This Video of a Young Black Woman Being Thrown Out of Trump Rally Is Terrifying

+

It’s no secret that rallies for presumptive Republican nominee for the presidency Donald Trump are festering swamps of hate and prejudice, and the news that 30 young black students were thrown out of one such rally in Georgia on Monday was bad enough. But now comes this video from Tuesday in Kentucky of a young black woman being verbally and physically assaulted by throngs of Trump supporters while she’s being ejected from the event.

I’d say nothing is surprising at this point in the election cycle, but this is enough to make even the most dispirited, jaded observer tear your hair out.

“In the old days, which isn’t so long ago, when we were less politically correct — thank god it’s over now. Today you have to be so kind, so nice…” Trump can be heard saying over a chorus of boos, as the non-threatening or combative woman is literally being shoved by an old man.”

As if it couldn’t get worse, Shiya Nwanguma, a University of Lousiville student, said “I was called a nigger and a cunt, and got kicked out,” after the event in a video posted to Facebook.
