From New York to California, Chicago to Washington, protestors took to the streets and stayed steady in New York outside of Trump Tower marching to Union station. Standing on street signs and climbing utility poles.

Authorities said at least 6,000 people were marching through the streets, setting fires and chanting “Not my president” “Fuck Trump, he’s not my president” and “We Reject the president elect”

From Boston, MA to Seattle, Washington protestors are taking their anger and frustrations of the outcome of this election to the streets.

So the question is, how was Trump elected? Did voter suppression play a role in this election?

In his post-election victory speech, Trump said that he would be the president for all Americans, and that it was “time to come together as one united people.” This will be a challenge especially since he ran his campaign on a platform of turmoil, hatred, bigotry and sexism.

    I think ppl hve a genuine reason to be hurt or upset.. shidd I was last night but I had to gather myself & put some things into perspective. Trump created a campaign based of fear & bigotry so I do believe the response is fitting .. logical maybe not but fitting.

      Yvonne,
      I can understand your solace even feel it to a certain degree. The only thing I can is that our sons have been slaughtered for many generations, just recently they have become hashtags. We had a black Potus and it didn’t stop that. so O_o

    I am not surprised. Did you hear Eric Garner’s daughter when she said she would not vote? She and others were failed by the system who didn’t bring criminals to justice. If Obama didn’t do anything why would they even trust Hillary?? The South is really hurt but mostly by this failed system

      Part of the failure is people who don’t vote, therefore they don’t get called for jury duty, which limits an accused person’s chances of getting judged by a jury of his/her peers. They wind up with people who have no empathy for their situation. I wonder if she voted before her father was killed?

    Black people vote with their emotions. Black people who know how to use the system vote with their minds. I wanted a Republican president and Congress set up to wipe away all the damage Obama did. No more Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, Gay marriage. A Republican on the Supreme Court. We have to clean house. Also Trump is a scary figure to the world. He will crack down on terrorism and keep us all safe.

    They should be angry at the Democratic Party for allowing Hillary and the DNC to hijack the nomination by not allowing a far less controversial candidate challenge Trump…

    And, maybe Tuesday would’ve been a more appealing outcome for them.

        True indeed, but like Dr. Shabazz indicated on COS, Hilary was tripping on her ego and made some major mistakes. she thought she look good because of Trump’s bigotry and ignorance and that shit back fired on her ass. she realized that America is more racist and more divisive than she ever imagined.
