The conversation on Homophobia is back with a BANG!
Actress Kerry Washington made an award acceptance speech at the GLAAD Media Awards Ceremony this past Saturday (March 21, 2015) that came as a shocker to many in the Black Community.
Here area few of her words which you will actually here on this audio offering:
“Women, poor people, people of color, people with disabilities, immigrants, gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, trans people, intersex people…have been pitted against each other and made to feel like there are limited seats at the table for those of us who fall into the category of other.”
Most wouldn’t have an issue with those words but that was merely the warm-up, this is where it got a bit more intense:
“So when black people today tell me that they don’t believe in gay marriage… So, the first thing that I say is, ‘Please don’t let anybody try to get you to vote against your own best interest by feeding you messages of hate.’ And then I say, ‘You know people used to stay that stuff about you and your love and if we let the government start to legislate love in our lifetime, who do you think is next?”
Okay! May I ask WHY is the Black Community being singled out by this puppet of a Sister to deliver this message?
From my point of view, this speech was ghost written by someone else or at least was given the green light of approval by someone higher to levy an engineered attack on the Black Community and their generally accepted stance looking down on Gay Marriage.
Are Black people the only individuals who feel this way?
It seems as though whenever there is a movement or agenda to be promoted, the Black struggle that we have to STILL go through everyday of our lives is expected to be tossed aside so that we can serve someone elses cause at the expense of our own.
Black Feminists back in the seventies were so “Gung-Ho” and enthusiastic in standing behind who they thought were their White Feminist Sisters only to be tossed aside like a snotty used tissue once their goals were attained flat leaving that Black Feminist on the spot to go home to her remaining issues in the Black Community that no one ever wanted to acknowledge in the first place.
You are STILL BLACK FIRST!
You can’t turn your Black skin on and off with a switch and go into the closet with your melanin like many in the LGBT community can with their same sex preferences.
My Black skin is obvious and undeniable but member of the LGBT community has the choice of “Coming Out” by stating it or acting in a manner that lets everyone know where they are coming from.
All I can say is STOP SCAPEGOATING BLACKS FOLKS for your causes while having no intention of ever returning the favor when we are in need!
And to those who ARE Black in the LGBT Community: Never forget how the world sees you and stop abandoning your undeniable Blackness thinking that you are seen as an LGBT community member ONLY as if your Blackness was now made invisible to the world.
When the police shoot you down unfairly its because of the skin you are in and not anything that you do in the bedroom or who you choose to love.
Listen in and leave your opinions and perspectives in the comment area below but the final question that I have is WHO was sitting in the shadows and holding the puppet strings while Kerry Washington executed a speech on someone elses behalf?
The Gay Agenda continues and half of us are fast asleep at the wheel…….
Peace, Righteous Love & Revolution Always,
