F–k you and your family, you terrorist f–k! Trump is president now!

A disturbing video posted to Facebook by New York-based actor Karim Metwaly reveals a startling look into what minority Americans and people of color have to look forward to in an America lead by president-elect Donald Trump. The video, shot from Metwaly’s cell phone, portrays a man verbally assaulting Metwaly while in passing in an intersection. We tried to reach Metwaly for comment, but he did not respond by publication time.

WARNING: Video is Not Safe For Work.

The video, which Ketwaly posted to his Facebook “fan page” account on November 17, 2016, has since gained nearly 4,000,000 views and gone viral across the internet. It comes at the same time as what appears to be a rash of hate crimes taking place across the country since Donald Trump was announced the presumed president-elect on November 9th.

The New York Daily News reports that more than 700 ‘hateful harassment’ attacks reported since Donald Trump’s election.

Following a presidential campaign marked by xenophobic comments, Donald Trump’s first major cabinet selections include pointedly anti-Islam picks.  They include Senator Jeff Sessions from Alabama for attorney general, Representative Mike Pompeo from Kansas as director of the CIA, and former Lieutenant General Michael Flynn as national security adviser. Flynn is on record as having called Islam “a cancer,” while Pompeo insulted his muslim American opponent for his congressional seat in 2010 by publicly calling him a “turban topper.”

Jeff Sessions supports Donald Trump’s ban on Muslims from entering the United States, and has a long history of distaste for the Civil Rights Act, and has publicly lambasted group’s like the NAACP.

These selections come days after Trump made headlines when selecting Steve Bannon as his chief strategist. Bannon is viewed as an extreme white nationalist that many hoped, amidst news that the president-elect had called a meeting with former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney,  would be an irregular choice for Trump and that his subsequent selections might err on the more moderate side.

Bannon told The Hollywood Reporter this week that “darkness is good,” and went on to praise Dick Cheney, Darth Vader, and SATAN.

No such luck.
