The Trump Affect: “You Can Hang a N*gger From a Tree” Sign in Pittsburg


Saturday on Twitter, James Thompson of Pittsburgh, California, tweeted a picture his sister texted him of what appears to be a home with a banner reading, “You can hang a n*gger from a tree, equal rights he’ll never see!”

Since Trump has been elected to be the next President of the United States overt racism is on the rise. But the surprising part is the Pittsburg Police Department released a statement Sunday afternoon stating that, “The homeowner is an African American male who has continued to display offensive signs. The legal effort is ongoing.”

The sign was not just reported to the local officials but the FBI as well. As we once stated white supremacy does not only exist in white people but blacks as well.
