“Did You Know There Are 1 Million Homeless Students Enrolled In Public School-Most Of Them, Of Color?” https://youtu.be/nGI-7eGSgdU
(The below is a post that I just made on my blog.)
Notice something in this video. This video talks about homeless, minority children. However, while talking about homeless minority children, the speaker mentioned children that identify themselves as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transsexual (LBGT). Now, the speaker is only reading an article written by Civic Enterprise—a nonpartisan think-tank group. However, my attached article shows that this think-tank is funded by Republicans (right) and Democrats (left). Furthermore, it’s spearheaded by a Democrat. Therefore, it’s not nonpartisan (having no leaning to the left or right).
Now, we already know that the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, and Queer (LBGTQ) community is liberally (Democratically) supported. They’re also conservatively (Republically) supported as well. They threw money to both sides—even if we don’t hear it often spoken of.
Now, the reason I made this post is because—by the article speaking about minorities while including LGBT members, means LGBT identity people are now considered minorities. Their lifestyle choice has now granted them minority status. The minority spectrum just keeps opening wider. First, it was “women” which allowed the dominant society to redirect the set-asides--created for us—back to the dominant society. This is why all motions we create for people in this country classified as Black/African-American need to be specifically requested for those classified as Black/African-American. Everyone is a person of color. White is a color. Everyone that is a member of a group that comprises of a smaller number than the dominant group is a minority. However, this country has expressly signaled out areas where the presence of melanin is especially prevalent in the inhabitants and has labeled the people as Black/African-American—once they come here. So, we must ask for things specifically for ourselves.
