Black Lives Matter supporters expressed dismay over the possibility of a Trump presidency as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump inched closer to securing the presidency Tuesday night.

Major sympathizers of the Black Lives Matter movement took to Twitter express their sadness as Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lost in battleground states.

DeRay McKesson, a prominent activist within the movement, maintained that the closeness in the race meant that the most racist aspects of the country had come out.


Shaun King, a writer at the New York Daily News, told his followers not to lose hope, then quickly wrote a letter of encouragement to minority groups as Trump gained more states.


Wesley Lowery, a writer at The Washington Post, blamed the current election status on white people.
