I'm quite sure that you won't be profiled as a danger to the community by someone like a gun toting Zimmerman for walking while gay right off the bat. In that someone like Zimmerman will accuse you for being "up to no good" and about to commit some kind of crime just by looking at you, a gay man.

The issue here between you, gays and lesbians from young black males are quite different when it comes to profiling… and I can tell you for a fact that some of those young black males which are being profiled are, in fact, GAY! But their gayness is NOT the point of contention of those who are doing the profiling, their color is.

When people start thinking that you are an existential threat to persons or property by the mere fact of your gayness, that's when I think that you'd have a valid point here.

I know that it's bad enough having to deal with bigotry against gays and lesbians in this country, but this is a different issue.
