Civil rights groups say President-elect Donald Trump should forcefully and publicly denounce racism and bigotry. They are pointing to more than 860 bias-related incidents recorded in the 10 days following his victory. The Southern Poverty Law Center says it compiled the list of incidents on its website and through the media in that time period. Anti-immigrant and anti-black hate incidents made up the largest number of claims. The group said it has not independently verified each claim but said it has weeded out any reported hoaxes.
