Re: Is the Black-LGBT Divide Exaggerated?

The majority of the entire American population as a whole are not as "supportive" of gay issues .... as the gay community wants them to be!! The Black community is no more or less different than everybody else in America in that regard. MOST people are agreeable to the support of (specific) gay rights (i.e., non-discrimination, prosecution of violence as a hate-crime) ... While MOST people are against the issue of gay marriage ! The attitudes of Black people are always singled out when it...

That's about my take on it. I really don't know where all these claims that Black people are sooooooo homophobic are coming from; probably from exaggeration as said in this article.

Ulysses Jones, a member of the church where Hooks was pastor, said Hooks died early Thursday at his home, following a long illness. Hooks became executive director of the NAACP in 1977, taking...

Many of the states that have these laws against "felons" voting, it is often only while they are serving time or are on probation or parole . Many people with felony convictions do not know that once they are no longer incarcerated and no long on probation or parole, they can vote just like anyone else. I will give you that, if you violate the law, you give up most privileges, including the right to vote, but once you have paid your debt to society your privileges should be reinstated, and...
