New York, new york: Making America react again

So this is how the newly elected President is making America great again : people are united against racism, in all its forms. 

Lets face it , Donald Trump did not bring racism to America, it had existed a long time ago; it was the America that did not let in the Jewish refugees during ww2, it was the America that was not hiring Irish immigrants, it was the America that had slaverly long after most countries in the world had abolished it, it was America where African americans had been lynched and other minority groups attacked , it was always a problem and it was not going away during an African American president time either..but now at least people are reacting, they do not want the ban of an entire group of people, which should not be compared to any other group just not generalised and stigmitized, and now people are actively wiping out the hate messages and not accepting them passively nor silently, if this is Donald Trump’s contribution to society, then it is indeed a blessed lesson to Americans to wake up before it is too late and to not accept racism in any shape or form! 

Let us hope the protests continue and no matter how many hijackers that want to tie it to other causes, not all of them wholesome, let us hope that Americans will reject racism and make America tolerant again ! 

New York (CNN)Gregory Locke was enjoying his Saturday night after dinner with friends in Manhattan when he boarded the No. 1 subway train at 50th Street to head uptown.

Almost immediately, he knew something was up.
“Everybody was sitting there stunned,” said Locke, a New York attorney originally from Atlanta, Georgia. “It wasn’t until the doors closed behind me that I saw it on the windows of the doors.”
Someone had used a Sharpie to scrawl swastikas and hate-filled graffiti all over the subway car: “Jews belong in the oven,” “Destroy Islam,” “Heil Hitler.”

Passengers looked uncomfortable and unsure of what to do, Locke said. But then a man stood up and said, “Hand sanitizer gets rid of Sharpie pen. We need alcohol,” Locke told CNN.

That man was Jared Nied, a chef at a Manhattan restaurant.
“The woman across the car saw me looking at the graffiti, asked me if I could do something and offered a tissue. That’s when it clicked that sanitizer would work,” Nied told CNN via text message Sunday.
Then, “everyone started digging into their pockets and bags for hand sanitizer and wipes,” Locke said.
Nied and other passengers got to work on erasing the graffiti. He told CNN they were “satisfied in just doing the right thing.”

“It was very uplifting to see everyone come together like that,” said Locke. The attorney posted an account of the incident on Facebook and it quickly went viral.
As of midday Sunday Locke’s post had been shared more than 250,000 times and was even noticed by former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, who tweeted about it.
