In my city, the population breakdown is 1/3 African-American, 1/3 Latino-American, and less than 1/3 White-American.

Yet, the pride parade here is almost totally White. It's embarrassing for Whites as a people, this is what it has come to...plus also, now the biggest parade in this city is a homosexual parade. Ponder that on July 4. What a joke the US is becoming.

Most black and Mexicans who are gay are very leery about publicly coming out. Those communities are far less accomodating to homosexuality than the white community is.

Are you saying they are intolerant? I thought only Whites could be that.

It is becoming a joke. It's not like that group has any respect for anything (possibly the blacks and Latinos has some)

being intolerant of intolerance is what most liberal stances are... you have to draw lines somewhere.. and if that line offends you... then don't be intolerant and expect tolerance...
this notion that liberals are intolerant of the crazy right wingers is absurd and an oxymoron...
Believe it or not there are people with justified and reasonable views on the right side of the aisle.. don't use their position to try and normalize intolerance... nobody is going to drink that koolaide.. sorry

There seem to be quite a few cultures represented on the coverage of the gay pride parade in Manhattan that's on the tv right now.

Nope. Blacks can be very intolerant and quite prejudiced. Ask any white guy that has ever dated or married one of "their women". I am married to a Canadian of West Indian ethnicity and I have caught hell a few times in public just because they THOUGHT she is black!
What they cannot be is RACIST. Unlike whites, blacks and Mexicans do not have the POWER to make their prejudices negatively affect whites as a race. On an individual basis, they can make whites uncomfortable but whites do not depend on blacks for jobs, medical care, housing or much of anything whereas blacks and Mexicans are highly dependent on whites.
