A few days ago, President-elect Donald Trump acknowledged that his supporters are often “nasty,” “vicious,” and “violent.” In a recent incident, a driver went on a brutally racist rant against a group of school kids in New York City.
According to the New York Post, children were in front of Crispus Attucks Elementary School in Bedford-Stuyvesant because of a fire drill around 10:30 a.m. last Tuesday, Dec. 13. Because of the fire drill, motorists were not allowed to drive through the group of students. One man driving a white Nissan didn’t take the news too well, and went on a racist rant against the kids.
“F*ck Black Lives Matter. F*ck black lives, they don’t matter,” the man allegedly yelled. In addition to his racist remarks, the man also made it clear that he’s a Trump supporter: “You f*cking gorillas and baby monkeys, we voted for Trump. He’s going to build a wall and all you gorillas are going back.”
Then, the man drove his car through the school children anyway, “placing them in great danger,” according to Patch. Fortunately, no one was injured.
The school’s student body is 87 percent black, 9 percent Hispanic, and 2.6 percent white, according to the school’s website.
The NYPD is investigating the incident as a case of reckless endangerment.
Last month, after the election of Donald Trump, there was an “alarming pattern of hate incidents,” according to two reports from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
