Did the white man look at a black man as what the world calls immoral? You know what, I guess you can say so because they created the word "black" for our skin color. And they ran away from us with so much fear because of our skin color. Comparing the civil rights movement to gay rights is like comparing heaven and hell to homophobic people who are both black and white. To white people back in the day, comparing black people to them was the same reaction to that of a homophobic. They're totally 2 different things in their eyes. And to just black homophobics, "homosexuality is a sin, while black people are a creation of God and God does not create sin, he creates people."

The thing is, black people aren't handicap because they're black, and shame on anyone who makes fun of a disabled human being... In addition, gay people are a creation of God if their sexuality is genetic.

Unless God creates sin, blacks, disabled, gay people are his creation.

And I agree with Boykins. People should be treated equally no matter what they may be. That's what's legitimate.. and comparison may just help answer our questions, so it's not a bad thing to compare either.

They use to put black kids in Special Ed courses cause they automatically assumed they were disabled by race. They didn't assume black people was gay and put em in the back of the bus because of their sexuality but because of their skin color. Gay people on the other hand are looked at as trash and sin, people going to hell like black people were looked at the same way, except these white folks learned we'red just as equal to them.

The similarities in these two groups (gay and black) may be that one of them will always struggle more than the other in life for being themselves. And the black homosexual will suffer the most because black people seem to always be behind in resurrection.
