The Nihilists are setting race relations back a hundred years.

One person 'shot multiple times' at Trump protest - 'African American' suspect on the run 

ANTI-TRUMP protesters have taken to the streets in Oregon where police have fired teargas and hurled 'flash-bang grenades' to disperse the crowds.

The unrest has erupted in Portland where police say protesters threw burning missiles at them, leaving them no option but to use force in retaliation.
Protesters had promised a peaceful rally but as the hundreds of angry activists descended on the streets chaos ensued - with assaults and vandalism across the city.

One person was shot during the protest multiple times and police said an 'African American' suspect was on the run.

Portland Police said: "In the early morning hours of Saturday November 12, 2016, a man was injured in a shooting on the Morrison Bridge during a protest march. 
"Preliminary information indicates that a suspect was in a vehicle on the bridge and there was a confrontation with someone in the protest. The suspect got out of the vehicle and fired multiple shots injuring the victim. 
"Officers near the scene arrived quickly and provided medical aid until an ambulance arrived to transport the victim to a Portland hospital for treatment to non-life-threatening injuries. 
"The suspect fled the area, likely in the vehicle described as a gray or silver sedan. 
"The suspect is described as an African American male, late teens, 5'8" tall, thin build, wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans."

Protests have erupted in Portland against Trump as President
Portland is the largest in the West Coast state and unrest spilled over onto university campuses and downtown areas.

One protester, Leslie Holmes, 65, travelled for an hour to join the anti-Donald Trump rally - the first protest she has taken part in since the Vietnam War.
She described herself as an "armchair liberal" but said: "I'm not going to be armchair anymore."
She added: "I don't want to live in a country where my friends aren't included, and my friends are fearful, and my children are going to grow up in a world that's frightening, and my granddaughters can look forward to being excluded from jobs and politics and fulfilling their potential, so I'm here for them."

Protests across the country have ground traffic to a halt and stretched police forces - from Miami to Atlanta.
More than a thousand protesters took to the streets across California including in downtown Los Angeles, where over 200 were arrested the night before.
In Washington hundreds descended on Capitol Hill chanting "not my president" and "no Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA" while university students burned American flags on campuses.

Nadia Gavino, 25, who is part Mexican and joined those taking to the streets, said she took Trump's harshest statements about immigrants and Latinos personally.
Ms Gavino said: "I obviously agree that he's racist, he's sexist, he's phobic, he's misogynistic. He's all these things you don't want in a leader."
Ashley Lynne Nagel, 27, joined a Thursday night demonstration in Denver.

She said: "I have a leader I fear for the first time in my life. It's not that we're sore losers. It's that we are genuinely upset, angry, terrified that a platform based off of racism, xenophobia and homophobia has become so powerful and now has complete control of our representation."
The continuing protests came as activists took to the streets in other countries - including in London where a group of protesters gathered outside the US embassy brandishing placards depicting Mr Trump as Adolf Hitler.
