Racism was never gone. It was just silent. And elections are proving that. Like in the 2016 elections, we watched the KKK and anti-semitic groups once again gain awareness and make a stand. This time it’s happening in New Jersey. A horrifying poster/flyer was passed out. I think it’s pretty disgusting that in 2017 we still have to deal with problems like this. We thought hatred for immigrants, jews, muslims and blacks was gone but instead it’s making it’s way to being a trend again.
The graphic on the poster/flyer showed a mock off of the Trump campaign Moto that read “Make Edison Great Again”. On the sides of that is a picture of the candidates Jerry She and Falguni Patel, who happen to be Chinese and Indian. Under the pictures is a deport stamp. And the writing under that explains how who ever made this was triggered over the fact that their baseball fields were becoming cricket fields.
The writing also reads “The Chinese and Indians are taking over our town”, exclamation mark. Thus it is clear that who ever made this is beyond aggravated at the fact that his/her town is no longer mostly white. This person, still stuck in 1860, doesn’t seem to understand the trend of immigration in the United States. Because to his conservative values, he/she must conserve the white to not white ratio. The creator of this writes “Chinese school! Indian school!”, implying the fact that they are loosing their white schools, because how possibly could schools become mostly full of immigrants?
