Who Is Ken Blackwell ? In my opinion he's a black man who is oblivious to the plight of African -Americans in this country and specifically the plight of black gay people. Blackwell who is currently the Secretary of State in Ohio is running for Governor and recently madeheadlines when he compared gay people to "arsonists and kleptomaniacs" !
This language is being used by someone who is running for public office and is supposed to be a voice for all of the people in his state. Is he not aware that there are gay people in Ohio who vote? Mr. Blackwell is convinced that homosexuality is a choice and can be changed contrary to mental health data that states the opposite.
What bothers me the most other than why I still can't understand why a black politician would ever run on a republican ticket, is why Blackwell and other African-Americans continue to create uneducated theories around sexual orientation and the gay community.
This is just another example of how low Republicans will stoop to energize their base, but I'm getting fed up of them doing so at the expense of gay people. I urge you to contact his office and leave comments on his website to let him know that his bigotry and homophobia will not be tolerated, much less elected into public office. Enough is enough!
