Thomas, who is the Georgia State Representative of District 39, says she was verbally assaulted in a grocery store by a white man. Many are pledging their support for Thomas using the hashtag “I Stand With Erica.”

This story breaks my heart. I am so sorry this happened to Erica Thomas. People are so disgusting. This needs to end. Stop using hateful rhetoric and attacking people!

These are the consequences of a president who foments hate every day—and sees our diversity not as a strength but as a weakness. Erica, thank you for serving your state and thanks to your husband for serving our country. We are better than this, and together, we will prove it.
