We’ve all seen the results of the presidency and the only thing that’s on social media this morning is the outrage of my friends, family and colleagues. I feel your pain. I woke up and saw the results and tears just fell. Tears of rage, sadness and pain. I feel the pain of my melanin-filled brothers and sisters. I feel the pain of women. I feel the pain of all minorities, the LGBTQ community and anyone who thought they’d wake up to a different result.
Who I don’t feel the pain of are the ignorant, simple-minded people who call themselves Americans who didn’t even go out and vote. You not only have no say in what’s is currently happening in this country, but you have no respect from others and clearly have no respect for yourself. People made jokes this entire election about Trump running, their plans on not voting, and simply planning on “moving to Africa,” how do you feel now? Have you booked your ticket? Are you still laughing and joking, or have you realized that the joke is now on you? The biggest joke of this whole campaign was DONALD TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN. He stated earlier in the campaign that he ran AS A JOKE, and this joke is now extremely real. I’m sure he’s laughing at this very moment, and he will continue laughing until he is officially in the Oval Office on January 20, 2017.
This is a true American Horror Story.
Wake up, America. This no longer be a joke. People will be calling him, “President Trump,” and that is disgusting. This shouldn’t have been funny yesterday, but people thought it was then, too. Why in the world did people vote, but wasted their write-in vote on jokes. Over 15 thousand write-in votes were made…look at what the ballots were THOWN AWAY on:
Did people really vote for an alcoholic drink, a dead gorilla and TV characters?! Our ancestors were killed in order to give us the right to vote, and this is how people decide to express their civic duty. As a minority being discriminated against during this entire election, you would think that more people would take this serious. Well, SOMEONE took this serious, because a man, endorsed by the Klu Klux Klan is going to be the 45th President of the United States; if that doesn’t make you sick, then it is time for you to reflect on your values.
To those of us who are hurting, continue to push. We can complain, or we can make a change. Continue to fight. We cannot give up this easy. This too shall pass. Contrary to popular belief, this is not the end – stay strong.
