anotherheather: Luna making a very angry face (mlp: luna angry)

I was determined not to check election results until this morning because I didn't want to stay up late making myself crazy over something I had no control over.

I cannot believe Trump won the electoral vote, and now it is looking like Hillary may have won the popular vote. I was surprised to see that Hillary got as many votes as she did in my state of Texas. Usually the margin isn't even remotely close.

I have no intentions of jumping ship. To quote a dear friend of mine, "You know something? I refuse to accept that this is the end of the world. I refuse to accept powerlessness. I refuse to accept hate as my leader, fear as my guide, or oppression as my master. So long as I have a breath to breathe, a word to say, and a hand to give, I remain an American -- vagina and all! If good will come, I accept it. If good will not, I will make it."

I like your dear friend's words. I'm just hoping his own party block some of his more disgusting and outlandish ideas. As my dear friend said, "straight white males were Trumps target audience- angry because their "right" to rule over all others has been chipped away in recent decades. Trump tapped into this anger and rode it to the White House". Food for thought there.

If I were white, I would probably stay. But as a black person I don't think it would be wise of me to remain in this country's borders.

I refused to watch the results the night of, so I went to bed, got woken up by a nightmare 5 in the morning, that there was chaos and looting on the streets. I go to check my phone....Donald J. Trump elected president.


And now they're saying Hillary won the popular vote by more than 2 million votes, and Jill Stein is trying to get recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, talking about a possible hacking or cyberattack.

We shall see.
