"Homosexuality is not destroying the African-American community, intolerance and hate is destroying the African-American community. Until the leaders of our community take a positive stance, we as a people will continue to sink to the weedy disarray of the bottom.
Until black folks become more informed, educated, and determined to embrace the humanity that 365 years of chattel slavery and Jim Crow segregation should have taught us-we are doomed to fail. Why today are black folks still patriarchal and religious even though just a short time ago folks used religion as an excuse to deprive us of equal rights? Religion is the most common justification for cruelty.
