The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reported Tuesday that more than 400 incidents of harassment or intimidation have occurred since Donald Trump won the presidential election last week.

More than 130 of the incidents were anti-immigrant involved, according to SPLC. Anti-black incidents and anti-LGBTQ incidents were also reported in high numbers.

Most harassment occurred in K-12 schools, followed by businesses and universities.

The SPLC said it based its report off information from news reports, social media and direct submissions to the group, reports The It did not follow-up to confirm reports made through individual submissions.

Confirmed reports from NBC News include: The words “Trump Nation, Whites Only” found written on the walls of the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour in Silver Spring, Md. on Sunday; A campus safety alert issued Sunday by the University of Michigan after a Muslim student told police a white male said he would “set her on fire,” if she didn’t remove her hijab; and a police investigation of graffiti reading “Make America White Again,” on the wall of a softball field in New York, which appeared just hours after Trump won the election.

According to the FBI’s annual “Hate Crime Statistics” report released Monday, 2015 saw a 6 percent increase in hate crimes. Almost 60 percent of those hate crime victims were targeted because of their race or ethnicity.

  1. You’d actually have to go to a legitimate news outlet for this, but did anyone notice that Trump has turned down a Presidential salary of $400K. Insisting on doing the job of serving his country for free? L, any comments?

  2. !!!AMERICAHAS SPOKEN IN ITS WAY!!! ((HOWD. Trump ended the U.S status quo?)) Everyone has been blind. But Gov. Bob Ehrlich, Michael Moore andothers, as well as your reading-writer saw coming the undeniable reality. Eventhough, history has stepped on my pen because I used to say! Only two kinds offolks can’t talk predominantly: are Politicians and Businessmen but the upshotof the 2016 election just challenged my faculty to change that avowal. On theother hand, back to July, I made a statement reminding the Nicholas Machiaveltechniques on D. Trump’s scheme. Mg, at that tme my surroundings cliched me asa chauvinism backer; although afterward, some of them acknowledged thedifference! In fatc, I am just aware of common sense such behavior helps me tosplit my emotion from the reality. It’s indeed about time to wonder what realsmartness is! In the course of that scarce election, it seems all and sundrywere deeply mistaken wherever ‘’Stupidity inaudibly turns to Stylishness’’. Whatpowered D.J.Trump’s wise the top of establishment? The whole society has been utterlyunsighted. True stratum: Sam Wang, professor at Princeton University, haspromised to eat a bug, yes Bug if Trump succeeds. Subsequently, at a TVshow the prof, retained his announcement; Why Experience must be old? Only wayto see what or unthinkable is coming, we must be able to divide feelings fromrealities. There’s a big difference between Knowledge and Intelligence. Forfuture, let’s be smarter than any state of mind… Versaint
