It's hard to really determine that. Some of the Donald Trump supporters (or just people who feel that Hilary is a desperate shill on the side of liberalism) side with his stance on "political correctness", especially after BLM and more overall societal awareness of implicit and institutional racism or sexism, etc. It may have been constant. I don't believe that it's that racism is more "acceptable" now, just that the furor over what constitutes as racism is now loud, and revealing issues that actually contribute to racism that we may have previously ignored or didn't factor as racism.

The 2011-2012 Civil Rights Data Collection first reported this imbalance — finding that even though black children accounted for only 18 percent of preschool students, they represented 48 percent of children receiving one or more out-of-school suspensions. Several years later, little has changed. In 2013-2014, black children accounted for 19 percent of preschool students, but 47 percent of students receiving one or more suspensions — making them 3.6 times more likely to receive a suspension than their white peers.

If by "current political climate" you mean unprecedented hate, disrespect, and obstruction of our President coinciding with our first ever Black President, sure.

You do remember GW Bush, right? You seem to be forgetting all the unprecedented hate, disrespect and obstruction that went along with his presidency...

You seem to be forgetting reality. It didn't remotely compare to what President Obama has had to deal with.

I've definitely heard more hate speech since the vote to leave the EU.

Yes, I remember that. Your point is?

My point was that the 'hate, disrespect and obstruction' isn't at all unprecedented.

I think it's made the *racists* think it's acceptable. I don't think anyone else (even the majority who voted for Trump) thinks it's suddenly okay now.

No.

Look no further than the demographics on the answers. 91% of women said yes. That right there should tell you it's no.
