Since we’re on the subject, the most offense part of your argument is when people compare the horrible treatment of blacks in US one hundred and
fifty years ago to the gay rights struggle today; how absolutely insulting to the memory of those who suffered under slavery.
Ah, I heard this argument from my grandfather a while ago. Is that you, Darnell?
As a gay black man, I can tell you it is certainly more difficult to be a gay man in society than it is to be a black man.
Your argument about slavery, by the way, is absolutely retarded. Black people shouln't give a flying f*%^ about slavery any more than anyone else --
people weren't slaves because they were black, they were slaves because pirates and officials kidnapped them from their home country and sold them
into slavery in another. This was simply easier in Africa, so the slaves from Africa were cheaper, resulting in there being more black slaves.
White slaves from Scotland and London were slaves in the US for far longer than black people. These are where the terms "redneck" and "cracker" were
Black people's segregatatory offenses were their disallowance to marry who they wish
, their barring from public establishments
their typically differential social treatment an harsh treatment by general society
Perfect symmetry to homosexuality and I won't have you say any other stupid nonsense otherwise, even if you are as outrageously uneducated as my
grandfather and that brings me pangs of nostalgia.
