I've also been told by black people I've worked with that I should think twice about going to the mall right down the street even in the daytime, because it is a predominately black mall, and I should be careful.
    Mondawmin, perhance? I used to explore Baltimore (and Washington) on my way to Virginia in the late 80's, and one time, I stopped by there, and didn't realize the character of the neighborhood (I thought the bad sections were all closer to downtown), and there was a ramp wrapping around the outside of the building. I used to try to run when I saw downgrades a lot (exercise), so when I did, I was stopped by police, and then I realized it was a bad area. Later that same trip, when I'm changing in Richmond (heading to Norfolk), and I had about three hours in the midnight to wait, I decided to walk down Monument ave towards downtown, and was stopped and turned back by an officer there, as well. What helped me in both cases was my military ID (I was on break right after training).
    (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.

    This kind of shit is springing up all over the place lately. Apparently there's some transgender professor at the University of Oklahoma who, it's suspected, has been denied tenure strictly on the basis of her gender identity. Here's a blog that goes into detail.

    This kind of thing has happened a lot over the last 30-40 years (with professors losing tenure, pastors being kicked out of their denomination, etc.), and right now transpeople are actually doing better than they have been. The big difference now is that (1) non-trans people are actually sticking up for their trans colleagues en masse, publicly, and (2) the Internet enables knowledge of these incidents to reach the entire population very quickly, whereas before no one ever typically knew it was going on. which permitted people to be victimized quietly.

    I guess what surprises me most is that this is a public school, not a private religious one. Still, it's in Oklahoma. They're pretty conversative in terms of LGBT issues, and religion and politics are mixed together there.

    Why would you need to wash your hands in that situation?

    Because someone might think you were a burden to society and urge the death penalty?

    I haven't watched the video, I don't think I need to. I find it mightly distrubing how people resort to voilence to get thier point across. I don't think I would have intervened, I'm not sure, I've been known to do strange things in the heat of the moment. I know I would have done some thing...even if it was call the cops, and I know I would have performed basic first aid afterward.

    Yeah, Jen already talked about it but there have been a lot of nasty things done to people based on their trans status. There was a trans guy who developed cervical cancer, and couldn't find a doctor to treat it. The first doctor he found willing was 130 miles away. Violence and murder isn't terribly uncommon either. If you want to watch a horribly depressing movie based on a true story, watch "Boys Dont Cry".
