One of my dearest friends was accosted on his way to work by a man with TRUMP scrawled across his tank top, demanding my friend prove he was American by dancing with a hula hoop or pay the guy money because he’s “higher up the food chain”. Oh, and of course “go back where you came from”. Obviously the dude was super unhinged, but motherfuck. My friend was adopted from Colombia as an infant and lived in Switzerland until he was 7 when his mom moved him to Arizona. He holds dual US/Swiss citizenships. His first language was French. Not that any of that even matters, no one should be accosted like that regardless of their background. Just fuck this world for emboldening these fucks and giving them a script to work from.
