Then they should be teaming up against the blacks doing the discriminating, not saying that all blacks and gays should be teaming up because they're both "minorities".

I agree, and like I elaborated in my post, the people who know better should talk to their black/gay brothers and sisters. I know you said you read my post but you seem to be going right over things I already said.

And to expand, I mean talking to their gay/black brothers and sisters who are racist/homophobic.

You are completely incorrect. None other then Nero himself married two men while he was a Roman Emporer. Did you also know that one of the Roamn Emporers was a trangendered man? Homosexuality has been around for as long as humans have lived, unlike homophobia, which is a choice BTW.

Before you accuse people of "re-writing" history, you should really make sure you know the history that you accuse them of "re-writing".

FYI, the cities that I listed are not "immigrant" communities considering the fact that these were registered voters.
Precisely - and thank you for speaking up about it.

People who are still thinking clearly with their own minds about this issue know which group the "hate" comes from....despite their throwing that word at anyone who would dare speak out in response.

And I have no doubt that being from immigrant communities is a big factor in the disparity found in support for "gay" marriage. It's really very simple....their minds developed far away from American political correctness and thus still function logically and independently. Most young white Americans have been completely absorbed.

Hogwash!!! This is absolutely totally FALSE PROPAGANDA!
