Donald Trump‘s shocking presidential win is still being processed on both sides of the aisle and across the nation, but there’s a group of people preparing for the rise in white racist thugs trying to flex. According to a new report, gun sales among Black people and other minority groups has spiked recently after recent news of hate crime attacks.
NBC News reports:
After Donald Trump’s win, Yolanda Scott is upgrading the crowbar she keeps in her purse to a small-caliber pistol.
Scott, an African-American, is one of many minorities who have been flocking to gun stores to protect themselves, afraid Trump’s victory will incite more hate crimes.
“You feel that racists now feel like they can attack us just because the president is doing it,” one gun shop owner told NBC News.
Gun store owners told NBC News that since November 8 they’re seeing up to four times as many black and minority customers —and black gun groups are reporting double the normal number of attendees at their meetings since the election.
Basically, it’s “run up if you want” season for any hate-mongers who want to pop off at Black and minority folks this holiday season. As the Wu-Tang Clan famously said in song, “Protect Ya Neck.”
