded by conservative White co-workers, you may have noticed a sudden shift in their attitude towards you. Think about the interactions you've had with these co-workers over the past three days. Have you noticed a certain awkwardness when they encounter you? Perhaps a certain reluctance? Well hold on to that observation for a bit, because I'm going to come back to this.

Now, I'm going to assume that most of the folks out there protesting actually voted for Hillary the day before, and if you're among that group then you can feel free to skip this post entirely. Nothing here applies to you. However, if you're one of those folks protesting, yet couldn't be bothered to go out and vote, or you did that cute college hippie protest vote thing for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson, then I got some words for you.
WHAT THE HOLY FUCK!?

This may very well come off as a rant, as I'm not really sure how I wish to express myself here. I'm still trying to process what happened to this country as it has just elected an avowed racist, an admitted sexist and adulterer, a hateful xenophobic bigot, and outright buffoon President of the United States. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing President Elect Donald Trump...White America's shame.
