returned to New York after being in Denmark for two years for her physical transition and GCS, I'm looking at the prospect of having a transphobe on stage tonight at the Harris County Democratic Party's (HDCP) Johnson Rayburn Richards (JRR) dinner being held tonight at the Marriot Marquis>
It ain't Julian Castro, who I am looking forward to hearing speak to night as the JRR keynote and hopefully getting a chance to meet. Michael Bloomberg? Not so much.
awards will be presented to Amber Goodwin, Linda Morales, Cecile Richards and the Supermajority group..
More like Black Democrats massively rejecting St Bernard of Sanders, and news flash, ain't nothing changed in Black America since 2016 concerning our low opinion of Sanders, no matter how much you believe the hype from Nina Turner.
Black Democratic voters matter, and it looks like we'll have to teach that lesson once again. Early voting for the Texas prmary starts on February 18, with the election happening on March 3.
But back to talking about Bloomberg. One of the other things that has me concerned is this rush to canonize him as some sort of savior when he is deeply problematic to me and many Black Americans
And oh yeah, haven't forgotten that Bloomberg ran as a Republican to become mayor of New York
I'm not happy about the 2016 transphobic comments that Bloomberg uttered in Great Britain, and damned sure was paying attention when stop and frisk Black and Brown people was going on when he was running New York City.
Many of the Black and Brown people being frisked by NYPD were also transgender New Yorkers.
It was also a policy that Bloomberg zealously defended and didn't apologize for until he decided to jump into the 2020 presidental race.
FYI, two of the first statewide trans inclusive non discrimation laws were passed in Minnesota and Iowa, so contrary to your 2016 transphobic opinion, Midwesterners and folks around the country do get the point that trans rights are human rights.
Trans people are also part of everyone's family. It's why the increased support for trans rights is happening along with trans folks across the country, our Mama and Papa Bears, and our allies fighting tooth and nail to make it happen..
So if you see me pouting at the JRR tonight, now you have the backstory on why. .
