When he heard that gays couldn't marry here in Maine and most other parts of the country, he was not only surprised but PISSED OFF!

He is a young African American man in an overwhelmingly white state and he has never been called the n word, or any other slur, in school. Sometimes I think that his friends and classmates don't even notice that he and the other black kids in the school are even different.

The young fellow you're working with may have just taken a few too many trips to the back room of the video store (if there are any left in your area). Hopefully he'll learn. When I was 12 I was a chubby little sexist homophobe. My excuse is that where I lived, EVERYBODY was a sexist homophobe. It was 1967, you know. I certainly learned.

PEACE!
