The Con's election led to 'barrage of hate' report finds Southern Poverty Law Center counts 867 hate

across US in 10 days since election, with many targeting immigrants, African Americans and Muslims

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has counted 867 hate incidents in the 10 days after the US election, a report released Tuesday found, a phenomenon it partly blamed on the rhetoric of Donald Trump.

The advocacy group collected reports of incidents from media outlets and its own #ReportHate page. SPLC said it was not able to confirm all reports but believed the number of actual incidents was far higher, as according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics most hate crimes go unreported.

Richard Cohen, SPLC’s president, blamed the recent surge in hate crimes on Trump and his divisive language throughout the campaign.

“Mr Trump claims he’s surprised his election has unleashed a barrage of hate across the country,” said Cohen in a statement on Tuesday. “But he shouldn’t be. It’s the predictable result of the campaign he waged. Rather than feign surprise, Mr Trump should take responsibility for what’s occurring, forcefully reject hate and bigotry, reach out to the communities he’s injured, and follow his words with actions to heal the wounds his words have opened.”

Trump’s name or one of his slogans was directly invoked in several instances. SPLC categorized 43 recorded incidents as “Trump-General”, where attackers used Trump’s name but it was unclear what bias motivated the attack.

4. Over heard a exchange

yesterday at a local Wal-Mart,older White fellow berating a Cashier who happened to be African American,something to the way the young mans hair style and Trump will change that. Congratulated the young fellow with the way he deflected the stupid comments. BTW,the Head Cashier came over to the Young fellow and congratulated him on his ability to withstand the verbal out burst. Wow.
