Drexel professor Adrienne Juarascio, a self-identified Hillary Clinton supporter, discovered Nov. 11 that her car, parked at 18th and Reed streets had been vandalized.
The words “It’s our p—- now, B—h,” were keyed across the passenger side door of her Toyota Camry.
This message is believed to be related to a 2005 video released Oct. 7, in which President-elect Donald Trump used similar language.
“I’m not sure [why I was targeted],” Juarascio, an assistant research professor with Drexel’s psychology department and also a licensed clinical psychologist, told PhillyVoice on Nov. 12.
“I am a big Hillary supporter and had signs at my house. Maybe somebody saw me get out of my car going home,” she continued.
There have been several incidents of vandalism since Nov. 8 when Trump won the presidential election, defeating Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Two graffiti swastikas appeared on a storefront at 1300 S. Broad St. the morning of Nov. 9, one of which was used in place of the “T” in the spray-painted “TRUMP.”
Also on Nov. 9, “Trump Rules,” “Trump Rules Black Bitch” and “T” were spray-painted onto one house and three cars on the 900 block of South Sixth Street.
Similar graffiti has been produced through digital means.
On Nov. 11, several African American students at the University of Pennsylvania were invited to join a GroupMe titled “N—– Lynchings.” A student from the University of Oklahoma has since been suspended in connection to this event.
During a “60 Minutes” segment aired Nov. 13, Trump told his supporters to halt their harassment of marginalized groups.
“I am so saddened to hear that,” he said when informed of the harassment encountered by Latinos and Muslims. “And I say, ‘Stop it.’ If it — if it helps, I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: ‘Stop it.’”
“[T]he silver lining I’ve seen over the past few days,” Juarascio told Philly Voice. “[Is that] more people want to get involved in politics and their communities. More people want to help keep Philly a safe place.”
