I don't think religious Black people are more homophobic than religious White people. They are on the same playing field. It is just that there is no Republican gay man married to another man running to be a Presidential candidate.

If there was -- there would be the discussion of whether or not the Evangelicals could vote for a gay man. And bringing up that discussion doesn't make you homophobic.

It will be hard for a gay candidate like Butters to secure the black vote. On average, the black community is not as open to gays as the white community.

All it proves is that the MSM and the Democratic establishment will attempt to smear anyone who isn't happy about their awful campaigning and political policies, even individuals they claim to fight the hardest for (I.E. African-Americans).

There are some in the African-American population who aren't big on homosexuality. However, at the end of the day, this is going to be a big question. Who is a bigger threat to me?

For the average African-American, a homosexual isn't a threat to them. There might be a lifestyle issue, but not an imminent threat. The threat is someone who might pass policies that are imminently harmful to African-Americans, or someone who seems to have a disdain for African-Americans.

This is the same kind of crap that white folks liked to blame black voters in California for the passage of Prop 8 in 2008. Convieniently ignoring evangelical white voters or the Mormon voters, or that black voters were such a small percentage of the electorate in California that even if they voted against it, it wouldn't have made a difference.

At least this issue of racism and homophobia is not being applied to White people this time!

They had 8 years of hope and change. Turned out there was no hope and no change in anyone’s back pocket.

NBC Strongly Implies African Americans Are Homophobic If They Won't Elect A Homosexual President

WOW! Is NBC now saying that anyone Black is now a Deplorable if they don't vote for a Democrat?
And specifically a Gay Democrat at that ..... looks like they are really pushing Butti-Whatever.
Pretty clear that TeamObama doesn't want Joe Biden - is the gay guy their 'chosen one'?

That's pretty amazing when you think about it ..... AND, it didn't work out so well for the LEFT in 2016.

That's exactly what it was.

All it proves is you obviously failed to listen to the interview where no one was smeared.
