How Alveda King Is Shaming the Legacy of Her Uncle Martin

Well that was pretty disgusting, seeing Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in Atlanta yesterday at the National Organization for Marriage’s tour stop.

Perhaps NOM’s most high-profile guest to date (where’s the Us Weekly crowd cheering for opposite marriage?!), Alveda stood before a still-slim audience and argued she wasn’t “ready to be extinct,” a phenomenon that would of course follow the legalization of same-sex marriage. “We don’t want genocide, we don’t want to destroy the sacred institution of marriage.” Alveda identifies with her lineage of “Christian soldiers,” not civil rights leaders.

But it was Alveda’s interview with Arisha Hatch from the Courage Campaign’s NOM Tour Tracker (embedded below) where she really stained the legacy of her name. As Alveda herself notes, she was the first person in the King family to get a divorce — obliterating the institution she now claims to so dearly defend. And yet her argument against marriage equality focuses on divorced couples, and single parents — rather than the loving families same-sex unions provide.

The best guard against extinction is marriage between one man and one woman raising those children. Statistics keep proving that when a male father and a female mother come together and they make a baby and raise the children, the children actually do better. They do better than families that are divorced, and I know that first hand. And so they do better when there’s a single parent, a mother or a father raising that baby, they just do. I’m really more concerned what’s going to be better for generations to come.

And as for the very court decisions her family’s work helped achieve? The ones that secured rights for blacks in America? Alveda says she doesn’t place her trust in the courts. Just in God. “The courts can’t help me. I have to go to the highest place.” OK! And would it be all right if the majority of whites had the chance to vote on black rights? It’s a question Alveda won’t answer, only to say that today, the majority of blacks would vote against same-sex marriage. As if that somehow excuses the idea of a majority voting on a minority’s civil rights.

Riddled with contradictions, Alveda’s logic — rooted, she says, in her uncle’s DNA — is so faulty that it’s not even her position on marriage that’s so offensive to the King legacy. It’s her grade school arguments.

      How ironic when MLK’s main advisor and mentor during his early activist years, Bayard Rustin, was openly homosexual. MLK clearly didn’t hate him so maybe it’s time Alveda research her family history.

      And there is the problem in the African-American community. A community wrongly based on being physically strong. Guns, power so on. Being gay is seemed as a MAJOR weakness so the black community hates it with a passion. Also the Conservative church’s in black communities don’t help.

      I don’t think she’s shaming anything. People know what a great man MLK was, and won’t forget it, no matter how much stupidity and hate she spews forth.

      Most people also realize she does not speak for MLK, just because she happens to be his niece: you pick your friends, you’re stuck with your family, and he did not elect to have this woman in his.

      MLK’s legacy is among the very few that cannot be belittled and sullied, no matter the idiocy of anyone who shares little more than a name and a few genes with him.

      How about those commenting who are trying to make this a race issues, take their heads out of their asses and wake up and look at the truth right in your faces. Homophobia is rampant not in with just African-Americans/Blacks, Caucasians, Hispanics, Asians etc…but in every community.

      @mojojojo
      Yet ANOTHER example of homophobia of the blacks?!?! What about how NOM is run majorly by individuals of the Caucasian community, or hell Fox News, which is primarily made up of Caucasian individuals, is the biggest example of homophobia, if I ever did see them. Now, I myself am not saying this community is to blame by any means, but it seriously goes both ways.

Your uncle who was a strong supporter of Gay rights was made extinct by those who chose to cast hate and hurt on he and the cause he so valintly fought for.

      I personally think the King women vent their anger against gays because their closet male cousin, Dexter, has control of the money. I know Dexter is married and has a daughter but his closeted reputation speaks for itself. And they can’t stand it.

      I have never understood why blacks embrace western religion while knowing absolutely NOTHING about their own religion, that being voo-doo. Voo-doo had good spirits and bad spirits and so forth but mention that to blacks and they are ready to tie you to the rolling stick over the fire. I just don’t understand them.

      @ewe: Not all black people are “stupid niggers”. Just the ones who hide behind their heretic faiths to attack people who supported removing the laws that suppressed them. They learned to hate gays the same place as white people: from their cults. With that in mind, Coretta Scott King was a self-proclaimed Christian, but she supported gay rights. Was she a “stupid nigger”? Was Bayard Rustin one?

      I am against “PC bullshit”, too, and refuse to ignore the elephant in the room regarding those who were oppressed turning around and oppressing others. I have condemned the homophobia of black churches. But I draw the line at the N-word, because it was created to attack ALL blacks (including gay ones) regardless of intelligence, education, class, and enlightenment.

My husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” On another occasion he said, “I have worked too long and hard against segregated public accommodations to end up segregating my moral concern.

      Plus, many Blacks voted Republican in the South because the ones opposing civil rights often were Dixiecrats, for whom Whites voted after Reconstruction because they were not Lincoln Republicans. When LBJ went with civil rights, a great many of those Whites went Republican, while Blacks switched to Democrats.

      So it wouldn’t be such a strech to think MLK could well have been Republican, at least until the ’60s.

      Everyone loves throwing out that Lincoln was a Republican (I’ve heard MLK was too up until the late 60’s) like it makes a fucking difference. The two parties switch ideologies over the years and no Republican back in the 19th century would be a Republican today. The Dems were the party of Southern supremacy until they started changing in the 1930’s under FDR. By the 1960’s it had all flipped completely and the Dems were the far more Liberal party and the racists flocked to the Republicans, WHERE THEY’VE REMAINED (an interesting little fact that the Queerty Republican brigade will never admit!) Anyway, if Lincoln were alive today, I’d like to think he’d spit on Sarah Palin’s face. I know MLK would, even if his niece is a thick-headed slut.

In fact, Coretta came out for gay marriage rights in 2004, after the Massachusetts decision, which was back when we didn’t have a hell of a lot of public supporters for gay marriage.

      @PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS: I didn’t see your Coretta quote. My bad. Let me add these two things, which she said in 1998 & 2004….

      “Gays and lesbians stood up for civil rights in Montgomery, Selma, in Albany, Ga. and St. Augustine, Fla., and many other campaigns of the Civil Rights Movement,” she said. “Many of these courageous men and women were fighting for my freedom at a time when they could find few voices for their own, and I salute their contributions.”
      -Coretta Scott King, 1998

      http://scienceblogs.com/dispatches/2006/02/coretta_scott_king_on_gay_righ.php

      “Gay and lesbian people have families, and their families should have legal protection, whether by marriage or civil union,” she said. “A constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages is a form of gay bashing and it would do nothing at all to protect traditional marriages.”

      @ewe: I wouldn’t loan sugar to a cracker like you. That word you think it’s okay to use a racial slur that applies to all black people. Period. And as for the “evolving linguistics” of the word, what’s Michael Richards doing these days? And no, I don’t support the double standard regarding its use amongst blacks.

      Here’s what you said:

      “When gay people spend their lives defending the rights of minorities such as african americans only to have a “select” group of african american religious filth oppressing us then it is perfectly legitimate to call them stupid niggers.”

      I call myself “Queer Supremacist” for the following reasons:
      —Homosexuality is superior to heterosexuality. This is manifested in the difference between our cultural contributions and theirs, not to mention the fact that we’re better looking, better dressed, and a lot more fun to be with (although I won’t be using this site as evidence for that).
      —Heterosexuals have suppressed homosexuality via means of genocide for millennia and continue to do so in many parts of the world.
      —They use the biological coincidence that man + woman = baby to argue that it makes them superior to us. You don’t even need to be heterosexual to make babies. You don’t even need a hetero sex act for that anymore, thanks to in-vitro fertilization.
      —Even so-called “allies” among them seem to treat us with condescension.

      When they surrender in their war against homosexuality, I will renounce my hatred of heterosexuality.

      However, there is no justification for racism. One’s race is what it is. It does not make you better or worse than anyone of a different race. Until any scientific evidence disproving that fact is discovered, racism has no moral, social, or scientific basis. And don’t give me the “it’s not racist if they deserve it” line. Even if they do deserve it, it’s still racist. Alveda King deserves every other piece of hate and vitriol then, but gay blacks and pro-gay blacks don’t deserve to be collateral damage. Homophobia among minorities is even more offensive because one would think their oppression would make them more sensitive to the oppression of others.

      As an example, I don’t like Barack Obama’s policies or his personality. I will never forgive him for pandering to homophobes to win the election, nor will I let my fellow gays live down their looking the other way because of the “D” next to his name. I will call him every name in the book except that one.

      You are a racist, plain and simple. No one will ever admit to being one, and they will swear on a stack of bibles that they aren’t (and I can’t wait for you, but that doesn’t make it so any more than claiming you are “straight” makes it so. And I don’t make arbitrary accusations of racism.

      CORRETTA SCOTT KING GIVES SUPPORT OF GAY MARRIAGE

      “Gay and lesbian people have families, and their families should have legal protection, whether by marriage or civil union,” she said. “A constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages is a form of gay bashing and it would do nothing at all to protect traditional marriages.”

      I was afraid to read the comments, figuring there would be some racist bullshit and sure enough, right on cue, there it is.

      This ONE woman is talking out of her ass, and smearing the legacy of MLK in the process. She clearly does not speak for all black people. I certainly trust Coretta Scott King’s opinion on Martin Luther King much more than someone who was a teenager when he died. But one idiot of color suddenly makes some people think racism is fine and dandy.

      Nobody blames all white people when Maggie Gallagher, Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh, et all, go off on gays. And they shouldn’t – those morons don’t speak for anyone but themselves. Just like Alveda. Racism is just as ugly as homophobia and guess what — some people are actually black AND gay! So no, black churchgoers and evangelicals are no more gay hating than their white counterparts.

Someone as whacked out as this woman should not have any power over how you feel about yourself. There are way more whacked out white folks spouting off – some of them have posted comments on the thread above – then black, and I haven’t heard one white gay person say that because of someone else’s actions they’re ashamed of their race. You’re always going to take it on the chin because of other people if you don’t work on that.

From what I can tell its not as much about stereotyping black people as homophobic, so much as its about pointing out that its a little extra ignorant to be a victim of bigotry and then exercise the same thing against a weaker minority yourself.

      @adam: Indeed it doesn’t matter – *all* I was saying is, before the parties switched stands, as noted by another commenter, it actually made some sense for Blacks to support the GOP, which was supporting them. And then, when the Dixiecrats lost out, the racist element did leave and the Dems became the most supportive choice.

      But as someone corrected me, the movement within the Dems had started with FDR, and troop integration was Truman’s, so by the end of the war, someone like MLK was indeed much more likely to be with the Dems.

      “The best guard against extinction”? What is this, Battlestar Galactica? What is with these anti-gay people? Why do they always think humanity’s on the verge of extinction? There’s 6.5 billion people on this planet. If we’re running a risk of extinction, it’s because there’s too damn many of us and we’re eating up too many resources. I don’t think it’s going to help anything to force the few gay people there are in the world to marry people of the opposite sex and pop out yet more babies.

      I would say that same-sex marriage is “the best guard against overpopulation,” but it’s not. There are very, very few gay people in the world, and legalizing same-sex marriage ain’t gonna create more of us. The whole argument is just dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.

      What they fear is the fact that most men are bisexual in orientation and are thus always potentially tempted by other men. This is the heart and soul of homophobia. Homophobia didn’t emerge because homophobes were afraid of some mincing twink. Rather, it emerged because homophobes – especially female homophobes – realized that men would turn to other men in the absence of legal and moral constraint.

      A lot of homophobia can thus be traced back to female jealousy of fluid male sexuality.

      Just to elaborate on my last post above, I do believe that female jealousy of male-male intimacy lies at the heart of a lot of homophobia. Women are jealous because male-male intimacy diverts attention away from their female egos. In order to counteract this, women have developed elaborate “rituals”, such as wearing make-up, revealing clothing, and claiming to be bisexual.

      At the heart of most women lies a skanky whore who is exceedingly jealous of male-male intimacy.

      That’s not to say that there aren’t legitimate concerns about de-stigmatizing male-male intimacy. If male-male intimacy was to be entirely de-stigmatized, there would result a promiscuity paradigm. The promiscuity cascade within the male-male paradigm is quite remarkable. I personally know of guys who have had sex with at least half the men in a crowded bar.

      The only true savior of gay and bisexual is morality. Morality and modesty is the only thing that will save us.

      @james_from_the_great_city_of_cambridge: James, alas your statement that the rest of the King Family supports gay rights and marriage-equality is not fully accurate. Bernice King, daughter, and currently president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the organization founded by MLK Jr. to organize the Rosa Parks bus strike, has also rebuffed gay civil rights. Other siblings have been pressing Bernice to turn from that position and support her mother’s very strong and eloquent stand for gay rights and marriage-equality.

As a gay man, why not focus on men, and leave the women who you so thoroughly assassinate with your smears of being whores and sluts alone to enjoy the romantic and sex lives of their choosing? Isn’t that what we in the gay community want? Just to be left alone to enjoy our lives and pursue our happiness?

      @jason: Sexuality is in and of itself fluid. It shifts and flows. Even gay men are sometimes attracted to women. Even gay men can sometimes form strong emotional bonds with women. In the same way, straight men can form strong emotional bonds and attraction to other men. Since men, in my opinion, are naturally more devious in their sex lives (as evidenced by a porn community that appeals to the extremes), it could be quite possible that they desire to be experimental. Studies have also shown that in the formative years, men are more likely to experiment with other men than women are to experiment with other women (which is often much more talked about).

      @Dawson: See what I mean Queerty? This is the kind of crap that you stir up. It’s bad news.
      The movement needs unity, not skin color and ethnic divisions.

      Homohating is a problem because the mormons, catholics and evangelicals and other cults push it and because politicians pander to it.

Come on, people who are involved with one another and come from different backgrounds, ethnicities, and race have these conversations with one another every day. It is called friendship and some of us call each other out on it.

      @ewe: Queerty has to be aware that there are large numbers of racists who post here. When someone like Alveda King is the subject of a post for being exceptionally obnoxious then Queerty should have standard disclaimers and point out that contributions by racists are not welcome and will not be tolerated. In my opinion that’s just something that Queerty owes to movement building.

      Race baiting has been coming out from under its rock since Obama got nominated and exploded when prop 8 passed and CNN published their lies about the role of African Americans in passing it. It’s a tool used by the right to divide our movement and as you can see it works.

      Listen to the heartfelt analysis of Devona Walker posted on AlterNet: “The next time the gay community starts pointing fingers in regards to black homophobia, I would suggest it take a more sobering look at racism within its own ranks. There is no group, regardless of who you sleep with or what skin color you have, that is either exempt or free of bigotry and bias. In fact, when I look honestly back at the Campaign Against Prop 8 and remember seeing all the yard signs in predominately white, affluent and trendier neighborhoods in Los Angeles from Santa Monica down to Silver Lake and saw no mobilization in communities of color whether Latino or black, no community building, no olive branches to the black church (which less face it has a huge population of gay folks within its ranks) I was a little offended. It felt a bit like we were being marginalized all over again.”

      @homosexist: Thanks. While I will partake of media made by hets and will take good het books/movies/plays/music/TV over bad gay equivalents any day of the week, I’ll be damned if I consider them my equal.

      @Ernst Rohm: If you’re going to attack me than stop with the fucking ellipses, distorting what I said (predictably you left out my condemnation of China’s human rights violations). But that’s too much to expect from a communist. You fucking monsters built your whole empire on one distortion after another, from that self-hating anti-semite Karl Marx to Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, Mugabe, Chavez, Ho Chi Minh, etc. And you left a trail of blood across history that would make Nazis and fascists (who have more in common with them than not) jealous. I can easily see you driving the tank that killed the protestors at Tiananmen Square, or as a guard at a Soviet gulag.

      You’re the real kapo. Commies are no friends of gays. Just ask Reinaldo Arenas, gay Cuban poet oppressed by Castro’s thugs, and subject of the movie Before Night Falls. Joe McCarthy was a homophobe, but the communists he condemned (real or imagined) were even worse than he was. Joseph Stalin made homosexuality a crime in the USSR in 1934, and those laws stayed on the books even after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

      To you, “racist” is just another meaningless word you use to shut up your enemies, along with “zionist” (which is no insult), “imperialist” (i.e. any Western nation willing to force to defend its citizens), etc. Did you not read my post above.

      Not only do I disapprove of heterosexuality but I also am against authoritarianism and totalitarianism. A commie is no better than a Nazi as far as I am concerned, and they use the same tactics that Christianity uses to sucker people into believing their lies. They claim to be “helping” the poor but are actually more interested in keeping them poor, uneducated, and dependent on them for their own personal gain.

      The gay rights struggle is a struggle for liberty and freedom, two things that are anathema to the likes of you.

      Until the black community starts realizing they don’t own creative license on all things civil rights…that they are NOT the only people in history to suffer or have suffered…and until they start caring about OTHER minority groups, other than their own…I think it IS absolutely fair game to call out the obvious and demand the change they saw to have a more equal place in this world. The African American community should be THE LAST group of people to practice ignorance and discrimination(especially based on faith, consider the irony!)…if a majority of them so choose to do, then a majority of others should call them on it. Unless there is dialogue, there will never be change. What some of you black LGBT request is to not even suggest there is homophobia in the black community; well guess what that does? NOTHING. Get uncomfortable. Then open your mouth and have dialogue. Otherwise, you’re part of the problem and not the solution.

      Homosexuality is not a sin according to the Bible. Scholars who have studied the Bible in context of the times and in relation to other passages have shown those passages (Leviticus, Corinthians, Romans, etc) have nothing to do with homosexuality. These passages often cherry-picked while ignoring the rest of the Bible. The sins theses passages are referring to are idolatry, prostitution, and rape, not homosexuality.

      Homosexuality is not a choice. Just like you don’t choose the color of your skin, you cannot choose whom you are sexually attracted to. If you can, sorry, but you are not heterosexual, you are bi-sexual. Virtually all major psychological and medical experts agree that sexual orientation is NOT a choice. Most gay people will tell you its not a choice. Common sense will tell you its not a choice. While science is relatively new to studying homosexuality, studies tend to indicate that its biological.

      There is overwhelming scientific evidence that homosexuality is not a choice. Sexual orientation is generally a biological trait that is determined pre-natally, although there is no one certain thing that explains all of the cases. “Nurture” may have some effect, but for the most part it is biological.

      And it should also be noted that:
      “It is worth noting that many medical and scientific organizations do believe it is impossible to change a person’s sexual orientation and this is displayed in a statement by American Academy of Pediatrics, American Counseling Association, American Association of School Administrators, American Federation of Teachers, American Psychiatric Association, American Psychological Association, American School Health Association, Interfaith Alliance Foundation, National Association of School Psychologists, National Association of Social Workers, and National Education Association.”

      The National Library of Medicine pubs confirm that sexual orientation is natural, biologically induced in the first trimester of pregnancy, morally neutral, immutable, neither contagious nor learned, bearing no relation to an individuals ability to form deep and lasting relationships, to parent children, to work or to contribute to society.

      From the American Psychological Association: homosexuality is normal; homosexual relationships are normal.

      The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Psychological Asociation and American Psychiatric Asociation have endorsed civil marriage for same-sex couples because marriage strengthens mental and physical health and longevity of couples, and provides greater legal and financial security for children, parents and seniors.

      America’s premier child/mental health associations endorse marriage equality.

      This was taken from another poster that shows why we need to legalize gay marriage. If you don’t feel for this person after reading it, you simply aren’t human.

      “I am not sure what our President thinks of this dicission but coming from a poor family and knowing what discrimination is all about I would assume he would not care if “Gays” have equal rights. The whole reason why they are asking for rights to be considered married is from the same reason why I would be for it. My own life partner commited suicide in our home with a gun to his heart. After a 28 year union I was deprived to even go his funeral. We had two plots next to each other. But because we did not have a marriage cirtificate “(Legal Document)” of our union his mother had him cremated and his ashes taken back to Missouri where we came from. That is only one example how painful it is. His suicide tramatized me so much and her disregard for my feelings only added to my heartach. That happened on March 21 of 2007 and I still cannot type this without crying for the trauma I have to endure each day. Oh did I mention I am in an electric wheelchair for life? Yes I am and it is very diffacult to find another mate when you are 58 and in a wheelchair. “

      How ironic when MLK’s main advisor and mentor during his early activist years, Bayard Rustin, was openly homosexual. MLK clearly didn’t hate him so maybe it’s time Alveda research her family history.

      Also,

      “I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people. But I hasten to remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream, to make room at the table of brotherhood and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people.”

      -Coretta Scott King

      I’m sure that someone who lived with him, knew him intimately, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, would know what MLK thinks over some “niece”

      no black racist amnesia/revisionist history/evil buybull bs will ever change that fact!!!

      King defended and befriended Bayard as long as his political strategy would allow. Rustin’s extremely humiliating and lewd public sexual escapade was fatally complicit in the belated severing of his political ties with King. The elated holy gaybashers who advised King finally slew Rustin, yet they did so with Rustin’s own knife. In spite of the revisionist libel you have penned, King, Coretta, and Rustin remain an eternal trilogy of social warriors and sacred friends. Again, as you shamelessly embraced only Obama’s political strategy, this specific analysis escaped you.

      Obama’s nominal and premature legacies are no match for an iota of King’s regal reign as a pacifist who fought for poor people. When King won the Nobel Peace Prize, it was a global honor. When war president Obama was selected to receive that same prize in 12 days, it was universally regarded as a global joke. King was a strategic clone of Mohandas Ghandi. Obama is a strategic clone of George W. Bush. Obama is an elitist. King was a champion of the poor. King frequently visited black enclaves. Obama avoids them religiously as he always evades all black racial arenas precisely as Dyson described.

Violence is almost unknown amongst gay men. Our contribution to beautifying the world through arts, music, fashion, literature, even science is incredible. Oh, and gentrification.So it’s understanable that QUEER SUPREMACIST and other have a disdain for the tyranny of heterosexuality. So do I. I love the allies and generally decent people, but I have yet to see straight men step up to the plate and fight homophobia. They almost always take a back seat.

      But it is fun to see how drunk they’d have to get before they let you fuck ‘em!

      Also, women are allowed to show affection to one another without being suspected of being lesbians. Perhaps women are more inclined to be tolerant. Compare Cindy McCain and Laura Bush’s views on gay marriage to their respective husbands.

      homohating blacks ignore racism and slavery in the buybull

      http://aliciabanks.vox.com/library/post/savage-sanctuaries—their-own-receive-them-not.html

      Here are a few excerpts from “Their Own Receive Them Not: African American Lesbians & Gays in Black Churches”:

      “There is a striking irony that African American Christians are so uncritical of Paul’s writing about homosexual activity but have maintained a critical attitude or simple rejection of Paul’s instructions on slavery.

      African American Christians, like other Christians, ‘treat so literally the references to homosexual practice in the Bible, while at the same time they interpret biblical texts on almost every other topic with considerable flexibility and non-literalness.’

      …what is perceived as natural does indeed change over time

      ‘love the sinner, hate the sin’. Many find this perspective illogical. They argue if same-sex attraction or expression is what makes the person gay, then what is being loved? With sexuality being an inextricable part of one’s being, the popular saying has as much success in reality as loving brown-eyed people while hating brown eyes.

      I regard sin as those behaviors that violate, destroy, and abuse our fellow human beings and our relationships with them. In this respect, homosexuality does not belong in the category of sin any more than heterosexuality does.

      Much of black heterosexuals’ antihomosexual sentiment exists as a means of countering the perception of black sexuality being perverse…

      …we know that lesbians and gays can and do reflect the same Christian moral character found in heterosexuals.

      …most gay men and lesbians were not raped and are not rapists.

      No reputable scientific study concludes that homosexuality is a choice and can be overcome.

      …black Christians will recognize that the mire of homosexuality debates threaten our measure to be faithful Christians for the poor, the infirm, the imprisoned, and those suffering from violence.”

      There were *at least* 37 posts on this thread by Jason and his sock-puppets on this thread, in case anyone didn’t notice.
      19 more are decent suspects to be his, as well.

      @Jason: your head is about to explode. Get some help.

      I figured I’d help you out some.

      Group that studies show were most directly responsible for passing Prop 8 = BLACK VOTERS

      Group most likely to disown their family members for being gay = BLACK PARENTS

      Group that invented the “down low” because they weren’t comfortable being themselves = BLACK MEN

      Gay rights should go beyond the issue of race.

      if you read the ” Prop 8 Report” by Dave Fleischer who wrote an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Time on 8/3/2010, the people who turned for Prop 8 at the end were people with children under the age of 18, and most of them being white democrats. do you have any citations for what you believe???

      @Bill Perdue: Way to turn the tables in a calculating way and make gay people the villians and blacks the victims in that Prop 8 episode. What I find offensive is the black community hijacking Prop 8 for their gain and benefit to take something that directly hurt us and in the most manipulative way, turn it into their battle cry for discrimination. No. Nice try. EPIC FAIL.

      statistically african americans are not to blame for the passage of Prop 8. see the link I have posted above and read. know we will return to the the latest white gay bashing discussion of ” black homophobia” that comes up on queerty I guess to keep its traffic up.go to it guys tell us black people how homophobic we are. and why is alicia banks posting on this blog is her traffic down?

      sorry I meant now.. but queerty is best when it bashes Obama or talks about “black homophobia.. I mean that is this blog’s gimmick right? they know white gays are going to bash Obama and boy white gay men love to tell the black community how homophobic they are and they love to tell the black community about their own history.. wonderful

      no black person, but ESPECIALLY no black gay person, should be defending hobama or daring to brag about NOT bashing hobama…

      hobama has betrayed poor blacks/gays more than any other groups in america!!!

      shame!!!

      i will not be silenced by racist black gay fools who refuse to deal with the reality of hobama and rabid black holy homohaters on ANY blog…why do liars and cowards dare to police blogs that do not belong to them???

      @ewe: Just a minor correction. “Dr. Alveda” is the daughter of MLK’s brother. He was also very active in the Civil Rights movement but vastly overshadowed.

      I am really very disgusted with this woman. She doesn’t actually have a degree that allows her to be called Dr (she has an honorary one) but yet she wants people to call her Dr King. No Alveda I will NOT call you Dr King! You don’t deserve the same title as a great man who was NOT opposed to homosexual rights. You can’t destroy his legacy, he was the best civil rights leader we ever had!

      Her support of the well known hate group NOM is something MLK would never have done. Homosexuals are treated like 2nd class citizens in this country and it’s very shameful how people treat them. Some organizations (look up NARTH) still regard homosexuality as a psychological disorder when it was removed from the DSM in the 70s.
