Family Issues

My father and that entire side of my family voted for Trump, because they feel that “Queers, niggers and liberals are ruining this country and Muslims need to get out.”

I publicly stated on social media that I was disappointed that so many people voted for Trump and the hatred and bigotry that went along with that. I said I was ashamed that people I knew and family of mine voted that way. The next day on social media my father disowned me and stated that I was sick and needed help for not standing by my family and my president.

Work Incident

I work at a fish processing factory in Gloucester ,  MA. A coworker, a white male in his 50s, wasn’t  wearing the required plastic gloves at a station. Another coworker, a Dominican-American  woman, a legal citizen, in her 20s, informed him he needed to put his gloves on to handle the product. He responded with slurs, telling her Trump was president now and she would soon be deported. She said he was angry and she felt afraid. She reported him and he’s currently suspended. There were witnesses, luckily. Not sure how it will end but I think he ahould should be fired and that the company should teach employees about no tolerance for hate speech. Since the election last week I’ve also overheard two white women in their 50s, in the locker room talking about ‘counting’ and ‘keeping track’ of muslims.
