Why do gay/lesbian people always seem to equate being gay with being black? It’s not the same. Yes, both groups have struggles, but the main difference is that gay people have a choice. Perhaps not about being gay (I can’t speak on that), but they can choose whom they disclose that information to. I have no choice. People know I’m black no matter what, and can start discriminating immediately. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think that there is any validity to treating gays and lesbians any different, but even though they have their own struggle, does that mean they understand my struggle as a member of the most despised race in the country?
