#WouldMakeMeFeelSafe

As I logged on to my Twitter this morning, I noticed the trending hashtag, #WouldMakeMeFeelSafe. The hashtag is related to Donald Trump’s recent win of the presidency in America.

During Trump’s campaign, violence, racism, sexism, and xenophobia were all highlighted in some of Trump’s speeches and by some of his supporters. Now that Trump has won the election, several Americans are fearful.

POC, minorities, women and the LGBTQ community have all been using social media to protest against Trump’s win and the violence that has been promoted.

The first tweet that is listed under the hashtag says, “A future free of violence and racism #WouldMakeMeFeelSafe.”

A discouraging tweet by Dr. Tommy (@ThereIsaidso) can also be found under the hashtag.

Another tweet that displays the fear that some Americans have is displayed below.

The tweet above displays the fear that several American women have since Trump’s old comment about grabbing women inappropriately was released by the media. Unfortunately, the fears that several Americans have are legitimate concerns.

As a fellow woman, I understand how common it is to get verbally assaulted by random men on the street. Although I do not personally promote the idea that Trump is for violence, it is important for Trump to acknowledge the fears of his American citizens and take every action possible to ensure the safety of all Americans.
