24. Most of DU's white GLBT people have "outed" themselves as stone cold, dead eyed racists

Edited on Sat Nov-08-08 12:40 PM by HamdenRice

Sorry to be so harsh, but that's what has happened. Voting to bring back slavery? Yeah, I've read that one. Another one posted something to the effect that "blacks are now my enemies" -- not California blacks who voted yes, but all blacks. The general thrust of the comments are that blacks are stupid, brain dead, hyper religions zombies being led around by homophobic bigot pastors -- even though no one knows exactly what was going through the voters minds when they voted as they did.

When white people begin making stuff up about black people out of thin air and stating it as unassailable fact, there is no other explanation.

All this because in one prop vote in one state, a higher than expected percentage of blacks voted -- not to "kill" GLBT people, not to "destroy" them, but to maintain a verbal distinction between marriage and civil unions.

If they were not a self identified "oppressed" group, they would have all been tombstoned by now, because their rhetoric frankly would embarrass FreeRepublic and the Ku Klux Klan. Seriously, as much cleverly worded racism as you see on FreeRepublic, do you think anyone there would get away with asking for a vote to bring back slavery or saying "blacks are my enemies"? No, they could not get away with it over there. But they can get away with it on DU.

I think a lot of people have repressed anger at Obama's election and are projecting that anger in other ways.
