97 Ways Of Saying The Same Hateful Thing: 'Get Out Of America'

“Go back to your country” and “Get out of my country.” That’s what white men in Kansas and Washington state told Indian and Sikh men in recent weeks before shooting them ― it’s as if they were speaking from the same script.

Here are 97 times in the past two years that people hurled this kind of get-out-of-America hate, often with explicit language, at minorities ― whether it was yelled from car windows, spray-painted on buildings or written in threatening emails ― to make them feel lesser and like they don’t belong here. 

These quotes were collected, in part, using data from ProPublica’s Documenting Hate Project. If you’ve been a victim or a witness of hate, tell us your story.
