Its a commonly known fact homosexuality is not accepted anyways within the Black community. Its poked fun at, no pun intended.

Must be missing something. When did Obama proclaim it "Gay Pride Day?"? Not all blacks are as bigoted as you think. Maryland could not have passed marriage equality recently if not for the support it received from black voters in that state.
Bayard Rustin, a noted black homosexual activist was a staunch ally and friend of Mr & Mrs King during the long civil rights struggle. More people should remember that MLK said, "Injustice Anywhere is a threat to justice Everywhere." I think that Dr King was smiling down on the Inaugural ceremonies.

See there is no such thing as a moderate on gay issues. If somebody supports civil unions or protections for religious organizations and private businesses who don't agree with homosexuality, they are just as homophobic as somebody who says "hang the gays and hang them high!"

Oh, you know. To a conservative just being him(Obama) is reason enough to start a million and one threads about him. I wonder if it's some type of secret, deep seated, yet to be unearthed desire they have to actually want to say, "good job, President Obama!". Maybe, they fear letting their true emotions/thoughts surface, because they are comfortable with the person they are now; but that's just because it's familiar? I'm not totally sure, just what it is, but it's definitely interesting.

So, you're cool if a private business discriminates against someone because of their religion/sex/race/national origin, also? Or is just sexual orientation? I mean, in your world you can't be openly prejudice to those other things I listed, but you just might still be able to hate gays, am I right? You're pretty clueless aren't ya? Admit it, you've got nothing, and you're just typing to be typing this inane drivel for the hell of it. Because if not, that means that something is going on in your mind with your neurons/axons/dendrites/synapses that you might wish to get checked out.

Why is it that those who are most opposed to gays are the ones always talking about gay sex?
