The Saga Continues...
Bailey v. New York Law School et al.
I will share with you a message similar to the one I shared on a GoFundme Page. If I had a choice between a criminal or civil prosecution I would not be in court today. It isn't about the money. However, when you are the victim of a crime--and I was the victim of several crimes committed by several individuals--I believe in asking for the maximum penalty, particularly if the matter concerns a victim of color and was committed by wrongdoers who definitely know better.
The U.S. has a long and rich history of diminishing the claims and injuries of individuals who are not white in the U.S., and I cannot stay silent as it is happening to me. I have already suffered more than the court has permitted to be included in this litigation, and to be honest, I partially agree, but for this single reason: many of the injuries I have suffered should be criminally and not civilly prosecuted. However, the New York Attorney General has already declined to criminally prosecute wrongdoers in this case who are members of the legal profession.
People associated with New York Law School (including Dorothy McAuliffe, NYLS alum) have sought to denigrate the suit and me personally. That, however, will not prevent me from moving forward. We will fight until there is victory. And if the legal end diminishes the acts, omissions, and injuries in this case, we will go to war against hate, discrimination, racism, tolerance of violence committed against women of color, views that decriminalize unwanted sexual acts when the victim is a woman of color, and looking the other way when wrongdoers are notable persons--and we will overcome.
Still, what do I know? Most don't expect me to win. Many have written me off as the brown skin beauty with an electric smile.
To those people I'd say
Keep underestimating me
