I'd like to point out to other white people that it's only now that we've been up in arms.

Black trans women are the most at risk minority, and overwhelmingly we are silent. We don't scream for these women. We don't mourn these women. Overwhelmingly white people are comfortable to close their eyes and ears when Black queer people are being attacked.

What I want from other white people, esp non-queer white people is to think about why you rarely raise your voices when Black queer people die

Reminder that America is so deadly for Black trans women that our research centers their lives around when they will be killed.

@Cyborgneticz This is exacerbated by the fact that they're the first ones to champion taking up arms against government overreach. You'd think that includes extrajudicial murder huh.
