Bi erasure is an all too pernicious issue and one that’s seldom covered in mainstream media. Even today, people (whether straight or otherwise) still get confused and persist in treating bisexuals as if they’re straight or gay depending on the gender of their partner. This bi erasure in turn contributes to discrimination, with reports of biphobia (and shouts of "breeder", particularly directed at bisexuals of colour) occurring this year at pride festivals worldwide. If bisexuals can’t even feel included at Pride, where are the safe spaces?
This article in the Advocate gives a refreshing, all too rare serious look at how bisexual people can get forgotten in the fight for marriage equality.

Miles Davis covered in blood after an altercation with police

"Altercation" sounds so polite, like it was a mutual thing and not one man getting assaulted by the police. Miles got beat up by the police.
The cops assaulted Miles because he was black. He was standing outside Birdland where he just performed and was taking a break. His name was on the marquee. They saw him escort a white female friend from the club into a taxi and then they approached him after as he was taking a smoke break. The cops told him to “move on”. Miles said he was playing at the club and was on break. They weren’t hearing any of that. One cop then punched him in the stomach, while another one cracked him on the head with a nightstick. That’s why he’s covered in blood. He was a victim of police brutality.
