As if the election results were not terrifying enough—the Ku Klux Klan plans on celebrating President Elect Trump in North Carolina on December 3.
According to the News Observer, details on the rally are scarce, but it will be held by The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which is based in Pelham – a small community about 45 minutes north of Burlington, near the Virginia border. On their website, the group writes that a “klavalkade Klan parade” will take place in an undisclosed location.
Snopes recently confirmed that a spokeswoman for the group, “Amanda,” confirmed that the parade was happening, but wouldn’t reveal which city it in the battleground state it take place.
The Trump campaign has to comment on this parade or denounce it.
Prison Stocks Surge Less Than 24 Hours After Trump Is Elected President
The Trump effect is real folks.
According to Bloomberg, the Corrections Corporations of America – the parent company for thousands of private prisons – saw an estimated 60 percent increase in their stocks on Wednesday morning.
“Private prisons would likely be a clear winner under Trump, as his administration will likely rescind the DOJ’s contract phase-out and ICE capacity to house detainees will come under further stress,” an analyst from Heights Security, LLC said.
This is shocking given that POTUS recently created a mandate against private prisons a few months ago, but under a Trump administration that could easily be reversed.
[WATCH] White Students In Michigan Chant “Build A Wall” In Front of Latino Students
Hatred isn’t just spewed from adults, but from children too.
According to the Detroit News a video caught a group of white middle school students from Royal Oak Middle School in Michigan chanting, “Build the wall,” during lunch the day after Donald Trump was elected.
As soon as the chants began, seventh-grader Josie Ramon, 12, said she pulled out her phone and shared with her mother.
“I knew I wanted evidence I could show my mom,” Josie said. “It’s so unbelievably wrong. I had no tolerance of it so I recorded it.“
“Tears were running down my face,” the Mexican-American added.
“I was so upset. A friend went to the bathroom crying. Everybody was chanting along with it. She was scared. She looked really upset. I felt really bad for her.“
“This happened today at Royal Oak Middle School in Royal Oak, Michigan,” wrote Dee Perez-Scott, who posted the video on Facebook on Wednesday.
“It is so sad. Latino children were crying. The taunts, the ‘Build that Wall’ with such bullying power and hate from children to children. Just horrifying!”
The video has since gone viral, with more than 5 million views. School officials said they are aware of the issue and dealing with it.
“We need to work towards understanding, not scoring points, and we need to find a way to move forward that respects and values each and every member of our community,” said Royal Oak Schools Superintendent Shawn Lewis-Lakin.
“We will be working on this in school today.”
No child should have to encounter that type of treatment in a place that is supposed to be safe.
