Ugh: Gay Coalition Issues Trayvon Martin Statement
A bevy of far left gay and transgender groups released a statement this week in support of Trayvon Martin. This is despite the fact that Trayvon attacked George Zimmerman because he believed Zimmerman might be a gay rapist.
Good grief – get informed people!
A coalition of national transgender LGBT rights organizations, led by the National Black Justice Coalition and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, today issued the following open letter:
An Open Letter: Trayvon Deserves Justice
35 LGBT groups issue Trayvon Martin statement
We cannot begin to imagine the continued pain and suffering endured by Trayvon Martin’s family and friends. We stand in solidarity with them as they continue to fight for justice, civil rights and closure. And we thank everyone who has pushed and will continue to push for justice.
Trayvon Martin deserves justice and his civil rights. We support the organizations and community leaders who are urging the federal government to explore every option to ensure that justice is served for Trayvon and that his civil rights are honored and respected. But our work does not end there: we will honor Trayvon Martin by strengthening our commitment to end bias, hatred, profiling and violence across our communities.
We represent organizations with diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender constituencies. Our community has been targets of bigotry, bias, profiling and violence. We have experienced the heart-breaking despair of young people targeted for who they are, who they are presumed to be, or who they love: Rashawn Brazell, Lawrence King, Ali Forney, Brandon Teena, Brandon White, Matthew Shepard, Marco McMillian, Angie Zapata, Sakia Gunn, Gwen Araujo and countless others.
Every person, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity, must be able to walk the streets without fear for their safety.
Justice delayed is justice denied and in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “a right delayed is a right denied.” We honor Trayvon by seeking justice for all people.
As Ann Coulter says – TO AVOID LOOKING LIKE A CRIMINAL, DON’T COMMIT A CRIME.
Someone needs to forward this to the uninformed gay groups.
