As a black woman, I have a BIG problem with fellow black folks being so unwilling to understand issues that the LGBT community face.
My mother grew up during the Brown v. Board of Education era. She often tells me stories of the hatred and ignorance she faced. Hell, I’ve faced my own share of ignorance solely based on the color of my skin.
For a group of people who KNOW what discrimination feels like to not understand the struggle of those who can’t help who they are is beyond me. How the hell does someone justify that action without putting their ignorance on display.
NOBODY should tell you who to love, who you can marry, nor what you should do with your body.
