The 14th Amendment guarantees equality for all. Blacks know that bigotry exists now in greater numbers than ever since the election of President Obama. Teabigots from the right are shamelessly shouting their rabid hate. We who remember the sixties know the long hard road to the Civil Rights Act. We had our leaders shot and killed, John, Martin, and Bobby.(Among many others). We will not go backward into bigotry and hate; we will move FORWARD into Love and Acceptance. Love your neighbor as yourself. Love IS All you Need!

"By any means necessary" is a phrase born of pure evil. Any one who utters such a phrase is so full of Satanic hatred that he is willing to spend forever in Hell just to bring his adversary down. Anyone who listens to and follows a person who makes that statement will make every step of that journey with him...

.......... Judge Roger Tawney , in the DREDD SCOTT CASE , misused the BIBLE by stating that SLAVES SHOULD BE SUBSERVIENT TO THEIR MASTERS .......... Just like 1898, in PLESSY v FERGUSON , the crooked lawyers in robes declared that the 14th Amendment was basically void , in the minds of zio- racists .......... now MITT ROMNEY says the BIBLE takes away our souls and gives it to corporations .......... CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE , Only people have souls .......... Lucifer Romney , Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor are corporate poodles.

Many do find some of his observations lofty and Harvardian. It would be interesting to see his reaction, though, on finding out that many influential gays are major contributors to the ongoing racial debate. For example, Wiki paints a most interesting portrait of John Maynard Keynes, he of modern economics, and his attitude towards Africans. Quite traditional, to be less confrontational. Two other contributors, one said to be gay, make the list. Cecil Rhodes spoke disparagingly of of "blacks." But the most surprising contributor is dark complexioned Ghandi. Despite his anti apartheid stance, Ghandi was not exactly a friend of his fellow dark complexioned, Africans.

While most, if not all, seek justice as the end goal of human endeavor, many feel that some prominent African Americans might do extensive homework before embarking on the pro gay bandwagon. As it stands there doesn't appear to be any reciprocal concerns on human rights as relates to African Americans coming from conservative gays. Please see Log Cabin Gay conservatives, for starters. And don't overlook some public conservative pronouncements made by that (in)famous Arizona sheriff recently outed.

In conclusion, then, if bigotry is a bad thing, one should easily be able to obey the command: let me not be bigoted. In that sense gays have a lot of work to do!

Barack Obama is a black man, who embraces and caters to his white lineage! Do you ever hear Barack Obama speaking about Affirmative Action, the Black Unemployment Rate or the constant killing of blacks at the hands of KKK Members who hide behind the badge and their guns! Obama is a coward when it comes to addressing all other issues, except African American Issues! Obama will never accomplish the things that Former President Bill Clinton did! Bill Clinton LOVED black people, and his actions showed that! Bill Clinton was comfortable around black people, and Obama tolerates the black people! A picture is worth a thousand words! Black people needed jobs, but Obama focused on Healthcare Reform for two and a half years after he got into office! I wish I would have voted for Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama! What if Barack Obama gets reelected for another 4 years and nothing gets any better??? Paul Ryan will be there to run 2016, and will probably win in a landslide! Obama won't care, because his term will be over!
