We have survived racism, sexism, Jim Crow and slavery. We're gonna have to survive through this like we always have. Together. 👊🏾— Nicole C. Brooks (@Nicole_camara) November 9, 2016
We survived colonization.— Brotha B (@BlakeDontCrack) November 9, 2016
We survived the middle passage.
We survived chattel slavery.
We will survive a Donald Trump presidency.
The positive element from all this is that we can no longer pretend that we are free of racism & sexism. The question is, what do we do now?— Jessica Chastain (@jes_chastain) November 9, 2016
People vowed to stand together and unite with love

The tributes to Hillary Clinton rolled in
You see Hillary's supporters proudly post online about their vote. Trump's supporters are so quiet.. Implies even they know it's shameful— Kelsey Merritt (@kelsmerritt) November 9, 2016
