(What a trip that was!)
Anyway, when the bus station used to be on Fayette St. it was one of the creepiest looking places I had seen, as far as the people hanging around there at night, and that, even when "fitting in". (at day it didn't look that bad).
Looking for this Kenwood Ave. I see that is to the east, and I imagine it is one of those old compact little rowhouse areas typical of the city. Didn't know there was racial tension, just figured it was the poor inner city.
This type of thing is a shame, because conservatives are taking it all to reignite racial tension, by claiming blacks as a whole are some sort of "problem group" who are being unfairly favored by the "PC" government at everyone else's expense, and that "hate crimes" are only there to protect them, and other new "victimization" groups they are against, such as sexual orientation. So they'll complain that this is being called a hate crime only because of her being "trans", and not also because of race, which they claim only works one way.
