According to the vote, that would be half the population (with many of them being minorities themselves). That's a pretty large brush stroke you painted there.

Large brush strokes or not, but it's almost certain that similar to the aftermath of Brexit, lots of people will feel like their sexistic, racist and overall shitty views have been normalized and justified, so they'll feel much more free to express them openly.

People like that already do all of those things? Whether or not a candidate they are supporting wins would not have changed that.

Minorities can't be sexist, racist, or climate change deniers? Today I learned.

After Brexit happened statistics recorded substantial increases in crimes and hate-speach against non-natives as well as foreigners that have been citizens for many years. Whether that had existed before that has no relevance. And that's Brittain, the place where you don't see black people shot every week or so.

Electing someone who approves extreme and hateful actions with his rhetoric won't actually help eliminating social turmoil.
