When historians eventually compile their accounts of the sexual-predator-television-hack who became President of the United States they will pen entire books specifically about the suffocating cloud of racism that descended on the country during this time, encouraged and exacerbated by Donald Trump.
Every day seems to bring a story of some new hateful white supremacist who — often emboldened by the ascendancy of an avowed bigot to the White House — carries out some kind of heinous attack on a minority.
One of the latest in this long string of horrifying incidents occurred in a Lousiana Wal-Mart on November 29th. Two white men were caught on camera, terrorizing a black woman, according to The News Star.
A report of the incident relays that as the woman went to leave the store and load her goods into her vehicle the two men approached her, unprompted. The racists proceeded to scream at her and call her a “n*gger.”
Weathering the abuse, the woman tried to load her purchases faster and escape. She took off in her vehicle, and one of the men pursued her on foot before allegedly ramming an empty shopping cart into her car, inflicting over $1,000 in damage. The men then fled like the cowards they are.
The West Monroe Police pulled and spread an image from the captured footage which clearly shows both men’s faces. The perpetrators have now been dentified as 22-year-old Dylan Reynolds and 24-year-old Michael Walters through the use of social media, calls from anonymous tipsters, and their very own Facebook pages. They now face hate crime charges. Each of the bigots has their bond set at $20,000.
Hopefully, the two are apprehended soon, because they can spread more of their violent hate. This kind of bigotry must be rooted out wherever it springs up and those who perpetrate it must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
