Well here is the latest on the "fighting". I am not against aid for those who need it but I do think Cynthia McKinney grandstands wayyyyyy more than she cares about a a cause. Those who care about a cause don't chase the camera so people can see just how much they care.

 oh yeah  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

firstly, happy new year everyone.

secondly, you probably would have never heard about this ship had Cynthia McKinney not been on it.

thirdly, getting on a ship and risking your life deserves a better description than grandstanding. Grandstanding is when you get into a fight with Capital Police over a misunderstanding...wait. Either way, I think what McKinney did was brave.

nah...she tool.

irony?

Are you a McKinney fan?  I don't think I've ever really met one before.  How interesting!

lol. It's not about McKinney. I'm glad when anyone stands against oppression. Chris Rock could have been on this boat and the situation would still be unfunny.

Sigh.

I'm going to assume that's flame tL.

I'm so sincere.

That's why the gays supported Hillary in the primaries, because they knew Obama was a fraud.  They should've voted for McCain.  At least he was upfront with his homophobia.  Obama is on some slick *&^%.  *smh*

You really hate Obama, huh? Obama and Hilary have the same position on gay marriage. Neither was willing to take that ultimate step in saying "I support gay marriage." Moreover, Hillary is married to the guy who gave us DOMA and Don't Ask, Don't Tell. By your twisted reasoning, Hillary should divorce Bill and denounce herself since she once supported DOMA.

I wish you were better at this, dummy.

I would love to see more outrage as well.  I'd love to see allegedly benevolent, Godly houses of worship called out on their hate and their ignorance.  Let's start with the Mormon church, which for decades preached that racial discrimination was God's will, decided God's will was wrong when they were going to lose their tax status because of it, but now feel that God's will compels them to pump millions of dollars into secular social campaigns. 

I totally understand that, comparatively, the Warren situation isn't as big a deal as some other issues.  But, just sitting back and being OK with the decision makes it that much easier for people like Warren to perpetuate homophobia.  It makes it that much easier for idiots like naturallybeautiful to go on believing they're right, or justified, or informed.  If you sanction, overlook or choose to include - just to show you're open minded - even a little bit of that trash, you, by association, sanction an environment in which some people think it's OK to belittle, or fire, or bash someone for being gay. 

That's exactly my problem with this: morons not understanding Obama's intentions, reading it as something to be praised as part of their homophobic campaigns.  Sigh.     

You spoke so much truth in this thread, but it's falling on deaf ears.  You're talking to Black people.  They want to be the most persecuted, most oppressed; thus, they refuse to recognize the struggle of others or just downplay them.

coming from the gay black guy, stfu.   ::)

First off you are the idiot. And your last few post have been wayyy too Bushy..for me.  Look I am no Obama fan..frankly all politicans have pissed me off..but this particular move by him I actually like. If you are going to change the atmosphere in this country..to one of tolerance(NOT ACCEPTANCE) tolerance..then it starts by including and listening to the opinions of even those you do not always agree with.  If you feel so strongly about it then I suggest you gather yourself a bunch of boo-birds and on January 20th you and your fellow protestors make some signs..and when Warren begins to pray you boo and hiss and chant all you damn like. That way you make your voices heard about your disapproval of his choice.  Simple solution for a simple mind.

Natural I know you can defend yourself..but frankly I think the difference of opinions in our world are what keep us going.

I won't cosign on everything Saxby said, but I will say that I am well beyond the point were I regard people who believe that being gay is some sort of deficiency as simply having a difference of opinion. If you believe that women are inferior, you are a sexist. If you believe that certain races are inferior or superior, then you are a racist. If you believe that gay people are somehow inferior to heterosexuals, you are a homophobe. There is no amount of religion or opinion that can wash away the fact that you (no one in particular) are, in no uncertain terms, a bigot.

With that said, I still think that the fight is not with Obama. It is like Obama is doing what he politically can to actually ensure equal rights for gays, despite what you want to call it. However, if there isn't a grassroots movement willing to work to change the opinion on the ground, then we will forever be at a stalemate.
