Here Are 5 Times Donald Trump’s Name Was Used By Racists In Schools

Ana De Santiago/ Facebook

Ever since Donald Trump announced his run for presidency last year by calling Mexican immigrants drug dealers and rapists, his supporters have taken to using his name as an insult lobbed at Latinos and other minorities. In some cases, this has resulted in violence. In Kansas, for example, a white motorcyclist yelled “Trump” at a Latino and Muslim man before assaulting them, and in Boston, where two Trump supporters beat up a homeless man. Unfortunately, invoking the GOP frontrunner’s name in the name of bigotry has sullied our schools, as well. We’ve compiled a list of five separate incidents where “Trump” was used to insult minority students.

As part of Kappa Alpha Order’s (KA) annual tradition, the fraternity at Tulane University…

On April 7, the Tulane Chapter of the Kappa Alpha fraternity erected a wall using sandbags, a tradition that kicks off the fraternity’s annual “Old Ball” festivities. For this year, they decided to decorate their wall with Donald Trump’s name and his “Make America Great Again” slogan. The wall was recently taken down and the fraternity issued a statement claiming satire. We’re inclined to believe them. After all, it’s not like predominantly white fraternities in the South have ever said or done anything racist.

We are deeply disturbed by reports this morning that hooded male adults were seen writing pro-Trump propaganda as well…

Every year, UCSD welcomes admitted students to visit campus for an event called “Triton Day.” For three to five men wearing hoodies, this was the perfect opportunity to spread their message of hate. College students using chalk to show their love for Donald Trump is a larger national trend — known as “The Chalkening” — but what sets USCD apart is that in addition to pro-Trump messaging, these unidentified men also wrote “build the wall,” “deport them all,” “f**k Mexicans,” and “Mexico will pay.” Even worse, they scribbled it in front of the UCSD Raza Resource Center.

During an April 7 soccer game, a group of students from Elkhorn High School in Elkhorn, Wisconsin — which is predominantly white — started chanting “Donald Trump! Build the wall” at Latina and black players from Beloit Memorial High School. The chants resulted in several players breaking down crying in the middle of the field.

Here’s the frightening thing: The chant was started by three elementary-aged students, at least according to Elkhorn District Administrator Jason Tadlock. This just goes to show you that xenophobia and racism knows no age.

Students at Ohio University woke up April 7 to a wall graffitied with “Trump 2016” and “Build The Wall.” According to the Athens Post, multiple members of various fraternities and sororities were at least partially responsible. Although none of the students involved will be disciplined (they remain anonymous), national fraternity and sorority organizations have cancelled Ohio University’s Greek Week in favor of events aimed at stressing the importance of diversity.

When it comes to basketball in Indiana, much like love and death, there are no rules. That’s probably why fans of Andrean High School, a mostly white school, thought it would be a good idea to use Donald Trump as a taunt against their bitter rival, Bishop Noll, whose team has multiple Latino players. We get that sports make you do horrible things (trust, we’ve been there), but you can’t use competition as a guise to say horrific stuff and not expect people to call you out.

That ESPN Deportes sign, though, is kind of legit funny, so kudos to you, bigots.

10 Ways Miamians Celebrate That Make The Rest Of The Country Go "WTF?"

10 Ways Miamians Celebrate That Make The Rest Of The Country Go “WTF?”

Miamians love to celebrate everything: weddings, quinces, bat mitzvahs, hurricanes, end of tax season (sans arrests), breast enhancement surgeries, breast reduction surgeries…  Just about any occasion can turn into a party faster than you can say “bottles, bro.” Besides blasting Pitbull (keep telling yourself you’re doing it ironically), here are a few rituals we do in the 305 that you might not see anywhere else in the U.S.A.

First, we bring out the cazuelas.

No, we aren’t cooking; it’s a Miami Heat championship win! Obviously.

And then head to Versailles (for literally any reason).

How do you celebrate your little cousin’s ballet recital finally being over? Or a friend visiting from out of town? A huge political win? The answer is always that magical hall of mirrors.

Horas Locas are reserved for our formal events.

A regular wedding in Miami isn’t pachanga enough for our taste. We need a party within a party. Preferably with its own theme, like Mardi Gras or A Venetian Ball or Being Really Loud.

And it’s not a party without cigar rollers.

Oh, you’ve seen cigars in a wedding goodie bag once? That’s cute. We have a mini factory going on outside.

Just about any song can result in a conga line.

We even hold the Guinness World Record for longest conga line (por supuesto).

…Or cause a merengue dance tunnel to form.

Double points if you get gringo non-Miamians to jump in.

Having a house party? Time to put a pig in a box! Obviously:

Many cultures around the world roast pork for Noche Buena, but how about for baptisms? Straight A’s? Your grandmother’s 80th birthday? Nothing says “Feliz cumple, abuela; I hope you still have your teeth” like the crispy crunch of a pellejo you stole when your tío wasn’t looking.

But it’s never really a party until the croquetas arrive.

Yeah, I’m going to need some pork in a tube while we wait for this pork in a box. Thanks.

Although some argue the same about pastelitos.

If your office party only has cake, do you even want to work there?

But the biggest way to celebrate in the 305? Grabbing a floatie and heading to the beach.

Like at Miami’s Floatopia events! Because when you live in a paradise for foodies, weather and people of all backgrounds, you always have a reason to celebrate.
