Sturgis proves it's the worst town in South Dakota...again

Welcome to the age of toxic masculinity in Donald Trump's America.
A 17-year-old boy will face adult charges after the body of a teenage girl from Wyoming, who was believed to be missing, was found in the basement of his Sturgis home. No cause of death has been officially released. An autopsy is scheduled for later this week. [Rapid City Journal]
“Go back to the rez!”

A South Dakota school board voted unanimously to cancel homecoming activities that would have featured a football game between the Sturgis Scoopers and the Pine Ridge Thorpes after a car bearing hate speech and a symbol painted on it that some said resembled a swastika was smashed by Sturgis students.

Sturgis is home to Fort Meade: one of the last outposts supporting the US Army's war against Native forces.

While incidents like this one in Meade County are not uncommon in South Dakota white nationalist incitements have intensified because of Trump's history of sexual violence, hateful lies and propaganda.
