Mark Carson was the Gay Man who was Killed in Greenwich Village


Mark Carson was the man that was murdered by a homophobic gunman in Greenwich Village this weekend. Last night, folks held a vigil for home.

Here's more about Mark:
Mr. Carson, who was 32, had recently moved to Brooklyn from Harlem after scrimping and saving money from his job at a yogurt shop in Midtown, according to Kay Allen, a friend for more than a decade.
“He was a proud gay man,” Ms. Allen said. “A fabulous gay man.” She noted that he loved going to the Village.
“His spirit was too big for this city,” she said. “He didn’t have a negative bone in his body.”

Mark was killed because he was gay. I never thought that NYC, especially the Village would be considered a dangerous place. For many years, my friends and I would hang out in the Village. I never thought twice about my safety, in fact, I felt completely at ease there.

For the friends and family of Mark, my heart goes out to you.

To the fam of NYC, stay strong.

Definitely strength in numbers. That's my one big fear I have if I ever transition. If I go anywhere alone, will I be safe?

As time goes by, I'm quickly losing interest in NYC. I'll rather take my chances in other cities at least I know the risks there.

This makes me sick . That fuck that shot that man for no reason should be shot too. Nowadays walking away from something like this will get you shot in the back. America is starting to look like a sad place and thirldish. BASH BACK!!!

I SAW A VIDEO CLIP OF THE LATE-NIGHT VIGIL HELD FOR, Mark Carson, IN GREENWICH VILLAGE. A CAUCASIAN MALE FROM MILWAUKEE SPOKE AT THE EVENT. WHEN I SAW Mr. Carson's PHOTOGRAPH, I IMMEDIATELY UNDERSTOOD THE "HOOPLA,"

CAUCASIAN HOMOSEXUALS ARE CONSTANTLY CRITICIZED FOR HAVING BIAS BASED ON RACE. BEING "OVERTLY PUBLIC" ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO Mr. Carson IS A MEDIA SIDESHOW DESIGNED TO SHOW CAUCASIAN HOMOSEXUALS HAVE "CHANGED." FURTHER EXAMPLES OF THIS NEGRO-HOMOSEXUAL "LOVEFEST" ARE Jason Collins AND Frank Ocean.
