certain parts of the world are overpopulated like Japan but other places severally underpopulated. Therefore decreasing the number of humans in general isn't necessary, just spread people out more evenly.
Except most areas of the Earth are not suitable for human habitation. Humans cannot, or d not want to, live in many areas. Such areas include nearly all of Antarctica, the interiror of Australia, deserts such as the Sahara, and Gobi, and places like Iceland whose national populations is smaller than the Town Of Hempstead.

People do not, and have never wanted, to spread out evenly. No life form on the planet does that. All life forms occupy niches that are most favorable to their survival and comfort.

Although I feel discrimination against gays is similar to what blacks experienced, it's not completely the same. The NAACP was wrong to involve themselves with the matter in less it specifically impacted possibly black gay people. Since the organization core mission is the advancement of blacks, taking up other causes goes against really their core values and takes attention away from what they really should be soon. The current president also said something about fighting injustices against all races and groups but that incorrect nor is it what black Americans as a whole need. Groups like Jewish or Asians have their own representatives and organizations working for their individual advancement, why should blacks have to share theirs?
Black women and men, who also happen to be Gay, aren't merely a 'possibility', they are a reality. They have always been a part of your community and always will be. Some have even been at the forefront of the fight against racial discrimination. While the rights denied to and discriminations against Black Lesbian and Gays are not quite the same as those faced on the basis of race, they are an undeniable problem. This is a decision that was actually decades overdue. To leave behind the fight of some in their community for no other reason than their being gay and a 'majority' of their 'minority' has issues with that seems to be a pretty unconscionable breach of their core mission.
