The Des Moines Register’s marvelous Reka Basu looks at the effects of three years of Trumpery. A snippet:
The day after Trump was elected in 2016, as a high school teacher in Keota wrote to the Register in a letter, he heard a student bellow “Trump! Trump!” in a Hispanic student’s face, saying she should go back to where she came from and was probably illegal.
At high school sports events, fans have used the chants to intimidate opposing teams’ nonwhite players. In 2017 after a high school girls’ basketball varsity game between Mediapolis and Columbus Junction (which has a large Latino population), a message saying “Go back to the border” and “Go Trump” was scribbled on a whiteboard in a locker room.
