Newark has one of the highest crime rates, PARTICULARLY HOMICIDE, in the entire US. Why doesn't Booker do something about that ?!

Are you just ocmpletely incable of staying on topic?

My opinion is the inclusion of marriage equality in the Democratic platform will have a significant impact on the election, but more at the local level than in the Presidential race. It's not like a whole lot of anit-gay bigots were going to vote for Obama anyways.

I think that some people will be turned off of Obama because of this. People of color who are religious (of any type) may well come to believe that their souls are more important than their skin color. While they may not vote for Romney, I think it is very likely they won't vote at all rather than vote for the party and candidates of "gay marriage."

Black people are the most homophobic in the US.

If there's one thing we can count on it's that black people are even MORE racist than they are homophobic. So while they may not agree with gays getting married, they'll still turn out in droves to keep the 1st black president from being replaced by a white mormon.

Bank on it!

Thankfully their racism will override their homophobia and force them to turn out to vote for Obama. They realize a few gays getting married won't really affect them, but that a white mormon in the White House would be DISASTROUS for them. Obama & the Dems will make that point abundantly clear over the next 79 days.

I expect black turnout to actually exceed the level of '08.

The Mormon religion actually has passages that state how a black person can't enter Heaven unless he or she is a slave. Even in Heaven, their freedom is non-existent. No way in hell will black people let that guy have a chance at entering the white house, even if he doesn't seem that religious.

Black people aren't going to vote against Obama, not one.
Black people care about the color of peoples' skin, not the content of their character.

The only religious practice allowed in The White House is of the Hebrews. Still no one needs religion to know homosexual acts are wrong. It is a normal reaction for any person to find two men or women kissing to be disturbing let alone disgusting.
THAT! Is normal.

Maybe you should have a talk with the Rev William Owens.
You sold your soul to zionism whether you realize it or not.
Explain that one!

Rev. Owens said at the National Press Club:“The President is in the White House because of the civil rights movement, and I was a leader in that movement, and I didn’t march one inch, one foot, one yard for a man to marry a man or a woman to marry a woman.”

At the national level, I agree. Inclusion of the plank will energize some supporters, and won't have much effect on other supporters. Among independents--that is, moderates--marriage is quite low on the list of concerns. The real question is how many people will now think Obama is the devil they must fight with all their might. And my impression is that they already think that. So it's a small net plus nationally.

So my guess is that, overall, you think local Republicans will be emboldened to make the race a GLBT issue. I think this is mitigated--particularly in minority communities--by Obama finally giving moderates cover to state their opposition to the anti-gay orthodoxy. I'm not convinced by the rosy polls in the black community that followed Obama's announcement, but I do believe there's now at least a debate where there never was one.

Long term, this is a plus. Short term, I don't think the damage is overwhelming..

Seeing the unabashed idiocy within this comment, I should have simply ignored it and hoped you went about getting back on your medication, but meh. LOL.

False. Homosexual acts are neutral. You might as well say eating a salad is wrong.

A lot of people find a lot of things disturbing. Doesn't mean people should be robbed of their rights because of such a feeling. I personally find your stupidity disturbing, but it's not like I am 100% given the green light to do the right thing in my mind, and give your ballsack the speedbag treatment so you don't breed or breed further. Also, it's not like gay people get out their day planners, and devote hours of their day blowing loads into your cereal or some sh*t. They just want to live the way that they want to live, without r-tards getting in the way.

If it weren't for Bayard Rustin, a gay man, there would have been no Martin Luther Kig Jr. as we know him, no big marches on Washington, and no Civil Rights Movement for blacks. Also, Owens is a tool. He looks like a Black Cahrlie Chaplan.

Why Rustin was a bada**



Why Owens is just an a**

Really, is that why men get turned on by woman on woman porn?

Just admit it.....people aren't crazy about Gay men because of what they themselves don't like......but if that bothers you, then simply STOP thinking about it!!!

I disagree. As one of the most vocally homophobic demographics in teh US, I think that hi support amongst black people will drop. Have you seeen the rabid anti-gay black preachers spewing their hatred ?

And what exactly has The Obamaniac actually DONE for black people ?(Except increase their unemployment rate)?

I saw a video the other day of black people celebrating in 2008 when he was elected. One black woman interviewed said she was so happy he was elected, because he was now going to pay ALL her bills for her and she wouldn't have to pay rent anymore. What percentage of black people are this stupid ???

So you're argument is that black people determine the outcome of POTUS elections ?

I don't think so.
