Transgender acceptance and real courage


Melissa Harris-Perry’s “Open Letter” goes out to Hot 97 Program Director Ebro Darden, who refused to accept the resignation of Mister Cee, a DJ at the radio station who admitted to sex with transgender women. She says, “Mr. Darden, when you intervened this week, you helped to interrupt this practice. For a moment you made room to question this automatic reaction. A reaction that has life and death consequences for transwomen.”
