In Light of Michael Sandy's Death

As I woke up this morning in sunny Tuscon, Arizona - so sad and angry to find that someone was killed because they were GAY. As you all know this hits close to home with me; as I was a vicitim of a gay hate crime back in June this past summer. AMERICA, WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM? I AM SO SICK TO MY STOMACH, CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY WOULD SOMEONE DO SUCH A THING; JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR SEXUAL PREFERANCE. THAT'S TIRED!!!!!!! This needs to stop. We need to talk to these kids, and educate to them what their parents and piers failed to do. It is especially our government that has paved the way for these things to happen. I am so upset right now. Like I said, I am in Tuscon; here to perform for a few thousand at their annual Gay Pride, and I am at wits end with this breaking news. I really can't even get through this blog, but children I am going to try my best.

I would like to send Love to Michael Sandy's family, friends, and to all of my brothers and sisters who all have to face this type of adversity in the world we live in today. You think that America is a progressive country, well guess what, its not!!!!! How many more attacks and deaths will it take for our government to wake the ^%^&-UP and PROTECT US. We are human beings; we breath the same, blead the same, and shit the same. STEP UP TO THE PLATE, AND LETS STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING.


Children, feel free to write in to me anytime to tell me how you feel about anything. I am certainly here for everybody; as you guys have given me so much support throughout my career.

May the Lord, GOD bless us and protect us, for these people who have so much hate against us GAY people shall learn that we are wonderful people - children of GOD!!!!!

Please light a candle for MICHAEL SANDY. May he rest in peace.

I am angry, but I am still going to put on an amazing show tonight! He will be with me in spirit!

Tuscon - Get Ready!!!!!


Keith Boykin of BET writes: Michael Sandy, the 29-year-old black gay man who was attacked in a gay bashing incident last Sunday, has died. Sandy reportedly died around noon today after the family decided to remove the life support respirator that had kept him alive. That information has been confirmed by sources close to his family. Police are reportedly considering whether to elevate the charges against the suspects as a result of Sandy's death.

Black LGBT organizers and activists vowed to hold a rally on Monday to demand an end to hate violence in the city and to hold city leaders accountable. The rally is scheduled to take place at 5 p.m. on Monday at New York City Hall. The rally is being sponsored by People of Color In Crisis, the New York State Black Gay Network, Gay Men of African Descent, the New York City Anti-Violence Project and the National Black Justice Coalition.
