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 !

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.

CEO of Nestle , Peter Brabeck The way in which this sociopath clearly has zero regard for the human race outside of his own wealth and the development of Nestle, who has been caught funding attacks against GMO labeling, can be witnessed when watching and listening to his talk on the issue. This is a company that actually goes into struggling rural areas and extracts the groundwater for their bottled water products, completely destroying the water supply of the area without any compensation .

As long as the American majority refuses to accept that too may psychopaths and sociopaths have been given positions of power and 'authority' , and that America's racism problems stem from that FACT , racism is not going to ever end in this country, and racism, along with all of the other pathologies of psychopaths and sociopaths being socially normalized and legally codified into America's social, governmental, and political structure, i s going to be the means to America's end .
