TRUMP VICTORY EMBOLDENS WACKOS AND EXTREMISTS
The election of Donald Trump has, right or wrongly, accurately or inaccurately, intentionally or unintentionally, been viewed as showing widespread public support for white supremacy, white nationalism and xenophobia. All sorts of wackos have come out of the shadows. The alt-right and similar groups are upping their profiles. Here's the hail Trump, Hitler salute video and commentary http://www.today.com/video/-hail-trump-video-of-alt-right-group-celebrating-trump-s-victory-spurs-controversy-815083587551. Trump has disavowed racism, and asked extremists to stop it, but the genie is out the bottle.
"The nonprofit director whose controversial “ape in heels” comment about first lady Michelle Obama propelled a small West Virginia town into an embarrassing national spotlight has been fired from her job."

Given Trumps appointments to the Cabinet and other positions, Republican strength in Congress, and this environment, it could be a rough four years for minorities, the poor and women.
