if you put blacks and gays into percentages, and in the same minority category, do you remember that there are gay black people? or are they not included in your 10 percent. then if this was a pie chart or something there would be an overlap or are black gays not important cuz they are already a minority?
sounds you are angry just because you want to be.

RR: YOU GET AN F IN READING COMPREHENSION

Richard, you are right. We need to do something. But who is there to rally around?

Also, the seeming ranter with poor grammar above me did have a slight point. Black GLBT people do make up a percentage of us, therefore, we cannot constitute a separate group from the black community as a whole. People are members of both.

I do wish that they had edited their comment though. I hate to see things like that.

RR COMMENTS: SPEAKING AS A JEW, I FEEL VERY WELL REPRESENTATED IN HOLLYWOOD MOVIES, BUT LIKE ANY MEMBER OF TWO OR MORE "MINORITIES" I WEAR DIFFERENT HATS.

Thanks for this post. I like your term "gapathy." I might take the concept a step further and coin "demapathy," and even "leftapathy."

Thank god/goddess/buddha/who/whatever for you.....i feel like a total minority within a minority for having the same thoughts.....keep up the fantastic work!

I give you an A+ in reading comprehension, and I'm one of only a few certified reading specialist in the State of Florida. Your insights and inferences are extraordinary, but you know that. jerry is just plain wrong. But a reminder: don't think all Catholics accept and subscribe to the hierarchy's "teachings" on homosexuality. Because we don't.

@ R: can't remember anymore what your post is talking about but if i get an F in reading, you get an F minus in spelling- 'representated' puhleezee
@anonymous who hated my poor grammer, at least i used my name.
@ed : what am I wrong about?
with this, maybe I should start my blog and talk about how difficult it is being black and gay. I am sure I would have a lot to 'rant' about.
i just resented your comparing gay rights to black people's rights like gays are just members of the white community and not rainbow colored like the rest of America.
do i still get an F?

RR COMMENTS: NO, NOT AN "F", YOU GET A "B" FOR BIGOT.
