Gays show their true colors toward blacks over their support of Proposition 8.
I get sick and tired of radical gay groups trying to compare their quest to change the definition of marriage to that of the black" civil rights" struggle. Some gays think because blacks are a minority group that some how we share a common struggle. Most blacks that are registered to vote tend to vote Democrat. That is no secret of course, but blacks tend to be conservative on many social issues including defending traditional marriage. Gays in California foolishly thought that blacks were going to overwhelming vote against Prop 8 because Barack Obama was against it as well. They suffered a rude shock when Prop 8 passed and with 70% of blacks voting in support of it! So now gays in California aren't acting very "intolerant" towards blacks because of how they voted. It also shows how blacks and gays don't see eye to eye on this moral issue. It got so bad that black gays were called "niggers" by white gays, because other blacks voted in support of Prop 8, even though black gays were against Prop 8, so much for "unity under the rainbow flag".
"In fact, some African Americans voted for Proposition 8. Some didn’t. After Proposition 8 passed, Black gay men holding “No on Proposition 8″ signs were verbally assaulted by white gay anti-Prop 8 protesters at a rally in Westwood, California. Though the Black gay men had come to join the fight against Proposition 8, they were called “niggers,” and “their people” were blamed for its passage."
This what comedian Roseanne Barr wrote on her blog about blacks that supported Proposition 8
"They showed themselves every inch as bigoted and ignorant as their white christian right wing counterpartners who voted for mccain-palin and bush-cheney". Roseanne's World is out of this world for all the wrong reasons. Why it doesn't surprise me that when liberals don't get what they want, they have to use race in their arguments. The true bigots in all of this are people like Roseanne and gays that can't accept the will of the people. Prop 8 had absolutely nothing to do with denying gays "civil rights". They are mad, because it doesn't grant them "special rights". That is what militant gays can't stand. If they can't pimp the plight of blacks for their "special" purpose, they know they don't have a leg to stand on. Gay Marriage is an oxymoron by definition, because marriage is by definition a union between one man and one woman. Gay groups originally spouted that they want the same rights that married heterosexual couples have. Civil Unions accomplishes exactly what they want, but that isn't good enough. You see, the "having the same rights"defense was and is still a sham. The real agenda is to try to validate the lifestyle of homosexuality as normal by including it under the mainstream union of "marriage". Roseanne didn't factor in that they're are people of different races that aren't even religious that supporter the traditional definition of marriage. Gays have the right to marry people of the opposite sex just like everybody else, so they do have the "same rights" as all citizens do. Gays need to be honest with their intentions, because they aren't fooling anyone but themselves. Apparently they didn't fool 70% of blacks in California that supported prop 8. This paragraph from the San Francisco gates sums up perfectly why blacks voted for Prop 8 and why gay thought they were going to vote against it.
Proposition 8 was compared to legalized racial oppression. Surely, the opponents reasoned, if we are against oppression based on race, we have to be against oppression overall - and, using this argument, African American voters would have to vote against Proposition 8. However, many African Americans do not accept that a white man’s CHOOSING to live an openly gay lifestyle faces the same discrimination that a conservative, middle class churchgoing African American man might. One must factor the power of choice into the equation.
