In the days leading up to the election of Trump, a racist vitriolic mob in the Mt. Greenwood neighborhood of Chicago threatened a Black family whose loved one, Joshua Beal, had just been killed by off-duty police during a funeral procession. This grieving family had “Ni**gers Go Home” and “Keep Out of Our Town” screamed at them as they waited at a Burger King for their cars to be released by the police. Then the manager closed the BK early, forcing them outside. In the days after, protestors who went to the scene were met by white mobs of hundreds who DNAinfo described as “demonstrators supporting police.”
