Derogatory slur used by Division Chair of MTA Surface elected union rep Willie Rivera

Elected TWU local 100 union rep Willie Rivera used a derogatory slur “tranny” to attack union member Tramell Thompson. “Tranny” is a slur that carries a long history of hatred, violence and oppression. Willie Rivera has a long history or threating and intimidating union members as a way for him to be respected through fear. Local 100 leaders seems to cosign off on this derogatory verbal abuse as if it’s a way of life at local 100. What are you me thoughts on this topic?
