The racists have a boost now that the nation has elected one of the nation’s most prominent white supremacists. From Jewish Centers receiving bomb threats, to Muslims killed in Kansas by white supremacists and his chief of staff Stephen Bannon a well-known white supremacist. So, it was only a matter of time before the racists got to harassing blacks, where they always end up.
On Tuesday, just one day after Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos came under fire for calling historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) “pioneers of school choice,” Howard University was vandalized.
“Welcome to the Trump Plantation,” the graffiti reads. “Overseer: Wayne A. I. Frederick.”
DeVos issued a statement on Monday praising HBCUs as “real pioneers when it comes to school choice.” The irony of the statement is that HBCUs were created as a response to the fact that African-American students didn’t have the same freedom of choice for schools that their white counterparts did.
