The outrage culture is a bore. Everything seems to trigger everyone and the lack of backbone is apparent in the American left. As much as we would like to just ignore the grumblings of crybaby snowflakes, sometimes the depth of their ridiculousness just has to be brought to our attention.

Enter Dr. Bueno. On a trip to Maine, not known for white supremacy, Dr. Bueno reported a disturbing sight that made her fear for her families life. Was it a parade of folks in white robes and hoods? No. Was it a row of burning crosses and an armed militia wearing swastikas? Negative.

The sight that left this intrepid traveler worried of impending doom was….a Trump yard sign.

In short, she wants a refund or voucher from Airbnb because her rental in Maine was in view of Trump yard signs and other ‘white nationalist symbols’, which she later explains is the American flag. These sights made her immediately terrified for her life, and she wants Airbnb to understand the trauma she has endured as a black person.

Disappointed @airBnb doesn’t understand the trauma of TRUMP signs on a @airbnb rental causes Black person

My husband rented a place in Maine and when we arrived in the evening we saw Trump yard signs and other white nationalist symbols. I immediately was terrified and scared for my life and family safety

We left and @Airbnb says they cant do anything. Prime example how white companies make a BLM statement but when Black person tells them they didnt feel safe they do nothing

If they want to be racist they need to post a complete picture so BIPOC know not to stay there. We need a greenbook for @Airbnb where we know we are safe

I shouldnt have to pay to stay at a place i dont feel safe and @AirbnbHelp at minimum should give me a full refund/voucher for all the trauma this experience has caused

@Airbnb has a discrimination statement but its only words no action. What about believing a black person and making them retell a traumatizing experience. Do better

What “symbols of hate,” you might ask?

This experience shows that people are unaware of signs and symbols used. Top symbols that invoke fear for Black people …list below https://t.co/wXubFseobg

— Cary Bueno, Ph.D (@CarycruzBueno) September 24, 2020

1 KKK symbols and flags
2 confederate flags and symbols

— Cary Bueno, Ph.D (@CarycruzBueno) September 24, 2020

3 police lights /blue lives matter flag
4 trump signs and white terrorism slogans

— Cary Bueno, Ph.D (@CarycruzBueno) September 24, 2020

5 USA Flag – yes this is a symbol used in many places to scare Black people

— Cary Bueno, Ph.D (@CarycruzBueno) September 24, 2020

That’s quite a list … which of those fear-invoking symbols did she see in Maine, aside from the Trump yard signs? Did a police car go by with its lights flashing? Did someone in Maine have a Confederate flag? Were the neighbors wearing Klan robes? As she stated, pictures would really help us understand.
