I have seen a lot of criticism of Gaga’s drag persona, Jo Calderone, on my dash lately.
Let me say that dressing in drag and being trans is NOT the same thing.
Drag is an ACT, meant to show that we are judged by how we present our gender to society.
Being trans is when one is physically one gender and mentally another, and when a trans person dresses as their preferred gender it is NOT doing drag.
An insight on how black men are harassed and bullied by the police on a daily basis in the UK.
Percentage of black males among people stopped and searched by the police:
2009-10: 18% In London : 33.5%
And keep in mind that black people represent about 2% of the UK population.
Yet the general consensus would like you to think that racism does not exist in the UK and that the structural discrimination of the police and the judiciary system that black people have been complaining forever, is just a myth.
