Another Racial Crime Erupts In Trump’s America. Black Man Hospitalized After Machete Attack

A white man was just arrested in Clearlake, California for allegedly stabbing a black man with a machete in what police believe to be a crime motivated by racism, according to the Lake County News.

According to the report, Anthony Robert Hammond was “yelling racial slurs at numerous people” in the parking lot of his apartment complex. He then went into his apartment and came back with a machete.

“As he continued yelling racial slurs at the victim,” the Lake County News reported, “Hammond struck the victim on the shoulder with the machete, causing serious bodily injury.”

The victim’s identity has yet to be revealed, but was immediately rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

Hammond was arrested after hours of a standoff with police, as they believed he had a firearm as well as the machete used to stab the victim.

This is just another example of a Trump-provoked attack. Throughout his campaign, Trump encouraged racism, sexism, xenophobia and other multitudes of hatred. It’s no wonder that his supporters believe it’s okay to use hate as an excuse for attacking someone.

The Clearlake attack comes just three days after two men were killed in Portland, Oregon for standing up to a racist man yelling slurs at two young Muslim women.
