Is the headline “Black Girl Assaulted at a Trump Rally” really a surprise to anyone?
The sad fact is that we’re in the year 2016 – and it’s not. Not at all.
Shiya Nwanguma was shoved around the crowd at the Louisville rally as Trump supporters screamed insults at her. She was called everything from “n---r” to “c—t”. The Daily News is even reporting that Trump himself was heard shouting “Get them out of here” as the assault took place.
One of the supporters accused of assaulting Nwanguma is Matthew Heimbach, a member of the Traditionalist Worker Party. The Traditionalist Party has Neo-Nazi, white supremacist roots.
Heimbach wrote a blog post for the party’s website in which he stated, “Statistically speaking, the myth of Blacks being targeted by law enforcement is untenable. In fact, if there’s a reckless disregard for human life and culture of violence to be found, it’s to be found in America’s Black community.”
As GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump is poised to be the party’s Presidential candidate.
Hear all about Nwanguma's account in her own words below.
