Interracial Couples & Black Women – Fight Back in Trumps America


trump-protestLike a lot of people I was completely stunned by Tuesday’s results. I admit, I wanted to stick my head in the sand and pretend that Trump did not exist for the next four years by avoiding the media and disengaging from it all.

However, I was forced to face reality when I get a few phone calls and messages from people telling me to be extra careful since the crazy racist trump supporters have been emboldened by Trump’s election and are targeting minorities, interracial couples and homosexuals.

This led me to read up on an article titled day 1 in Trump’s America (https://twitter.com/i/moments/796417517157830656) where people were sending in reports of harassment, violence, property damage, verbal abuse, etc. perpetuated by Trump supporters.

Apparently, a lot of disgusting trump supporters, young and old feel, that they have been validated by a government that represents their racist and xenophobic ideals and that they no longer have to be “PC”. Instead, they can unapologetically say exactly whatever is on their minds and evil hearts as Trump has all throughout his campaign.

And what is on their mind is that anyone who isn’t a heterosexual White male or female doesn’t belong here in America, America will only be great again when minorities are stomped back into a place of submission, and women have gotten a little bit too big for their britches by expecting to have control over their bodies.

So what does this mean for you if you are a Black woman, or in an interracial relationship with a Black woman or White man?

You need to be prepared.

We need to be smart and protect ourselves regardless of where we live. It doesn’t matter if you are in a blue state (like Connecticut or New York) or in the deep South. Pockets of racists have been hiding everywhere and these idiots are coming out from under their rocks to prey on people.

For me, protecting myself means not being caught off guard – being aware of my surroundings, listening to my gut – and arming myself. Right away I looked into getting a gun, but where I live it is not legal to carry a concealed weapon (that doesn’t mean your state won’t allow it though).

Additionally, my friends and I talked about learning self defense skills – many police departments offer these classes –  and purchasing weapons that can be worn, or are easy to carry around on a keychain or in a pocket.

Here is a list of things I am considering that you may want to consider getting for yourself, your significant other, and your friends/family (be sure to check whether any of these items are illegal in your city or state):

FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE: Ideally, you want to carry a weapon that you can use without your attacker getting too close, so that you can flee or you can stop the assailant (see the gun above). These products will do the trick.

Fredi HD Portable Hidden Spy Camera – Get those suckers on camera with the world’s smallest wifi hidden camera. It is motion detected, takes audio and video recording, and is a network camera, which means no distance limitations to view or record live videos.

Whip self defense chain – Unravels to 11.5 feet so you don’t have to be as close to use it. Swing and a keep on swinging to cause some real damage to whoever chose just the right person to mess with. Attach to your keychain or bag.

Pepper spray – Law enforcement grade pepper spray with Invisible Law Enforcement UV Marking Dye for Assailant Identification that is accurate up to 10 feet and comes out in a stream so that you don’t want to worry about blowback. Put it on a keychain or keep it in the pocket of your jacket.

 

SECOND LINE OF DEFENSE: You don’t want your attacker getting so close that you have to fight them, but just in case it does come to that, these products are designed to give you a better chance at getting away.

Kubaton – a ministick used for self defense. It can be transported and concealed easily, as well as purchased easily in your state. Whatever you do, don’t hold it and use the keys to flail. The stick is the weapon! View how to use it with online tutorials like the one below.

Kopo stick – A steel bar that you can grip and use to jab pressure points or use open handed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtU9VwFK854

The Tiger Lady – a Small lightweight handheld device that fits into the natural groove of your hand. When squeezed the claws, which are designed to capture the DNA of an attacker, come out as a line of defense. Again I would keep one in jacket pocket or wear it if I am walking alone in a deserted or unfamiliar place.

Sting Ring – An 18 Million Volt Stun Gun activated by squeezing it

Go Guarded Ring – It’s a ring that can be worn on any finger and features a heavy-duty serrated-edge weapon that gets revealed when you make a fist.

Security Alarm – One push of the button sounds off an emergency alarm to alert others you are in trouble. You don’t want to have to depend on someone else to save you, but it might act as a deterrent. Put it on your key, the outer pocket of a purse of backpack, or hang it from your purse’s strap.

Any pointy eared animal Keychain – lightweight, sturdy. Better to use than relying solely on your keys (see below)

 

If you don’t get the keychain you could use your keys for self defense. FYI threading the keys through your fingers like wolverine will probably result in you ripping your hand apart. It is better to grip it between your thumb and pointer finger, hold it with your thumb to the inner eye and rip outward, or target the cheek or throat.

 

Jamming the heel of your boot or shoe into an attacker’s foot – midway between the ankle and the toe, and going for the jugular – literally –  or the inner thigh instead of the groin since attackers are more likely to protect this area) are also good tips to note.

Additionally, you might want to start watching videos on youtube to learn how to get out of a chokehold or other things to do if you find yourself being attacked

It’s better to have the knowledge and not need it than to need it and not know what the heck to do.

EXTREME MEASURES? I DON’T THINK SO!

Look, this might seem extreme to some of you, but extreme times call for extreme measures. The only way these “people”, if we can even consider them that, will get the message that they are not free to run rampant is when they realize we are ready for them.

It is really sad that we still have to deal with this in 2016, but we need to let them know that this is every bit just as much our America and we are not going anywhere. Forget about keeping your head down and taking it or – that will just serve to further empower them since bullies thrive on fear.

Let’s pass the word on about how we need to prepare to protect and defend ourselves instead of just passing on the stories of harassment and abuse!

    Since you obviously think Trump is pure evil, you really never bothered to look at the facts surrounding Hillary Clinton or George Soros, the Muslim Brother hood or the Arab Emerites. so then you wouldn’t, know George Soros has been paying professionals to protest all of trumps rallies and he’s also bank rolling the current violent political protests today. George Soros, the Muslim brother hood have also been bank rolling ISIS to kill innocent Villagers, Our Troops, European nations and they have been back rolling Arabs to come to Mexico, and Migrate to the U.S. through Mexico ILLEGALLY. I guess you didn’t know that Hillary & William Clinton Stole 6.5 Billion dollars from the Haitian people and their government. I guess you did do any research into the fact, Hillary Clinton was going to Introduce Sharia Law into the U.S. and making it so that Honor killings would become Legal. I guess you didn’t know, Hillary Clinton follows both the Communist Manifesto and the Fascist Manifesto Under the Thought that Black People are a Sub-Species to be treated like Animals, which is why Hillary Clinton Labeled Black Men as Super-predators.

      I guess you couldn’t read that this post is about TRUMP supporters feeling emboldened to harass and terrorize BLACK WOMEN and other minorities due to their racist leader who spouted hate speech all throughout his campaign. Whatever your conspiracy theories are of Hillary (most of which have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the topic at hand since she wasn’t promoting hate speech or inciting her followers to be violent or attack anyone), had she won her supporters would not be doing any of the nonsense I’m sure you DIDN’t read about in the link referenced in the article. Also, she was the only one out of the two who expressed actually caring about the plight of minorities – so please go take your deluded self elsewhere and stop trying to derail our conversation.

        I did read it, Trump supporters are mostly working class people like me. we have so little time to protest. the protesters you see and hear about are paid protestors Working for George Soros. He’s paying protestors to destroy in the Mane of Clinton and in the name of Trump. You are 1 of the SUCKERS who have bought into what the Media are telling you about Trump supporters. We simply have very little time to protest anything.

        You seem to have a lot of time to be posting on the internet. AGAIN, please brush up on your reading comprehension skills. The article above has absolutely nothing to do with protestors and everything to do with protecting oneself from the dangerous racist asshats that are attacking and harassing people because of Trump’s rhetoric. If you cannot stick to the topic at hand and bring anything meaningful to the conversation please do us all a favor and GTFO!

    I think the chances of idiots attacking blacks or Muslims etc is way overblown. We’ve all seen Trump make a fool of himself repeatedly, but I really don’t think that has changed the US. There are always going to be some radical fools in this world. Trump doesn’t have the power to make these kinds of changes in my opinion. Trump will be forced to be a more normal person going forward. Or his presidency will absolutely crash & burn. As he is, I would never vote for him myself.

      Let’s hope that is the case (it’s overblown and his presidency will crash and burn)

    Of course these commenters won’t notice a difference or don’t think it’s a problem because they aren’t black women. Things have definitely changed ALREADY. Now I have to deal with street harassment from black men AND microagressions plus other not so subtle actions from other races.
