A quiet protest made a bold statement outside the White House on election night with some simple words: “We are better than bigotry.”

The glowing sign seemed to symbolize the feeling of a lot of Americans on a tense election night. The presidential race has seen a contentious set of views put forth by Donald Trump, from his sexually explicit references about women to his calls for banning all Muslims from entering the United States.

The feelings about discrimination, the anxiety about what this election could bring, and the need to affirm that America is more about love than hate – it all came together outside the home of the next U.S. president.

Protestors gathered in the darkness and held up the sign for onlookers.

The demonstrators’ feelings were heard loud and clear at the nation’s capitol. Some sang “America the Beautiful” at one point, while the White House was blocked off throughout the event.

As the vote results trickled in throughout election night, Trump was shown to be a political force to be reckoned with.

On Twitter, a lot of Americans were worried and disappointed, expressing the same sentiment as the White House protestors.
