"Whites 4 Trump" threaten to lynch black woman in Florida

Law enforcement officials in Florida are looking into an incident of racist workplace threats made by a Trump supporter who claims to be part of “Whites 4 Trump.”

Terri Silar, a black woman, claims it started earlier in the week when she and several of her co-workers were talking about gun control and President Trump following the Parkland shooting massacre that took place a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The conversation got so heated that she ended up walking out of the room.

When she got to work the next day, she found a stuffed monkey with a noose tied around its neck hanging on her office chair. The stuffed animal had a racist note attached to it.

“You are getting deported back to Africa n****r and that will make America great again,” it read. It was signed “Whites 4 Trump.”

There was also a note on her computer monitor that said, “n**ger b*tch.”

— Jemele Hill had time today, watch her shut down Meghan McCain on ‘The View’ about Trump tweets — 

“I had 18 emotions going through my mind. I was shocked, but most of all I was hurt,” Silar stated.

According to her, she asked her co-workers if they knew who left her these Whites 4 Trump messages and the stuffed monkey, “Is this a joke? If so, it isn’t funny.”

“I felt threatened. I didn’t feel safe. For someone to be that bold. That is a blatant boldness and a hate crime,” Silar added. “It is a monkey with a noose around its neck. What message do you think I’m going to take from that?”

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is now investigating and Silar says her company is supporting her completely.

“They were just as appalled as I was,” she said.

Silar shared a picture of the monkey and the Whites 4 Trump threats on Facebook and the post has since gone viral, being shared over 30,000 times.

“People have been very sympathetic, outraged and mortified like I was,” she said. “People were telling me their stories of racism that they’ve had to deal with. I’ve had messages from people from the UK, the Netherlands, Australia, you name it. They’re all saying, ‘I’ve experienced this.’ To hear that made me feel I’m not alone.”
