Have you guys watched this vid?


YouTube - Homophobic Harassment During Gay Pride


Cultures collided Sunday when a gay man was harassed by more than a dozen Somali youths while heading home after the Twin Cities GLBT Pride Festival. Shouting “I hate gay people,” “**** gay people,” and “Gay is not the way,” the youths followed the man for several blocks. The entire incident was caught on video.
The person who posted the video to YouTube wrote:
My friend and I were leaving the Gay Pride Festival … and came across a group of Somalian kids who asked my friend if he was gay. When he answered “yes”, they proceeded to harass him and me with verbal threats and even throwing rocks at my friend at one point.

What do you guys think?

personally, I think if they truely don't like gay people, then they should go back to Africa where there are "none".

repeat mantra: Diversity is a strength!!!

Gays and Blacks or Gays and Immigrants aren't getting along now? Gee whiz, cry me a river.

Liberals asked for all this diversity and now it isn't working out like they planned, cry me river.

Man, I wonder how the pc groupthink leftists on this board will handle this thread. I mean, does gay trump black, or vice versa? Me thinks, it will be avoided like the plague.

Wow, I just watched the video. These kids were a little mob, very threatening. They were shouting, "gay is not the way", "F**K F*GS", "Straight Power" and "I hate gays". This had to be very intimidating, and I feel bad for the gay dudes. Did anyone else also notice two cops walked by and just looked back and did nothing?

On a side note, how long until a leftist starts blaming white Christians conservatives, despite the fact that these punks were black Muslims?

If I was the gay guy:

"Oh look! There's an antelope!" (pointing over there while running the opposite direction)

pluralism, the state religion, is a religion that has not caught on with immigrants.
when the word "diversity" is used they mean lots of pretty white women and tourist money.

I don't understand why every single thread must turn into an us vs. them discussion. When I look at the video I see a bunch of kids who are completely inappropriate and should be ashamed of their behavior. The race should not matter. As Americans (not Democrats or Republicans or Blacks or Whites etc.) we should be ashamed of this as well. We currently live in a society where young people think it's ok to harass LGBTs, and teens commit suicide because they are accused of being gay in school. As Americans, need to stand up to this nonsense and say that it will not be tolerated.
