“What is 10 pages compared to 400 years of racial discrimination. You can hide the fact that your Gay, you can't hide being Black... So what are you saying?? All I'm saying is that its disrespectful to the Black Culture as a whole for people in the Homosexual community to compare their struggle to the African Americans struggle in the past .”
“I hear you point... But it wasn't Africans doing the raping of women, killing livestock and burning orchards in the New World.. It was the Europeans.. After slavery was over, they lied to the world that blacks were beast and sub-human, in actuality it was the Europeans conquers that evil...”
“DADT and DOMA are a form of JIM CROW??? Please stop right there... Have people been lynched because they are gay..NO!! They were lynched because they were black.. it didn't matter if they were gay or straight.. they were black! So what are you saying?? Whats oppressing you??
There are laws against Race, Religion, and Sexual Orientations crimes ie. Hate Crimes, because of African Americans being KILLED because of skin color in the past.. as a result, these laws that ALL Americans enjoy came from the blood, sweat and tears of African Americans.. So please don't make a comparison..
If you want to argue that DADT and DOMA is wrong and discriminatory, I would agree with you.. but to make a comparison to JIM CROW and African Americans, is downing playing my history and millions of other Americans history.”

“I just now did an engine search of "gay people killed for being gay" and got TEN PLUS PAGES of results. Oh and btw, all those laws did not come about SOLELY because of the blood, sweat and tears of African-American -- we had plenty of white allies. And, the suffrage movement came first. And the modern gay rights movement started with the Mattachine Society founded in 1950. The Stonewall riots came in 1969. As to oppression, it is legal in more than half the states to refuse to rent an apartment to someone because they are gay, to refuse to hire someone because they are gay, or worse FIRE someone because they are gay. No legal recourse.”
“What is interesting is I had an argument with a Jehovah Witness, about the drawings of Jesus in their pamphlet. I asked, why is Jesus white? They responded does it matter, I said YES... because i never seen a white person pass out pamphlets of Jesus being black..
The guy look confused and said they had many black members in their church and Jesus is all loving... i played with him a little bit and said, so are you saying its ok to worship with you because white Jesus loves me the same a you... Then I said how about this...come to my church were we have the true HISTORIC painting of Jesus and its ok to worship with us, because black Jesus loves you and I the same. The look on the guy face was PRICELESS!!”

“your post was priceless. the true historic painting of Jesus? which one would that be? christ was a jew so therefore... i think nowadays everyone can pretty much conclude Jesus was not blonde with blue eyes.”
“Ol' Goodie!!! Now that he's finished with manipulating the markets to make his and his partners pockets fatter. He can focus of getting President Obama reelected, but giving him an undisclosed amount of cash....God Bless America.. smh”

“Be fair with your statement. There are people who do this on both sides, left and right. The left has Soros, other private donors, and a string of large corporations. The right has the Koch brothers, other private donors, and a string of large corporations. That's the honest answer, both sides do it for better or worse.”
“I hope you all know Lauren cheated on Marley.. That's not his baby! After having 5 kids and find out the 6th one is not yours... I bet that's a tough pill to swallow for any man... so he had to move on...”

“Nice try buddy. At least you made me laugh this morning.”
“Its pretty unfair to compare a politician to Martin Luther King, Jr. President Obama is a politician nothing more nothing less...
Its not his job to be on the front line for all social issues. JFK spoke on Civil Rights, but wasn't on the front line, why because he had Global Issues such as WARS! Men like Malcolm X and MLK handled the Civil Rights issues.
President Obama has bigger issues such as WARS and A FALLING ECONOMY that affects ALL AMERICANS!! He speaks on the gays having marriage rights, but its not his job to be on the front line...
and one other thing LETS STOP COMPARING GAY RIGHTS TO THE AFRICAN AMERICAN CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT! It disrespectful to my family who grew up in the South and had to deal with the Jim Crow Laws, murders, Church bombing, discrimination in housing, employment, health care, federal loans, education, etc.”

“And what do you think DADT and DOMA are but a form of Jim Crow laws. Even Civil Unions opposed to full marriage rights are a form of "Separate but (not) Equal". Get a clue already. GLBT people are the only citizens in America today where laws exists to single them out for oppression and discrimination.”

“As someone in both camps, it IS okay for the LGBT community to the Black Civil Rights movement. Blacks don't have a monopoly on oppression.”
Hiddenfangs on Jul 20, 2011 at 06:23:46
“Please. African Americans do not own the civil rights movement. Every minority has suffered. The Oppression Olympics is ugly. And plenty of LGBT people have fought and died and suffered as well. LGBT people, in fact, suffer all those forms of discrimination NOW.”
“SMH.. poor Christians stuck on a book that was written by King James of England and they really think thats the holy word.. smh.. How can they dismiss Science.. What interesting i was listening to this show called Good Game Radio it was an interview with a Black Atheist.. this guy lost his religion because he was trying to be a better Christian by looking deeper into the Bible... http://www.goodgameradio.com/there-is-no-god-and-you-know-it-interview-with-a-black-atheist/”

“Good post. I'll fan and fave ya on this one. The only people whose opinions Hillis cares about are his team and his owners. As long as he moves the football and gets the yards, the first downs and the TD's he can look like Gumby for all they care.”
