A protester who mentioned the “oppression” of the LGBT community at a pro-Trayvon Martin rally in Washington, D.C., over the weekend was chastised by a female demonstrator for mingling the two causes. “This is about a black kid getting shot down because he was black, not no gay sh*t!” she said.
“The case of Trayvon Martin makes something abundantly clear…there’s democracy in this country for a group of people, for the 1 percent, and the rest of us, the working class, black and brown people, LBGTQ people, we don’t get democracy,” a bearded protester says on video, speaking through a megaphone.
“We get capitalism, we get white supremacy, we get homophobia and LGBTQ oppression,” he added.” We’ve got to change that, and if there’s any question about, do we have democracy in this country, I think the case of Trayvon Martin answers that question very clearly.”
Immediately following his comments, another pro-Trayvon Martin protester took the megaphone and angrily dismissed any correlation between Martin’s death and LGBT rights.
“I would just like to say, this is not about no damn LGBT, it ain’t about none of that bullsh*t about that sir, I’m sorry,” she says in the video. “This is about a black kid getting shot down because he was black, not no gay sh*t. None of that!”
“My people just got shot down because he was walking down the street with a f**king hood on his head,” the woman added.
A number of other protests also spoke at the same rally. Watch the video below:
