The Hermaphrodite: Joshua Mack or Nana Boo

Yesterday, a hermaphrodite was stabbed to death in Washington D.C.

The 21-year-old male born Joshua Mack went by the name Nana Boo. He or she was stabbed to death at the 200 block of Q Street in Northwest.

In mid afternoon, police officers received a report of an assault taking place on Q street. When these officers arrived on the scene, they found two hermaphrodites and or transgendered people suffering from stab wounds.

One of these victims was taken to Howard University Hospital and was pronounced dead at 3:02 p.m. The second victim was released from a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

As this news swirls around the internet, many are reporting that this is a hate crime - against people who were "born that way".

This isn't a hate crime nor will it involve acts of racism. According to a City Paper in Washington D.C., the area around Q street is a well known strip for prostitution.

To add, there’s a $25,000 reward out for information that will lead to Joshua’s killer.
