    Really perturbed that other sorts of "activism" so desires to join with a "civil rights" ideology that was only needed to defend ourselves in the backdrop of slavery.

    There have been a number of "gay" pResidents, politicians, actors, actresses, etc that have been able to do what they do, while "white" people knew of their alternate lives, if they were not flamboyant about it. All this while many of our ancestors were looked upon as wretched animals and savages.

    There were no lynchings, enslaving, discriminating, or segregating of anything to the level of the slave and "African" freeman.

    So any attempt to push "black guilt" upon anyone for not wanting to push or jump on-board with this agenda is yet another one of those "straw man" arguments that don't compare.

    Don't use a struggle of a people that were forced into a condition, and no matter how hard many tried, they were still just seen as inferior... even within the guidelines and laws of the lands that they had no rights to.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarg, no amount of money and snake oil will bring me to associate Bobby Seale, Fred Hampton, Assata Shakur, African Decolonization attempts, Defeating Apartheid in South Africa (and all of Africa), Malcolm, Martin, Harriet, Nat, Ving Rhames in Rosewood, etc... with wanting to be with a friend of the same sexual persuasion.

    We can respect each others struggle, but dammit if we have to feel guilty about not reaching out to others that don't feel like they get attention.

    Case in point...

    • Two black young men driving can be profiled and suspected of doing something "improper", they will be pulled over, questioned, vehicle searched, and hopefully obey passively or else.
    • Two white young gay men driving.... nothing.

    The seat belt law is a joke, meant to assist in profiling.


    To hear an analogy of history and the acceptance of interracial relationships (which still isn't fully accepted) with same sex relationships, is what we call "reaching".
