The Rights Of A Few…

December 20th, 2014

transgender-protest-APYa like Irony? Holder, a constant critic of America’s response to racism, said yesterday that the 1964 Civil Rights act applies to transgendered people. Ironic in that blacks have been slow to recognize gay rights, actually defeating gay marriage overwhelmingly in LA County on Prop 8. But transgendered are US citizens as well, and they are often targeted by the small/weak-minded who would do violence to those they fear. So, I have to give a nod to Attorney General Eric Holder for going against the grain and supporting the rights of a very small minority by extending the interpretation of a monumental shift in American History. The rest of America should take notice.
