I know I can't be the only one freaking out, changing my daily activities, due to the changing political climate. For example, I've stopped walking the local hiking trail because I realized it's too wooded and secluded. I thought I was being paranoid until:
1. A friend of a friend was harassed on said trail because they perceived her to be Muslim.
2. Two towns down, a man got two warning letters ordering him to ditch his African-American roommates.
3. In the town bordering mine, someone has been distributing KKK newsletters, and they seem to be selecting which issue to give based on the target's circumstances. For example, a lesbian couple received one on their driveway, lamenting the 2015 Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriage legal in all states.
The police chief had one mailed to his workplace.
I don't feel too comfortable posting the news articles, as they'd give away my location. I'll just say that this is an extremely Blue state. People bandy my senator's name about as a 2020 liberal presidential hopeful.
If a black woman is not safe here, then where?
