    as a Repug. Repugs are always using race baiting and being faux-sensitive on race issues effecting black people. Unlike us in the people powered progressive community who would never stoop to such levels.

      I am part black. I've seen it in about every corner to some degree sadly. It takes different forms and guises. But then again, things are so much better than my family had it that is for sure.

        who are not 100% behind the idea of gay and lesbian rights that they are complete hypocrites for not supporting the same. I remind them that their ancestors had it almost as bad as gay and lesbian people have it today and they should be on board with fighting for the most important civil rights issue of our time, repeal of DADT and DOMA.

          I don't have mental/emotional capacity nor time to debate your logic right now. However I am in favor of homosexual rights and agree they should be afforded the same rights as heterosexuals. Suffice to say I think it is a stretch to compare the two as equal struggles- similar in some ways, but not the same.

          a hornets nest you want to poke without some serious thought.  I'm glad to see the DKos post Prop 8 Black vs. Gay battles die down and would personally rather they stay buried.  If you want to revisit the war, please just go back and search diaries in Nov/Dec. 2008 to read all about it.
