After Trump's win, reports of racist graffiti, hate crimes mushroom in U.S.

Washington D.C. [U.S.], Nov. 11 : After Donald Trump's presidential win, fears of intolerance and racist, hate crime have become a reality for some Americans as reports of incidents including racist graffiti in schools and Muslims being bullied are emerging from across the country.

While Trump has been accused of fostering xenophobia and Islamophobia, some of his supporters have used his words as justification to carry out hateful acts, CNN reports.

Student Moses Karngbaye said he was terrified to see racist graffiti sprawled inside a bathroom in his Minnesota high school.

"#Go back to Africa" and "Make America great again," someone wrote on a toilet paper dispenser at Maple Grove Senior High School.

Is Trump following Obama's footsteps?

New York [USA], Nov. 8 : Comparing incumbent US President Barack Obama with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may look bizarre to any American. However, the duo indeed has something in common from a political perspective.

Trump has been reckless with his words in many of his speeches, leading many to believe that racism is at the core of his campaign while Obama being the first elected black President in the US history stands quite opposite to Trump's assertion so far.

But what Trump has said is on the same issues and frames that Obama raised in 2008 and 2012. The Republican nominee has, however, changed the story lines, writes the New York Times.
