The Journal’s experience: Dylan Torres


When I came back to school to cover the protests, I expected to see a mass of people chanting and holding signs in opposition of President Trump and his supporters. And, I did. I saw the homemade signs shoved into the air by arms of all colors, attached to bodies that shouted things about equality for LGBTQ people and immigration policies. However, I didn’t anticipate a verbal retaliation from the flood of Trump supporters to be as heinous as it was, such as “Make America thin again” or “Let her be raped.”
