It depends on your position on the intersectionality totem pole. Omar is a black female Muslim so she's allowed to say anything, but otherwise you'd probably have to be gay yourself.

Gay people have reclaimed it, haven't they?

WE don't need YOU, Rep. Pressley -- people who encourage hatred and racism -- and especially not in Congress!

Trump has amazing political instincts. Putting the spotlight on these wackos, and having the entire liberal establishment come out to defend them, works hugely to his advantage.

I posted this topic yesterday (or Monday maybe) and it got tossed into the Trump is RACIST humongous thread. I hope this one stays separate.

Now ... why aren't her comments getting airplay on major news outlets? Her comments tie in perfectly with Trump's tweets, AOC calling Pelosi racist - some journalist could've done a great story on it all.

But ... crickets.

I haven't. Never liked the word before and still don't.

the Q word (lmao) has become like the N word. Only specific Americans have the right to say it.

The thing that truly pisses me off about people like Pressley is when they call out other people (whether Brown, Black, Muslim, or gay) to fall in line with them or she will find them useless. People who throughout their lives may have faced much criticism and prejudice and looked for acceptance, were turned down by some, but grew stronger as a result. People who learned themselves how to forge relationships with others and find commonalities with them in order to educate them on their differences that would create stronger bonds with them and make real change - that is how you reach people.

You don't reach people by giving ultimatums, yelling at them, and demanding what they should be doing and telling them how horrible they are if they don't fall in line with your belief system. She's such an idiot and proving how much of a bigot she truly is.

So a black dude who simply wants to live his life, take care of his family and be a good citizen is not needed?
Im friends with a gay dude and his husband. They live their lives rather quietly and are both, GASP, REPUBLICANS. They are not needed?

People like I describe are EXACTLY what is needed.
