On Anti-Gay Sentiments (and Worse) in the Black Community
It was one thing when blacks voted overwhelmingly against gay-rights in states like California and North Carolina but when you now have people like CNN's Don Lemon saying that "being gay is about the worst thing that you can be in black culture", black activist and writer Kenyon Farrow referring to the "anti-gay violence that plagues the black community", and leftist gay advocate Dan Savage concluding that "I am done pretending that the handful of racist gay white men out there are a bigger problem for African-Americans, gay and straight, than the huge number of homophobic African-Americans are for gay Americans, whatever the color", that definitely takes it up a notch. Of course, if you want to witness all of the glorious details, I strongly suggest that you check out the black on gay violence chapter in Colin Flaherty's disturbing volume, "White Girl Bleed a Lot". He documents it exhaustively and even references Youtube videos.
