First Lady-elect Melania Trump wants to stop bullying, but children all over America are being bullied today because of her husband.
“We must find better ways to honor and support the basic goodness of our children, especially in social media,” Mrs. Trump said at a Pennsylvania rally last week. “It will be one of the main focuses of my work, if I am privileged enough to become your first lady.”
Ironically, the International Bullying Prevention Association conference took place during the first part of this week and during Election Day.
“We know that traditional bullying results in higher rates of anxiety and depression and even higher risks of suicidal ideation and lower self-esteem and the research shows that we’re seeing similar impacts from cyber-bullying as well. It’s most likely to be harmful when there is that mixed harassment of bullying and cyber-bullying that occur together,” IBPA president Patricia Agatston said.
In a single day, Raw Story has reported on three cases of pro-Trump related bullying of students. The first occurred when students in Minnesota were greeted with "F*ck n*ggers" written on their door. A Michigan middle school had a small group of children chanting "build that wall," while their fellow students, who are Latino, were crying. Another school, this one in Pennsylvania, had students marching with Donald Trump signs while chanting "white power." We also covered a story of Trump supporters, who filmed themselves driving through Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton's alma mater and harassing black students. George Zimmerman was also kicked out of a bar for calling someone a "n*gger lover," though he wasn't embolden by Trump. That's just who he is.
Thursday, we covered a south Philly neighborhood subjected to Nazi graffiti. A Utah man told a neighbor boy, "get out of here n*gger" — then attacked the boy's dad with stun cane.
Friday, a report came in of an Afghanistan war veteran, who was rammed with a truck by Trump supporters. He was holding a sign reading "Veterans Against Trump." The supporters tried to engage with him but when they were told police were on their way they fled the scene. Friday, we also learned that a Florida High School now has "white" and "colored" water fountain after students put up signs.
While there have not been many of these, there are incidents of anti-Trump violence. In the case of a Los Angeles school, Trump supporters were attacked and one principal is on leave after anti-Trump attacks. Another with anti-Trump protesters in College Park. Another man was also robbed and assaulted.
Saturday, Raw Story wrote about a teacher caught taunting a Latina student and her parents in Los Angels. In Gwinnett County, Georgia, a Muslim high school teacher received a note from her student telling her to hang herself with her own "headscarf." The famous aren't safe either. Trump supporters threatened and harassed some of the stars of HBO’s "Silicon Valley" at a Los Angeles bar.
Sunday, the phrase "Hang a n****r from a tree" was painted over a sign that said "equal rights." Police are taking action against it.
Monday, Raw Story reported an incident where "Heil Trump" was painted. The vandals attacked an Indiana church with a swastika and anti-gay slur while praising Trump. We also learned on Monday that Donald Trump supporters partied in KKK garb to celebrate election, Connecticut officials said. Another incident occurred where a male Trump supporter sucker-punched a woman after a political argument. He then left the scene before police could arrive.
Thus far Melania Trump has not commented on any of these incidents.
Unfortunately, there have been so many of these stories we decided to begin compiling a list of them here:
Here's a tweet from a young black student who captured a white boy calling him "a n*gger" and said that he "should be pickin' cotton."

Yarden Katz, a fellow in the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School tweeted about a white postal worker in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who was filling up his USPS truck at a gas station. The man shouted at Katz, "Go back to your country. This is Trump land. You ain't getting your check no more." Katz noted before posting the report that "corporate journalists have repeatedly failed the public by catering to elite interests. This election's coverage is only latest failure."

DeWitt Junior High School in Lansing, Michigan was the sight of another attack. White students formed a human wall and refused to allow Latino students to enter the school. Later that morning other students also laid down to form a wall in the hallways and chanted "build that wall" though no one was blocked at that time, The Lansing State Journal reported.
Zoie Gilpin, a sophomore at the University of Oregon, went to a Black Student Union meeting on campus Wednesday night. He found three young people wearing blackface on campus and recorded the video below:
Racial messages have also been found in an off-campus apartment near the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, WKBT reported. The message was written in black on a white door and said, "Go home n*gger."
"I think the people that who are sometimes saying that this is exaggerated or you're making too much out of it, that they really need to take a good look at these things, because this is true hate, and it has no place on our campus or community,” UW-La Crosse Chancellor Joe Gow said.
A message of unity taken from a quote from activist Shaun King was painted onto a sign. It read, “Dear Muslims, immigrants, women, disabled, LGBTQ and all people of color, we love you boldly and proudly. We will endure." Someone spray-painted Trump 2016 over it.
Mr. King has also begun listing these incidents on his Twitter feed.
This woman was pumping gas at a station in Sandy Springs, a suburb outside of Atlanta, Georgia. "I'm so tired of you uppity f*cking n*ggers!" the man shouted.
"Hey n*gger. Pick that up. Keep my streets clean," one white Trump supporter shouted to Black woman in Indiana, Mr. King reported.
King posted another screen capture of a Facebook post about a student at Plano East Senior High, in Plano, Texas who also had her hijab ripped off. King remarked he's received at least 50 incidents of this over the last two days.
Mr. King posted a screen capture of a note he received from July Thompson at Townson University in Maryland. Two Black men in her class were followed by white students on campus shouting the n-word. Mr. King conveyed this wasn't the first person from the campus to reach out to him.
A Latino mother in Ventura, California reported seeing 5th graders proudly chanting, "Build that wall."
"Go back to Asia," said one white man to an American citizen. Mr. King confessed his in-box is flooded with 3,000+ emails of similar incidents nationwide.
One of the more heartbreaking stories Mr. King tweeted came from a nurse at a cardiology facility. A patient of hers was an Iranian woman, who has been a citizen since 1986. She had to have a heart monitor put on her, which included multiple wires going in and out of her clothing and connecting to a small black box about the size of a cell phone. She asked if she could have a letter to carry with her from the doctor's office so people wouldn't think she was carrying a bomb and murder her.
Then there was this:

I had a rather large amount of African American students come into the office to be consoled by me, crying for their friends and loved ones.
