Society owes Trans People 40 Acres and a Mule

If Trans People decided to break-up with the LGB, this would be their theme song. If we are not going to push for FULL equality for Trans People – Give them their own voices, their own programs, jobs, sustainable life – DON’T KEEP THEIR FUNDING and give them their 40 acres and a mule!

Trans People, you have to call out the programs and people who speak of you but do not support you. You will not get equality by playing it safe. I know it may be hard to lose the little society gives you by speaking up but something has to give. Who are the leaders amongst you? Come forth…

I will not shut up or back off until someone picks up the torch and runs with it. I am Humanity 100% and I don’t see Humanity for Trans People.

Did Paris Wilson get away with murder? A Visual account of the Islan Nettles Court Hearing on 11/19/13

Visual account of events here: Occupy the Courthouse #2 Justice for Islan Nettles Protest

374495_10202643527795098_442932404_nStatement by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office at the trial of Paris Wilson, accused killer of Islan Nettles.
This was the complete statement read by the prosecutor in court Tuesday, 11/19/13:

“As the Court is aware, the defendant was originally arrested in this case on a charge of misdemeanor assault. Several days after the arrest, the victim died from her injuries. Since that time, we have been aggressively investigating the crime as a homicide.
For the reasons referenced in court on the prior two dates, however, the case has turned out to be a uniquely complex one, and we are not yet prepared to go to the grand jury. However we continue to actively investigate this case in the hopes of ultimately holding the person responsible for this crime accountable. Today, we concede that eh speedy trial time has run with only with regards to the misdemeanor with which the defendant is charged – and thus the case must be dismissed. It should be emphasized, however, that the crime we are investigating, homicide, has no statutory speedy-trial deadline. Therefore, should our ongoing investigation ultimately result in an indictment of Mr. Wilson for homicide, the case would be promptly restored to the calendar and would move forward, notwithstanding today’s dismissal of the misdemeanor charge.”

Luz’s Daughter Cares Suggestion:

(1) Witnesses MUST come forward!! The Friends of Islan Nettles who were with her that night need to speak up. LGBT organizations need to make sure they are protected if and when they do. Paris Wilson, his friends and family are NOT going to do the right thing. Period.

(2) LGBTQ community, groups and organizations – do not get weary! It is our responsibility to keep this case relevant and alive. Do not stop questioning and do not accept  yet another unsolved Trans Person murder!

(3) Be united and not divided in the quest for Justice. The proof of such are in the numbers that come out and support or lack thereof. Trans People of the community deserve more from us all. At the end of the day, all humans are equal and all deserve equality. The umbrella that covers the LGBQ community often leaves our Trans Family out in the rain.
