Openly Gay Student In Houston Beaten By Homophobic Mob After The School Administrators Refused To Help Him Out


Matthew Shepard's gay bashing death site

The homophobia of black Americans continues down south.

First we had Morehouse college banning homosexuality on their corny campus, and now that sentiment has spilled over into the black teens that live in the south.

Good going Morehouse, this blood is on your hands directly.

A bus driver in Houston,Texas, has been fired in connection with an openly gay student getting beaten up because of his sexuality, KPRC Local 2 reported.

JayRon Martin, 16, said when his bus stopped in his Cy-Fair neighborhood two weeks ago, nine students chased him into a neighbor’s open garage.

He said a 16-year-old boy “tried to beat the gayness out of him” using a metal pipe.

This is reminiscent of the Matthew Shepard gay bashing death case-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Shepard


Matthew Shepard...a victim of homophobia

This is a quote from Click2Houston.com…

Langham Creek High School officials acknowledged that the day of the beating, Martin asked school leaders and his bus driver for help and protection.

A Cy Fair ISD spokeswoman said an assistant principal at Langham Creek is still under review.

At question — did the assistant principal respond appropriately when an openly gay student asked for help before he was beaten by another student.

The district said the school bus driver has been fired. As for the assistant principal, a district spokeswoman said more details have come to light on how he responded, but those details are not being released now.

“The review is not completed. Thus far, his actions have not merited putting him on administrative leave. Included in the review of what happened that day are details that cannot be shared publicly because of federal law,” said Kelli Durham, Cy-Fair ISD’s spokeswoman.

CNN is reporting that one 16-year-old accused attacker was charged with aggravated assault.

Martin’s mother wants the charge upgraded to a hate crime.

Unfortunetly, when they get out of jail, Morehouse college will welcome them into their homophobic fold of corny hypocritical misguided black men…http://www.thegrio.com/2009/10/morehouse-college-that-legendary-institution.php

Let’s make the world a safer place for JayRon Martin and let’s celebrate our differences,and not attempt to stifle or beat them out of any of our children…
