After the 2016 presidential election results, a NYC high school teacher posted a kind note to students to remind them they are loved no matter what their race or background, something President-elect Donald Trump has failed to do by making offensive remarks to different groups of people.
Twitter user Micah Sifry posted a photo of the note with the caption, “A dear old friend who is an NYC high school teacher posted this on his door at school today.”
The note reads:
I love my Muslim students. I love my black students. I love my Hispanic students. I love my gay students. I love my disabled students. I love my poor students. I love all of my students and I will fight for you, no matter what.
And if he, or anyone else builds that wall, or any wall between us,
I will teach my students how to tear it down.

@YourAnonNews white students? What a horrible teacher… where's the lecture about illegal immigration and what a bad idea it is?

Trump didn't attack White people so White kids don't need to be reassured and made to feel safe.

Well, this teacher should certainly be recognized.
