Rachel has been working for IHOP for almost 5 years now, but this was the first time she was attacked.

Racism has always been one of the biggest diseases in our society. And with Donald Trump winning the presidency, racism became more prevalent in the US.

Today’s society seems to be obsessed with judging people just by the way they look, speak and/or dress. People begin to stereotype others which lead to conflict. While many people remain patriotic to their own race and country, some of them do not like other races.

Sadly, America has been witnessing a spate of racist attacks and hate crimes after Donald Trump won the election. These perpetrators of hate crimes apparently have found the liberty knowing that the new administration harbours similar ideologies and has promised to enforce laws legalising discrimination on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.

The latest victim of racial attacks in the US is a Filipina waitress in Virginia named Rachel Mau. She had to take a double shift one Friday night because a large group of high school students came in to party. The next day, most kids had left and only 5 remained. Rachel waited for them.

But instead of tipping her, the students wrote, “Build that wall, Trump daddy” on the receipt’s tip column and “nah” on another receipt.

Rachel told Rappler: “I was pretty shocked and I didn’t know what to do. My feelings were hurt and I didnt know how to take it in at first. I’ve just kept thinking about it and it upsets me because they didn’t seem like they have a problem or anything.

“They were respectful the night before.”

Rachel has been working for IHOP for almost 5 years now, but this was the first time she was attacked.

She added: “Usually we have a lot of older people that come in, and there’s also high school kids and they’re usually respectful—so that was my first time dealing with that and I didn’t really know how to react towards it.

“Trump being president-elect has really made a difference on how people treat others.”
