Get over it! Can we just move on!? It will be okay. Stop whining because your candidate lost!
It’s easy to say these things when you don’t have to worry about the safety of yourself and your family. Have you seen the repercussions and boldness of children in elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools post election? Have you seen people fighting other people because they believe they were a Trump supporter or Clinton supporter? Have you seen the social media taunts of “As soon as Trump is in office, I will be glad to purchase you. Don’t worry I will be nice.” Have you heard them chanting, “We hate Muslims, We hate Mexicans! We hate blacks! Send them back!” The audacity of hate! Has anyone said to you “I hate gays! I hope Trump revokes your rights to marriage!” It certainly doesn’t make me feel good. But you wouldn’t know anything about that not would you?
It is more than, to some of us, than a particular candidate lost. It is more than a hurry up and get over it. You want us to hurry up and get over damn near a year and a half of hate-filled, out right disgusting and disturbing promises, threats and insults to cultures, class, race, gender, and etc. You want me to get over a party that is prone to and happy to make things difficult for the working class and minorities in this country? You want me to hold hands and “Kumbaya” with you? I think not. Maybe you don’t have any of these concerns. Maybe you do. Maybe you can easily put them to the side or maybe you can’t. Here is one thing I know for sure and I have said many times to others: You don’t get to decide when another person “let’s go and moves on.” No ma’am and no sir, you do not. And further more, it is wrong for you to invalidate the legitimate concerns of your fellow Americans. It is wrong. You see here is where some have no clue of what it is like to be a minority in this country. Either you understand, don’t understand it, or don’t want to try to understand it.
I don’t speak for ALL minorities, I can only speak for some. And yes, quite a few exercised their right to vote the opposite. It is not a blame on who voted for Trump or who did not. It is not a blame of who went to the polls or not. It’s their right. People are responsible for their own hate and evil. But, it is about backing off and giving others time to figure out how they are going to deal, heal, respond, counteract any policies that affect the well being of others and come together or not. Yes, or not.
