There is only one problem - while gays and Jews, I may add, were assisting civil rights leaders during 1960's, many of the same American-Africans leaders kicked them our of the civil rights movement. And even today, many of ex-freedom-fighters of 1960's are at the best silent when it comes to gay rights. Majority of both Blacks and Hispanic communities voted against gay initiatives in CA. A level of anti-Semitism among Americans of African decent and new Hispanics immigrants is close to 45%( http://www.adl.org/anti_semitism/2002/as_surv... ). While the report is almost 10 years old, I doubt things changed significantly. And if someone thinks that gays are loved more than Jews, than please think again.
Democratic party in its attempt to expand, united homophobes and gay rights activists, anti-Semites and Jews, ex-terrorists and military veterans..
Sooner or later this somewhere "hidden" conflict will show its ugly face.
