I don’t agree with him here,but lets be clear — this man comes from a family of black activists, was himself a well-known activist leader for Black LGBTQ issues in NY, is an organizer for the Democratic Party, introduced the first black queer superhero character at Marvel, and brought to the national spotlight a huge issue of racism... but because he (who I might add, has the most thorough understanding of the crime and is the only one who has to live with his conscience) has a different perspective on punishment and imprisonment, he’s an “Uncle Tom”?

The state has all the evidence they need without his cooperation. They move on people like this all the time. He was not the person who posted the video for attention anyway it was his sister. He seemed reluctant from the start to make it a public battle.

I’d probably cooperate given the same circumstances and should be prosecuted.

Do you agree with this media trope that Black people aren’t getting the vaccine because of fear stemming from historic issues like the Tuskegee experiment?

I don’t believe this trope is legitimate. I think the apathy for the vaccine is a result of a lack of the healthcare industry’s engagement with, presence in and accessibility to the Black community is the culprit.
