Is Gay Truly The New Black?
So much has been said to compare the fight for the equal rights of of those in the LGBTQ community to the Civil Rights Movement and struggle of Black people in America and the world abroad.
On one side you'll hear that the comparisons are valid and the parallels are real but on the other side many Blacks feel that to even make this comparison is a hard slap in the face.
You will here many Blacks who oppose this comparison say that their skin and ethnicity cannot be hidden in the same manner that Gays & Lesbians can hide their sexual preferences.
Black people are forced out of the closet with their Blackness at birth and will receive the racist treatment without any choice in the matter from the day that they were born.
Many Gays & Lesbians will point out what they feel are the parallel circumstances of their struggle and how eerily similar they and that their coming out of the closet is irreversible just like one's Blackness once the word is out about who they are.
This argument has been whispered by the masses for years and never dealt with head on.......
Is the current comparison of the Gay & Lesbian move to gain equality via the Civil Rights struggle merely the same tactic that White feminists used back in the early 1970's to simply use the support of Black feminists to reach their goals only to distance themselves from those same Black Sisters who fought so hard only to get snubbed in the end by their White counterparts who benefited?
How come there are so many Black people who are in the LGBTQ community that fight harder for their rights as Gay & Lesbian while ignoring the fight for equality as Blacks?
