Yep.....it is these house negroes that make the advancement of black people harder due to the push in the opposite direction they assist the white racist CON with. What I really resent about those negroes is that they benefitted from the collective efforts of others and now want to nullify the same for those behind them.....a lower piece of shit the earth has not known......the blkCON house-negro.....sad azz bowed-head fuckers........

Will that satisfy your need to tell me what I really think about gays when I said specifically I really do not give a damn if they suceed or fail and I would not assist or inhibit them?

I see your point, EP. I may have to disagree with you because many Arabs (and South Asians) before 9/11 didn't care that much about neither Blacks nor Latinos.
