An African-American student at the University of Central Missouri, Justice Rappel, posted on Facebook that she was spit on by a white male on Wednesday.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Rappel said she filed an incident report for the hate crime with the campus and a police report with the Warrensburg Police Department.

UCM President Chuck Ambrose told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that they are “responding immediately and aggressively to make sure students know that they’re cared for.”

In Kansas City on Wednesday night, hundreds of anti-Trump protestors took to the streets.

"It just says an awful, awful message and the way people feel in this country especially toward people who are marginalized towards the LGBT communities, people of color and immigrants," said Rudy Costello, the protest's organizer.

Trump protests were also seen across the United States, the biggest ones in New York and Chicago. Initial reports estimate that at least 5,000 people swarmed the streets in midtown Manhattan.
