Jayron Martin, a 16 year old high school freshman who was beaten with a metal pipe by a classmate while eight others watched last week is afraid to return to school. The openly gay 16 year old tells Houston's KHOU-TV that before the incident happened he begeed two principals at his school and the school bus driver for help but to no avail.

“All they kept saying was, ‘We going to get you. We going to fight you,’ and all that and so when they started coming after me they were like, ‘You’re not going to be gay anymore.’ They just kept hitting me,” Jayron said.

"I'm disgusted", Jayron's mother Lakenya Martin tells KHOU-TV. “When the child does what they’re supposed to do and the adult doesn’t, what are you supposed to say then? How do you make him feel comfortable? How do you give him back that sense of security."

The beating finally ended when a neighbor pointed a shotgun at the attackers and cocked it. One of Martin’s attackers, another 16-year-old, has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

This is the third hate crime in the past week that has caught the attention of the media all of which involved people of color. Puerto Rican teen George Mercado was decpaitated, dismembered, and burned and 16 year old Jason Mattison of Baltimore was raped, stabbed in the neck and throat and stuffed in a closet. When will the violence end?

You know what?
I was a little upset reading the Trans story and the inaction of other people,
But now…… My Blood pressure is UP!!
This story, plus the Jason Mattison story, PLUS the story of the teacher putting the hit out on the Gay student, PLUS the killing of a Puerto Rican Gay teen is becoming a very frightening trend that is happening quite frequently.
What gets me, all these events happened with the LAST TWO WEEKS!!!!
And, the victims ARE ALL TEEENS!!!

Just last week controversial artist Donnie McClurkan raised eyebrows with a “testimony” at a C.O.G.I.C. conference that was nothing less than controversial, but what strikes me is that there is NOW a growing trend to suppressing Gay Black Youth at any means necessary; whether it be through violence, or through religion.

Because our young people are coming out a earlier ages, there seems to be a definite push to repress, and eliminate homosexuality in whatever means Blacks (or people of color) know how to do and its killing us!
If WE don’t wake up and start to mobilize and get out the effort, we are going to be the cause of our peril.
Just like I said on the previous thread -

This is just another example folks.
