End the targeting of our communities!

The heartbreaking news of some brothers torturing and targeting some gay brothers in the Bronx a few weeks back produced the same stupid hypocrisy by the politicians.  The incredibly removed and out of touch millionaire dictator Bloomberg and his side kick, Christine Quinn, came out with the NYPD chief to denounce those crimes.  The denunciation was right, but the lack of responsibility for the gendered homophobic racist war on our communities was of course left unsaid.  They are so hypocritical, and so short-sighted/sited. They think only folks of color with few resources (that Wall Street stole!) are the criminals, and they only believe in the law and disorder of the NYPD.

We need community interventions that transform homophobia and violence in our communities, that end the targeting of women, and that end the targeting of our communities by the authorities, who have not had legitimacy for a long, long time.  How do we transform our minds and our hearts and our behaviors?  More killer cops on the streets and in our hoods, hate crime laws that cage our communities to make a buck for the state surely will not do it.

Community conversation tomorrow in the South Bronx lead by Casa Atabex Aché and the folks at BAAD!

Hate turned inward, us reproducing what the NYPD does to our communities, destroys us!

Remember what the NYPD did to Abner Louima and to so many other members of our communities!
