In the month following Donald Trump’s election as president, America has witnessed an alarming rise in hateful behavior, both online and in everyday life. The growing presence of sexist, racist, xenophobic and discriminatory energy has spurred countless brave individuals to take a stand and display unconditional unity, proving that hate is not the default attitude of all Americans. On December 3, Fusfoo students Charlie Ehrman, Julia Newman and David Baez attended the NYC Love & Equality Rally in Washington Square Park, a gathering held in response to a KKK Donald Trump victory rally happening in North Carolina. The warmth and acceptance captured in their video of Washington Square Park is a powerful counterpoint to the hate expressed by groups like the KKK, and serves as a reminder that hate is a weakness that cannot survive when confronted with love.
