I am VERY excited to be able to write this on my blog and very excited that he was the first one in his position to do it. The Obama Administration is no stranger to making headlines and this is no different. Vice President Joe Biden and the Secretary of Education were quoted last week affirming the same ideals. This will definitely be one of the climax claimers in this years election. Currently, 30 states, with NC being the latest, have banned same sex marriage. Last year, NY was the 6th state to legalize same sex marriage.
Newsweek has depicted Obama as the first “Gay” president on a issue this week. Rep. Rand Paul was stated saying Obama “couldn’t be any gayer” after his public affirmation. I call this unadulterated ignorance. There is undoubtedly a crossover between Church and State. This issue is too large to let go to the wayside, but politicians need to find a way to separate it. Letting the two bump heads is like mixing business and pleasure. It just doesn’t work.
And then I end with this excerpt from a speech done by Huey Newton…
Women & Gays: Taken from a speech given by Huey Newton, founder of the Black Panthers, August 15, 1970
Strong movements have developed among women and among homosexuals seeking their liberation. There has been some uncertainty about how to relate to these movements.
Whatever your personal opinions and your insecurities about homosexuality and the various liberation movements among homosexuals and women (and I speak of the homosexuals and women as oppressed groups), we should try to unite with them in a revolutionary fashion. I say ” whatever your insecurities are” because as we very well know, sometimes our first instinct is to want to hit a homosexual in the mouth, and want a woman to be quiet. We want to hit a homosexual in the mouth because we are afraid that we might be homosexual; and we want to hit the women or shut her up because we are afraid that she might castrate us, or take the nuts that we might not have to start with.
We must gain security in ourselves and therefore have respect and feelings for all oppressed people. We must not use the racist attitude that the White racists use against our people because they are Black and poor. Many times the poorest White person is the most racist because he is afraid that he might lose something, or discover something that he does not have. So you’re some kind of a threat to him.
This kind of psychology is in operation when we view oppressed people and we are angry with them because of their particular kind of behavior, or their particular kind of deviation from the established norm.
And maybe I’m now injecting some of my prejudice by saying that “even a homosexual can be a revolutionary.”
Quite the contrary, maybe a homosexual could be the most
