“The Incredible Reason You Might Start Seeing Everywhere” is a really positive article in such a difficult time. I think it is a great idea for ANYONE to be able to wear these pins, no matter if your woman, black, Muslim, or even a WHITE man. After reading about these pins, it seems like they symbolize that you support other minorities and that you are not alone in this more than anything, even if the president is against you. This is such a powerful idea. But in the article “Dear White People, Your Safety Pins Are Embarrassing” it basically said that white people shouldn’t be allowed to take a stand with minorities because it is all the white people fault that the nation is like this. EVERY white persons fault at that. Which is really a dumb idea, because the whole idea of only certain races wearing a pin relates to the Jews and Hitler. Also, not every white person wanted trump to be the president. This article actually made me more upset to stereotype every white person to be a Trump supporter.

I read the Huffington Post article. I think the author has a point. Looking at voters overall, it was white people who elected Donald Trump. Now everyone can wear a safety pin, but if you look at the way many people generalize minorities into stereotypes, its fair that we get put into one group. Also, many white people voted for Donald Trump, thats a fact. So instead of marking ourselves with a pin, we should actually make a difference next time and not elect Trump or someone like him.

I agree about every white person being stereotyped as a trump supporter being something to disagree with, I foiund it stereotypical too.

I agree with you that its dumb to tell white people not to wear the safety pin. I think people should support minorities and bring this issues to attention.

In my opinion, everyone should come together and stick with the “safety pin method” everyone. Not just one race. Everyone should be able to come together for what’s right instead of trying to single people out if there’s more people, there’s more power.
