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 !

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.
