Black Cis Peeps, Stop Using The Cops As a Weapon Against Trans People
But y'all have been criticket chirping silent about the times you skinfolks have called the cops on Black trans people for simply living our lives or going to the damned bathroom.
Think I'm selling woof tickets about that? Here's the receipts.
The same thing happened in Charlotte a few years later to Andraya Williams, when another Black female security guard called the campus cops who detained and escorted her off the Central Piedmont Community College Campus..
This crap needs to stop. Trans people need to go to the bathroom for the same reason many of you do, to poop and pee. Now if you're a Republican, you have repeatedly caught trying to make love connections in them.
But back to the post.
Skinfolk, if you don't like the cops being called on you for simply living your lives, you need to extend the same courtesy to your Black trans skinfolk. Unjustly calling the cops on us is just as dangerous or even more to a Black trans body as it is you Black cis one, especially in an era in which trans folks are being attacked by the conservative movement.
It's past time for you to stop calling to cops on trans people for any reason other than the commission of a crime or just because you're mad that the trans woman is performing femininity better than you are and want to be shady about it. .
