The people have spoken and Donald Trump is the President-elect of the United States of America in a result that no one really saw coming this time last year bar the most ardent Trump-ophile.

The election of Trump has seen those of certain religions and ethnicities now live in fear because of the President to be's rhetoric used in his successful attempt to get elected.

Writing in an essay earlier today, Seattle Seahawks star Richard Sherman hit out at Trump and his views towards race and immigration, calling the businessman-turned-politician "appalling."

"The way that our president-elect spoke about Muslim and Hispanic people, especially in terms of immigration, was appalling," Sherman said in his piece on The Players' Tribune.

"And at some point, I’ll have to explain to my son and daughter that that’s not how you talk about people — that everybody is equal and everybody has a place in our society, regardless of their religion, race, ethnicity or sexuality."

"No matter what, you treat people with respect."

Sherman went on to write of the fear and uncertainty he’s witnessed from even young children over a country under Trump’s leadership, and he urged parents to take on the responsibility of setting the right example for their kids.

In such a scary and uncertain time, it's nice to see someone preaching love and understanding.
