Have a trip tentatively booked with family (my parents) and friends (a couple and their child) in March, coming from Canada.
Note that the couple is Muslim, and my friend wears hijab (head scarf, not a veil).
In light of the recent election results, and in light of many multiple reports of visible minorities being harassed today in the wake of the results, we’re seriously questioning the wisdom of a trip to the US anytime in the near future.
This post IS NOT INTENDED TO START ANY SORT OF POLITICAL ARGUMENT - GO ELSEWHERE IF YOU WANT TO FIGHT.
But we are honestly concerned and were wondering:
- Should we take the DME and not leave the bubble to minimize potential racist comments and/or confrontations?
- Would we be okay to rent a minivan and drive around to get to WDW and spend a couple of days at Legoland?
- Should we avoid leaving the bubble to go shopping at the outlets, etc?
Thanks for any advice. We’re just so confused up here in the wake of the election and aren’t really sure what to make of the state of affairs on the ground in the US.
