Default My MAGA hat causes racism against me

I have a MAGA hat that stays in the back window of my daily driver. It is very visible to anyone behind me or anyone seeing my car parked. At work where I am a supervisor there are African Americans who will not speak to me unless they are forced to do so in their job duties. They truly believe that because I have a MAGA hat in the window of my car I am racist. This just blows my mind. I smile and try to communicate with them in everyday conversation yet they will not speak to me unless their job duty requires them to do so. This upsets me but I ain't about to stop parading my MAGA hat.

hell, if they had on a hat that said Trump sucks it would not matter to me. I would still treat them the same way I do anyone.

I want to buy a red MAGA hat so bad. I’m just not into the formed front button top baseball cap. Somebody needs to make them in different styles...business idea but not sure if you have to license that.

maybe you should make one up and wear it and see if they speak; and, if they do then start the conversation as to why they suddenly changed. Can't hurt to get a dialogue started . . .

The Trump campaign also sold modern style MAGA ball-caps. I have a few of them. The formed front button top ones that Trump actually wears do look absurd. Probably why he wears them, just like his hair-do.

Default Maga hat

I like to wear a mega hat but with all the crazy liberals out there I'm afraid to have it near my car since I want to keep my car unscathed

I'm not suggesting you aren't being truthful in the bolded...... but lets be honest, 97% of the PRC Trumpers would treat them (the "Trump sucks" hat guys) the same way you're being treated at work. Politics suck. Most politicians (Trump included) run on the same tired platform similar to "we need unity!" and in the end we become even more divided by politics.

My suggestion... don't bring it to work. I was a supervisor for a decade and rarely discussed or demonstrated political or religious beliefs. Work isn't the place for that stuff (and I realize you're talking about the back window of your car).

Ask your co-workers if they know what the black unemployment rate was under Obama, and what it is under Trump.

I'm betting you'll be rewarded with a blank stare.

You're the boss right? You're not there to be friendly or make friends. if it's co-workers with a problem then tell them to go **** themselves. Tell them to use a big rubber dick. Make it a purple one. They can go **** themselves.

Problem solved.

Yeah, I know. I'm still willing to bet on the blank stare, however.

I did not care for Obama one bit and NEVER have treated some poorly because they like and supported him. With all due respect, ***** em...

while I agree that politics should be kept out of work I do not think that very many trump supporters would treat the "Trump sucks" hat guy like I have been treated. I see to much of this happening and it's a one way street mostly.

Fair enough. My limited opinion is based on what I see in PRC daily... a lot of hatred for democrats and specifically anyone negative towards Trump. So if the "Trump sucks" hat people were democrats, and this is a safe assumption, the PRC people would be no better.
