52. Look upthread
Edited on Thu Nov-06-08 08:09 AM by LostinVA
I was basically told this is okay because gays voted against affirmative action (wtf?), and I'm apparently kinda racist, because I think it should be discussed.

It's one reason why the Donnie McClurkin thing angered me so -- the GOP LOVES to try to woo socially conservative Blacks by waving the "Sinful Gay" specter. E. Lynn Harris wrote a great essay on this a few years ago in the "Advocate."
