we're in houston frequently & live in a suburb of dallas. our lake house is about 1.5 hrs NE of houston and i have family in louisiana - so i've seen what you're talking about.
the areas are seriously economically depressed with very little employment possibilities. the school systems suffers because of the lack of tax money being brought in via the property values and businesses.
there's serious racism against blacks and latinos - sad, really.
i have to honestly say that when my family & i head back home to my small home town (about 1.5 hrs NE of dallas), there hasn't been the problems the past decade or so - maybe back in the 80s is the most recent of issues. my graduating class from HS seemed to have a large number of gays and lesbians - not sure why. but maybe that had an impact on the rest of the residents of my home town - many had relatives they knew personally that were homosexual & had to come to terms with it.
but those pockets, like the one i wrote of prior.....i don't get it. that town has access to news, media, employment, etc. i don't understand where that bigoted attitude comes from, much less when directed towards other races. in this day and age.
It all goes back to fear. Fear of change, of the different.

Have you ever been to Ellis Island in New York Harbor? They have examples of fear based news article in the early 20th Century. the quotes are straight out of Topix haters' scripts, danger of disease, danger of inclusion, drain on taxpayers, sexual attacks, and so on. This was about Irish and Russians and Jews, and just normal people coming to the new world for some peace of mind.

We all know the things said about African Americans who wanted to be treated as human beings in the 60's.

It never changes. The newly established pull up the ladder behind them, after they have grabbed a rung for themselves.

5.The Epidemic of Parasites in Gay Men
The incidence of gastrointestinal parasites rose exponentially in gay men during the two decades The transmission of parasites was associated with sexual activity that exposed partners to feces, particularly oral-anal sex or "rimming." By 2010, the prevalence of parasites was 60% or greater for homosexual men attending STD clinics or private practice.
.
6. Homosexuals make up less than 2% of the population .
"The rate of homosexual versus heterosexual child sexual abuse is staggering,"Homosexuals make up less than 2% of the population .
"Abel’s data of 150.2 boys abused per male homosexual offender finds no equal (yet) in heterosexual violations of 19.8 girls."
Authorities say evidence examined disproves the assertion that child molestation is more prevalent among heterosexuals.

Gay Sexual Practices Lead to Uptick in Disease

>
FECAL SEX About 80% of gays admit to licking and/or inserting their tongues into the anus of partners and thus ingesting medically significant amounts of feces. Those who eat or wallow in it are probably at even greater risk. In the diary study,5 70% of the gays had engaged in this activity--half regularly over 6 months. Result?--the "annual incidence of hepatitis A in...homosexual men was 22 percent, whereas no heterosexual men acquired hepatitis A." In 1992,26 it was noted that the proportion of gays engaging in oral/anal sex had not declined.

Gay Men and Shigellosis
What is Shigellosis?
Shigellosis is a disease that causes stomach cramps, fever, diarrhea and sometimes bloody diarrhea.
What causes Shigellosis?
Shigellosis is caused by the Shigella bacterium. Shigella is found in feces (shit).
Who gets it?
Anyone can get Shigellosis. Gay men get Shigellosis at higher rates than others. People with a weakened immune
system get more sick than others.
How do you get it?
You can get Shigellosis when feces comes in contact with your mouth. This can happen with oral/anal sex play. This
can happen when you use your fingers or hand for anal sex play and then touch your mouth. Even microscopic
amounts of feces that get into your mouth can cause Shigellosis.
How can I avoid Shigella?
Play safely. In addition to safe sex guidelines to prevent HIV, maintain good hygiene. Wash every
part of your body that is sexual with soap and water before, after and between sex play. Use condoms
or other kinds of barriers like dental dams, latex gloves or plastic wrap and be aware of
what body parts may have come into contact with feces during sex play. Wash them with soap
and water. Use condoms with sex toys, and discard the condoms after use.
What do I do if I think I have Shigellosis?
• If you think you have Shigellosis, see your doctor.
• Inform your partners.
• Wash your hands a lot.
• Don’t have sex until 7 days after symptoms end.
• Talk with a medical provider about what you can do to reduce your risk.

after i slowed my laughing, i can finally place my hands back on the keyboard and respond to your ridiculous accusations.
1. prove they're fake...keeping in mind that they're all registered organizations with large memberships.
2. prove they receive federal funding or even "donations" from "liberal politicians".
come on. just one piece of verifable provable and vetted fact from a reputable source - just one itsy bitsy tiny piece of fact somewhere from you.
you're really a loon that believes all sorts of theories about bad thigns happening don't you? LOL.
This will make you stop laughing...

Read and WEEP..btw, there's A LOT of articles on the web...Google it yourself next time..

As for the APA, an ostensibly scientific organization that functions as a left-liberal advocacy group (witness their new alliance with the American Federation of Teachers), it's almost comical that congressmen unwittingly fund the very organization they condemn.

Some background: In July 1998, the APA's Psychological Bulletin published an article that seemed to condone pedophilia. "A Meta-Analytic Examination of Assumed Properties of Child Sexual Abuse Using College Samples" argued that the "negative potential" of sexual abuse has "been overstated." Child sex abuse, they contended, actually encompasses a wide range of behavior best described with "value neutral" terms.

You might think that would raise eyebrows among the "scientific community." But the article went practically unnoticed until "Dr. Laura" Schlessinger attacked it on her nationally syndicated radio show March 22. The press took note. And soon Congress was turning up the screws on the APA, or so it seemed.

On May 12, House Majority Whip Tom DeLay of Texas and three other GOP congressman held a press conference to denounce the APA. Rep. Matt Salmon, Arizona Republican, lamented that "we have a so-called credible psychological organization in this country that purports to say that maybe sex with children isn't bad."

Unbeknownst to the congressmen , this "so-called credible psychological association" has long been in bed with the federal government. The APA has long enjoyed a small but steady flow of federal dollars. And last year, the APA was awarded $4.78 million in federal grants, most of them multiyear. Nor is this anything new. The National Institutes of Health, for example, have funded the APA since at least the late 1980s.

Yes, the government grants represent a small fraction of the APA's $77.63 million annual budget And it's true that some of the grants, such as $848,000 last year to train minority scientists, sound innocuous. But money is fungible. Money earmarked for seemingly legitimate purposes frees up funds to support pro-pedophilia articles.

In any event, shouldn't all these government ties makes the APA awfully scared to antagonize Congress? Apparently not. In the face of criticism over the pedophilia article, the APA simply hid behind science. A spokeswoman said "I think the issue is not so much about pedophilia but whether science should be allowed to ask tough questions."

simply "googling" it doesn't do the trick - since i don't know what vetted articles or studies you're referring to. that's what i'm looking for - not just your word for things.

and you're admitting that the APA is a real organziation at this point - great! then surely you know that it's the largest professional group of psychologists in the world. you still have yet to disprove those other organizations don't exist.

Homosexuals seem to not be tolerant of Heterosexuals opinions, I really think homosexuals want it their way or NO way, my observation tells me you are a bunch of liberal thinking close minded bigots toward heterosexuals. you have no tolerance to anyone's views but your own, you are the minority, less then 10% but you want 100% tolerance for your actions.

your own personal thoughts feelings and beliefs can be whatever you want them to be - they're your feelings, your choice. however, if you voice a negative opinion publically about someone or a group of people, expext and equal and opposite reaction. because, that's how a free society with free speech works - we all get to say what's in our hearts and minds, not just those that are "anti" anything thing that they don't like.

Freedom of speech is slowly being taken from the majority of citizens, try saying something factual that homosexuals, blacks, Hispanics, etc. do not like and you will be fired or ridiculed. Today if you are not pro-gay, pro-illegal alien you are considered a bigot, white heterosexual men are discrimated today, why do you think on a job application they want to know race and sex. You will soon have your gay marriage with benefits, politians are moving toward this to get your votes, what will you demand next, it will never end.

being ridiculed is a far cry from being prosecuted. if you're fired, that's on the company that fires you...then again, they may just be trying to preserve their bottom line in terms of income and cash and sales. the companies are exercising their right to preserve their client base. sort of like Chik-Filet if you recall. then again, if you are fired for making a public statement or for making the company appear different from it's image than it's intentions are...then you can take them to civil court & prove your case. good luck.

same sex marriage isn't about you or your feelings or beliefs, nor is it about my thoughts feelings or beliefs. it's about fairness and equality under the law. that's it. so far, in all court cases, every attorney hired to defend prop 8 or doma has failed to prove a state interest in maintaining those laws. since there's no state interest in preserving marriage laws as they stand, there's no legal reason to keep same sex couples from marrying - but you know all this. for me, once i can marry my partner of 23 + yrs, and protect our assets, protect our wishes at the end of life, preserve our family, provide insurance and survivor pension benefits, then i'll be happy because i'll be equally treated in the eyes of the law. i won't need to continue any political discussions...unless the numbskulls want to try to nullify the SCOTUS rulings or continue trying to prevent my ability to protect all that i've already listed.

Fairness and equality, why not have that on a application, no gender, no race, soon they will ask if you are gay or not because businesses will have hire to hire 2% or 10% so to avoid law suits.
