Thank goodness this jerk doesn't represent the whole. I wonder he hasn't attacked Asians, Latinos, women and so many other groups for "hi-jacking" the civil rights movement.

How sad to be so arrogant and clueless that you believe you should be the sole recipient of rights. Perhaps he should join the KKK; his message now echoes theirs.

It's understandable that black Americans would be offended at having a characteristic like their skin color equated to an abnormality like the preference for engaging in homosexual perversion. And to add further insult, for the perverts to claim that they are more victimized because of their behavior preferences than those brought to America in chains against their will. Every right-thinking person of any race should be disgusted at the homosexuals using the history of the suffering of others for their own greed and selfish political gain.

The man has the absolute right to express his opinion, no matter how bigotted. Of course, he and his organization, may need to accept the consequences.

Perhaps he should listen to what Julian Bond has to say about it.
