One in six hate crimes are motivated by the victim's sexual orientation.
Yet Federal laws don't protect these people.
Watch the video.
Then tell your Senators to support the Matthew Shepard Act.


Fight Hate Crimes


One hate crime is committed every hour.
One minute of your time today could equal hate crimes protections for millions.

DO SOMETHING.

I was 12, or maybe 13, when Matthew Shepard was murdered, and that was one of the hardest things for me to go through. I just remember being scared shitless, thinking "What if this were to happen to me?" I just wish that didn't have to happen to any 12 year-old, or anyone of any age for that matter. Nobody deserves to be scared for their own safety and well-being...

This is what my senator replied with:


June 21, 2007

Mr. ****** *****
******************
******** TN 37***-****

Dear Mr. *****,

Thank you for taking the time to contact my office to share your concerns about S. 1105, the upcoming hate crimes legislation. Your input is important to me, and I appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts.

As you know, S.1105 was introduced in the Senate on April 12, 2007. This bill has been referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. If S. 1105 should come before the Senate for a vote, I will not support it.

Thank you again for your letter. I hope you will continue to share your thoughts with me over the next six years.


Sincerely,

A

Bob Corker

United States Senator



No explanation, no substantiation, just "Tough luck buster, now enjoy the next six years of my stupidity."


GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Oh, THAT old racist! I sort of miss the old state - brought a tear to my eye ... (having lived in Tennessee for several years up until February)

BTW, what is Harold Ford doing these days? Or have you heard anything from him lately down there?
