That's obviously because of the fact that non-blacks aren't threatened by them but they are threatened by a straight black man that's intelligent, knows who he really is and doesn't take shit from no one. A gay black man is a weak and neutered black man that's also a sissy and they know they can control him but not a straight black man, the biggest threat.

As it applies to this article. The test subjects (TS) were shown pictures of other people. The TS were not informed that some of the people being shown to them are gay. They simply picked people who were more pleasing to them. I am assuming that the gay BM presented a "softer" look about them, whatever you interpret that to mean.

Some people need to digest information using their logic and not their emotions.

There are more gay black men in the US, than any other race. Yet, you will not see sufficient data in numbers to prove it directly because they are usually on the DL due to the fact they do not wan't to risk being outcasted from their associations (gangs, clubs, etc). The hardest fact that supports this is that 50 pc of the new AIDS cases are from black men who have had sex with an infected man.

They spread more deadly diseases among themselves which makes them more likable.

I bet gay men in general would pass any likeability test. Gay men are simply fun.

Straight black men are not a threat. In fact straight black men are big white supremacy supporters.

just her (dumb) opinion.

I'm not gay and I have no problem making friends.
I doubt being gay makes a person better socially.
That's like saying being white makes a person smarter.

Think about the stuff we say y'all.

A more accurate statement would be that being black makes a person dumber.

Speaking of attitude and dog ugly.

I know you didn't say dog ugly.

But damn, you're ugly.

Whoever told you otherwise was just trying to slip it in you. It probably worked too didn't it?

...or it could be the picture, not your best shot. But probably not, right?

Gay Black men tend to have a calmer, more well-groomed physical appearance than straight Black men. Idk, they tend to have less tension in their face which probably translate well in pics. Generalizing...just my opinion.

I had a gay bm best friend but he moved to a place outside London.I've seen him on facebook but it's not the same.There is a gay white man in my workplace,he's nice and I talk to him but he's got his own clique of white female friends.Plus I'm biracial so I want my gay best friend to be biracial or black and he can be part of my clique.
*I don't really like using the word clique but if use a term from the UK people might not know what I'm talking about.
