CBS local in San Francisco is streaming Nia Wilson's funeral

Right now, a minister from the Nation of Islam is giving a very moving and righteous appeal against racism and the incompetence of BART and local government in combating violence.


Nia was a young woman brutally murdered on a BART platform last week.

There was a very good New Yorker article about her death:


This one speaks to me and hurts. I am white, but my partner is not. He travels back and forth on BART late at night often, and he stands on that platform several times a week.

BART violence seems to be getting worse over time.

That poor woman, her sister, and her family.
