Re: "If the KKK opposes gay marriage, I would ride with them."

Frenchy ·
Nice try. We were talking about BLACK gay people when I asked you the question and you responded, AND I QUOTE: "let black gays march with the gay rights types......they have more in common than I do with any of them" ( Full Text here ) Because you do contradict yourself. You express something and then claim to not feel one way or the other. As the quote above demonstrates, you clearly have formed opinions about gay people, the gay movement, gay BLACK people, etc.

Well Frenchy, If you insist...maybe i'll just go out on a crusade against their azzes and then you'll be satisified with your take on my positions with them. 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? Next time, just don't ask me....do like CF and tell me what I think....and then schit will be the way you see it and not how I said I embraced it.......

Please don't let that article detract from the real issue. It's just some FYI stats. The real issue remains... Of the 56 bowl teams, Black athletes got them there. Check out March Madness, and you'll get a similar observation. The NCAA should be more supportive of the black community, seeing as how the black community is a significant source of revenue. The NAACP should be more concerned about the FREE LABOR as well.

I think marching today is still a valid course of action. The anti-war marches that happened over the past 2 years have been very important. Obviously, it did not change any policies but it let the world know that we did not all support our government. I think that's the main purpose of a march- to let people know what we think. As far as changing policies, I think boycotting is much more effective. Hit them where it hurts-in the wallet.
