A Murder Over a Girl: Justice, Gender, Junior High - Ken Corbett

A Murder Over a Girl: Justice, Gender, Junior High - Ken Corbett
  1. The title suggests two people fighting over someone they both like. But no. A fourteen-year-old boy brings a gun to school and shoots a fifteen-year-old girl in the back of the head in class. It was a hate crime: Brandon murdered Leticia because she was Black and because she had only recently begun transitioning from a boy, a transition which the school actively fought. Black lives matter. Trans lives matter. I’ll just keep on with this until everyone else agrees and there are no more murders of trans girls and women, and no more damn HB 2 bills.
