The above story is about "boycotts" "black listing" and other ways opponents of recently passed Prop 8 are now implementing to show their "Tolerance." Angry at a few Mormon Churches, businesess and calling black folk out of their names under their breath, Gays and Lesbians are now practicing "McCarthy-nism." Firing people who either supported Prop 8 or donated funds to the less financed Yes on Prop 8 campaign.

Boy that saying, "People who ask for tolerance are often the most intolerant," rings true for Gays and Lesbians.

To this date, not one protest has been staged in the black communities. So I'm thinking, maybe we, the black community should bring the protest to the gay community. Listen to their reported racial comments at blacks, who were there! to support them. And by the way, how can you say your plight is the same as the black civil rights movement, when you are still prejudice and bigoted towards blacks? I guess the advantage of being white and in the closet, works when you are calling a minority a derogatory racial slur. I guess, while in the closet, you're putting on the robe and hood that fits so well.

But maybe all black churches should "Get on the bus" and see if the gay community would be willing to say:

1. They were uneducated.

2. They were lied to by their preachers.

3. They're racists and more bigoted than Nazi Germany.

But I have a funny feeling, that if such an event were to happen....Gays would then see, their so called civil rights plight haven't scratched the surface, when they see LAPD or the Sheriff's office practicing racial profiling....
