To all the members of the gay community who seem to feel that it is okay to appropriate our story for your needs, you do yourself a disservice. In the wake of the Prop 8 vote, all I have repeatedly heard about is the racism of the black community; totally erasing the gays and lesbians of colour, as well as your black straight allies. I hope that you watch this video and open your eyes.
If you continue to use racism to press your message this is what you stand to loose. You cannot call on people for support and alienate them on a daily basis. Respect begins by respecting the humanity of others.
