FAMU Hazing Victim Was Gay. Prepare For Shit Storm
A Quick Background
First and foremost, let me put my own beliefs upfront. While I have no reservations in my mind that would set aside a personal viewpoint regarding your sexual orientation, I believe that reality is not as kind. Let’s face it, there just isn’t a clear path to complete unity on this issue.
Simple-minded people will always persecute those who aren’t similar to them, considered normal, or live up to their interpretation of their god’s book.
Crimes committed based on race, ethnicity, religion, sexual-orientation, gender, or age are hate crimes, pure and simple. If it is the motivation that guides you on your quest of nefarious behavior, then you have committed the worst kind of crime that exists and you deserve the worst kind of punishment.
So when I read that the FAMU hazing victim told his friends and family that he was gay, I instantly began searching for my raincoat and umbrella. Folks, the shit-storm’s a’ brewin’. The horizon smells mighty awful.

The day was September 17, 2011. It was a normal day for me. So normal, in fact, that I cannot even remember what I was doing that day. It was a typical day at the end of a typical workweek. I was probably nursing a hangover from the Friday night before- I do live in a college town, after all.
What I hadn’t been aware of was the start of a rather interesting protest situation occurring on Wall Street in New York aimed at raising awareness of the greed in corporate America. Or was it for the end of the “military industrial complex”? Or for redistribution of wealth? Or for healthcare, or jobs, or one of 100 different reasons that cause people to assemble and yell and point signs at no one in particular.
