Was Kerry Washington’s Speech on Point?

I personally believe it was; people who have been wrongly ostracized by society shouldn’t be fighting among themselves  and voting against their own self-interest. Why are some of us so against it or sound like the Tea Party? Why did the people from Uganda let White Christians come to their country and tell them homosexuals was bad? Why did they listen and persecuted their own Ugandan people, because White Conservative Christians told them Gays deserved it? You guys should know when you are being used.

I don’t know whom I respect less; the Nigerian government, or people like this that appoint themselves as gatekeepers of traditional African culture and in so doing defend the obviously incompetent regime. How unenlightened to use the Judaeo-Christian-Islamic canon as proof of the unAfricanness of homosexuality when the historical truth is that homophobia was introduced to Africa through organized religion and Victorian values. Before then there is historical evidence that homosexual practice was accepted and even revered by tribes such as the Dogon, Bangala, Hausa (Yan Daudu), Nzema (Agyale) and others.

  1. I salute you for this. I think it’s sad to see people who have every reason to be working together trying to tear one another down. The elite love for us to continue our internal squabbles because it keeps the attention focused on them. I think one of the things I find most disappointing and frustrating among some of our “enlightened” brothers and sisters is this idea that somehow homosexuality is a weapon being used against the black community. They fail to realize their views on this issue only damage black gays, the very people who are their brothers and sisters.
