Racist Incidents are Happening More and More Across the U S

California woman verbally abuses U.S. citizen, calls him a 'drug dealer' because of his ethnicity
June 25, 2018, 5:16 PM PDT

Esteban Guzman, a 27-year-old full-time systems administrator, often works construction on weekends. He and his mother were clearing a yard in Running Springs, a town located 80 miles east of Los Angeles, when a woman approached them and started to attack them verbally.

Guzman told the Guardian that these types of interactions have become “increasingly regular” since Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election.
The video shows the woman pointing her middle finger in Guzman’s face and calling him a “rapist” and “drug dealer.”
The video, which was originally shared in the early morning of June 25, shows Guzman asking the woman why she hates them. She replies, “Because you’re Mexicans.”

Guzman attempts to tell her that “we’re honest people.”

The woman responds, “Yeah, rapists. And animals. Drug dealers.”
🤓
these types of incidents are sickening.. it just goes to show how the racist attitude of the current POTUS is affecting and attributing to the racial climate in our country..
this posted incident is just one of many that's been happening to people of color.
my question is, "why are these white women fanning the flames of racial hatred?
in the past the majority of white women were known to take a stand against overt racism.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

According to a recent Quinnipac poll, 49% of Americans believe Trump is racist. Did George Wallace and Lester Maddox and Jesse Helms score as high ?

The FBI's report doesn't draw conclusions as to what might be behind this disturbing rise in hate. But it's noteworthy that many of the groups against whom crimes rose by double digits were the focus of inflammatory rhetoric by Donald Trump over the course of his presidential campaign. Likewise, the FBI data shows a sharp rise in bias-motivated incidents in the months around the 2016 election — confirming reports by the Anti-Defamation League and others of a surge of attacks on Muslims and Jews in the wake of Mr. Trump's election.

"Hate crimes are different from other crimes," FBI Director James B. Comey said in a 2014 speech. "They strike at the heart of one's identity." For this reason, it's important that the United States be able to tackle this growing problem with the best data it can gather. The FBI's statistics on hate crimes, while the best we have, are also incomplete — partly because it's up to state and local police departments to decide whether to provide the federal government with their data. What's more, a study by the Bureau of Justice Statistics suggests that many hate-crime victims never report the offense.

Can someone remind her what many of the rapists and thugs looked like when many early, Europeans immigrants came to this country?
This is the kind of ignorance and prejudice many folks like her are taught at home, while refusing to acknowledge their own ancestors’ ugly history, and their racial groups’ present-day ills/crimes.

These are the type of ignorant idiots trump knows that he can put in his pocket, and brainwash into believing anything he says, because he knows the racial ignorance they already harbor. His open prejudice just gives them a pass to express that ignorance.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that since this current POTUS has been in office how there has been an increase in racial incidents. He promotes racial division because of his insecurities and fear of the browning of America. He thinks building a wall and making it harder for Brown and Black immigrants to come here, will stop that from happening. This is why he has used the race card as a main factor, throughout his campaign and presidency. He knows it will stir up enough anger and fear from his supporters, especially Fromm the insecure white nationalists and others who harbor the same racial hatred and ignorance towards the Black and Brown population. The ignorant and racist lady in the vid is just one example of how stupid, idiotic and hateful, many are now ‘openly’ acting out their racial ignorance in public.


Maybe if she had done some homework and research among her racial community, about the heroin epidemic that’s happening in many predominantly, white communities throughout America today, then I’m pretty sure she would have thought twice about assuming that all Hispanic males she encounters, are all drug dealers. She might have learned that there have been and are white drug dealers living within her racial community. Just takes a little effort to do the actual research. Shame on her.

poppys

From a rally in Montana yesterday.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/05/us/politics/trump-montana-rally-warren-tester.html

Taunting Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts, with a refusal to apologize for calling her “Pocahontas,” Mr. Trump imagined a debate during which he would gently throw an ancestry testing kit at Ms. Warren to make her prove the Native American heritage she has controversially claimed.

“We are going to do it gently because we’re the #MeToo generation, so we have to be very careful,” the president said to scattered laughter, adding that he would donate $1 million to charity if Ms. Warren followed through. Mr. Trump, who has faced accusations of sexual assault and harassment, announced earlier in the day that Bill Shine, who was ousted from Fox News over his handling of the network’s harassment scandals, would take a position on his administration’s communications staff.


“Democrats want anarchy, they really do,” Mr. Trump said, adding that he intentionally called the party “the Democrat Party” because “Democratic Party sounds too good.”

“And they don’t know who they’re playing with, folks,” he added.

As the crowd cheered and pounded on the bleachers during the roughly 70-minute speech at the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, Mr. Trump embellished on his favorite exaggerations and falsehoods, including his margin of victory in the Electoral College, the country’s trade deficits and crowd size.

this is ongoing waste of time for the police is a puzzlement imo.

Cops shut down white woman who called 911 on black real estate investor

May 16, 2018 | 3:04pm
: https://www.google.com/am...estor/amp/

-
Two police officers in Tennessee backed up a black real estate investor after a white neighbor called cops on him — the latest example of racial profiling incidents across the country.

In a 9-minute video posted to YouTube, real estate investor Michael Hayes detailed his May 5 visit to a home in Memphis he was inspecting before repairs were made.

“So we’re out here at a house now, one of where we’re under contract to pick up on, and for whatever reason, the neighbor has called the police on us,” Hayes said to the camera before asking the woman if the cops said when they’d be coming. “I mean, this is what we go through — [a] young black man out here trying to do what’s right and we get the police called on us.”


Hayes told the woman he had every right to be there, showing her his investment contract and a statement from the owner that he had permission to enter the home. Still, she was unmoved and called police, Hayes said.

“I’m really not sure what she wants me to do other than leave the neighborhood,” Hayes continued.

Hayes kept recording as two police officers responded to the home, where they quickly determined that Hayes was, in fact, allowed to be there.

“You keep the camera rolling,” a white male officer told Hayes. “If you have any problems with her, what I want you to do is call me back over here and she will go to jail today. I don’t fool around.”

The unidentified woman then claimed she had friends in the sheriff’s department, prompting the officer to quickly shut her down.


“I don’t care if you’re friends with the president,” the cop replied. “You’re going to let him do what he’s going to do. Listen to me — if you try to do anything to stop him, I’m going to take you to jail.”

Still not satisfied, the woman told Hayes to “hurry up” and do what he had to do and then “get out” of the neighborhood.

“No, he can take all day,” the cop replied. “He can do it all night, it doesn’t matter. He’s in control, he’s got a contract, so that is what it is.”

Concerned about his safety, Hayes then asked the cops to stick around for a few minutes while he took his pictures.

In a statement to The Post, the Memphis Police Department said the officers seen in the video were “examples of the vast majority” of cops throughout the department.


“Our officers will respond to all calls of service and are trained and expected to respond in a professional manner,” the statement read. “Regarding this specific incident, our officers responded and handled the situation accordingly. We are thankful to Mr. Hayes for recording a positive interaction with MPD officers and for sharing the true image of what our officers represent.”

The incident was the latest interaction in which neighbors called the police on law-abiding black citizens they deemed suspicious. Five days prior to the incident, a group of black filmmakers in California said they were stopped by cops while checking out an Airbnb unit after a white neighbor assumed they “were stealing from the house,” one of the women in the group posted on Facebook.

An Oregon state lawmaker said this week that she was reported to the police as a “suspicious person” who might be a burglar while she was talking to constituents in a suburban neighborhood southeast of Portland.

The lawmaker, Representative Janelle Bynum, who is the only black member of the Oregon House of Representatives, said that after canvassing more than two dozen homes in the Clackamas neighborhood on Tuesday, she was taking notes near a driveway around 5 p.m. when a deputy with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office arrived. The deputy said a caller had reported someone going door to door and using a cellphone “as if they were casing the neighborhood for houses that were unoccupied and they would come back later and rob them,” Ms. Bynum said.

From a rally in Montana yesterday.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/05/us/politics/trump-montana-rally-warren-tester.html

Taunting Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts, with a refusal to apologize for calling her “Pocahontas,” Mr. Trump imagined a debate during which he would gently throw an ancestry testing kit at Ms. Warren to make her prove the Native American heritage she has controversially claimed.

“We are going to do it gently because we’re the #MeToo generation, so we have to be very careful,” the president said to scattered laughter, adding that he would donate $1 million to charity if Ms. Warren followed through. Mr. Trump, who has faced accusations of sexual assault and harassment, announced earlier in the day that Bill Shine, who was ousted from Fox News over his handling of the network’s harassment scandals, would take a position on his administration’s communications staff.


“Democrats want anarchy, they really do,” Mr. Trump said, adding that he intentionally called the party “the Democrat Party” because “Democratic Party sounds too good.”

“And they don’t know who they’re playing with, folks,” he added.

As the crowd cheered and pounded on the bleachers during the roughly 70-minute speech at the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, Mr. Trump embellished on his favorite exaggerations and falsehoods, including his margin of victory in the Electoral College, the country’s trade deficits and crowd size.

Delusion on a mass scale.

As Joseph Goebbels said, if you tell a BIG enough lie, and tell it often, many will fall for it...

Yes, Thank You, Benni.


You both are welcome. The data is easy to find. But as 13ckj13 said, you really don't need the data to support this truth, the evidence is in every reported incident daily. And those reports are becoming too common place.

Nope, and it is SICKENING that some are still defending this dangerous abomination.

According to FBI report released in 2017, they started seeing a rise in hate crimes starting in 2016 (when Trump was running):

Thanks for the links.

I are to say that the statement that they are seeing a rise in hate crimes starting 2016 is crap.

2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018
Hate Crime; Total Offenses 9168 no data 7699 7240 6718 6933 6418 6837 7321 no data no data
2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018
Hate Crime; Total Offenses 9168 no data 7699 7240 6718 6933 6418 6837 7321 no data no data

There was an increase from 6837 in 2015 to 7321 in 2016, but if you go further back, you see that the 2016 rise falls within the 'normal' fluctuation range of 2010 to 2016

Love to know how you get from a woman calling a hispanic a drugs dealer to a topic title "Racist Incidents are Happening More and More Across the U S" Maybe due to the unscientific statement in the article that "the racist attitude of the current POTUS is affecting and attributing to the racial climate in our country" Got any data?
do your homework dude..trump had stated this racist rhetoric continuously as seen in the following video. the same bu-sheet the woman said in the video in the initial post of this thread.. On Date June 16, 2015 : https://www.realclearpoli...order.html Trump: "Mexico Not Sending Us Their Best; Criminals, Drug Dealers And Rapists Are Crossing Border" [Edited 7/6/18 6:26am]
