What's with this down low phenomenon? Is it mostly referring to black men? If so, why?

Why don't we hear about down low Hispanic or Asian men?

Why the heck is a "down low" hitting on a random woman?

my wild guess is that homosexuality is particularly frowned upon in the black community, which is kinda weird because you don't hear about a lot of "down low" whites even though we whites have our fair share of rednecks and backwards-ass people

Gay and black, forget it? So, you're not saying that gay black men are catching it and then giving it to black women? Let's be honest, that is what's happening.

Downlown men are from a culture that's very religious and looks down upon gays. So, those gays pretend and have a 'hetero' life, while having a 'homo' life outside of their marriage, have unprotected sex, probably bottom, receive an STD, and then give it to their wife when they feel obligated to have sex with said wife.

That is what's happening.

Ummm..that was pretty much what I WAS trying to say in a nutshell. Why does that make me gross?

I don't think homosexuality is any less frowned upon in the conservative Asian, middle to upper class white, or even the religious Catholic Hispanic communities.

except it seems a whole lot of black people, Democrat or Republican, frown upon it. Whereas with whites it's mainly conservative, Republican, religious types.

yes it's a generalization but I'm not gonna survey every black person for their thoughts on the gays.

Asians and Hispanics across the board frowned upon it. Why don't we see tons of down low in these communities?

Ill tell you right now that being gay and black can bring problems. Being black and coming from a 100% black neighborhood I can tell you that its especially frowned upon in the black community,even though there are a lot of open gay people in black neighborhoods too, but they couldn't never hang out or anything with straight black males.

But its a lot of downlow black men because of jail mostly.
