On 'Modern Day Niggers'

The killer quote from American Black: The Modern Day Nigger

As a Black man I find it even more repulsive. The same folks who are leading the charge to stop Gay marriage are the same conservatives who told my parents and grandparents to 'be patient'. Fortunately my people had the sense to say 'Fuck that shit' and attempt to grab equality and justice with both hands. Justice delayed is justice denied. And any Black person who is against Gays having the same rights as anyone else should be ashamed. In fact they should be forced to sit in the back of busses, be forced to call white folks 'sir' and 'mam' and generally be treated like second or third class citizens. They are sellouts not only to the Black folks who sacraficed for equality before them but to the human race in general.

I know some Black folk, even some Black gay ones, will jump on that statement and accuse Prince C. of startin' shit. Well...good! Shit needs to be started.

editor's note: Franklin is too much of a punk to leave a real email; say what you mean and mean what you say, but if you don't have the balls to leave a valid email address, buy your own damn domain and post bullshit on your own damm dime. And I also won't tolerate attacks on others. My email is on the site if you disagree or want to talk like an adult. Posted by: Franklin on March 14, 2004 01:15 AM
This quote is right on. How can black people approve of and join the fight to discriminate against another group of black people. Dat shyt don't make no fucking sense. Sometimes....sometimes it causes me to tremble Posted by: Tai on March 14, 2004 09:01 AM
It is amazing how this charge for equality will shape our lives in the days and years to come. Unfortunately, there are Blacks that would rather sweep the issue under the rug than to deal with it head on. Just we have approached AIDS and sexuality in our communities but I have a feeling this battle is going to be a lot different. Stay tuned!!! Posted by: James on March 14, 2004 11:10 AM
Tai: I agree 100%. And I'm not about the semantics of ISMs and comparison complaints. It's just so simple: discrimination/bigotry is wrong and must be erased. Posted by: ronn on March 14, 2004 11:10 AM
James: You're sooooo right. Most people who oppose the fight for superficial reasons seem not to realize (or care) that it's important to join this fight. If discrimination becomes the law against lesbians and gays wanting to marry, the extremists will be embolden and who knows what their next target(s) will be. And again, we have to do away with any and every discrimination. It's just as simple as that. Posted by: ronn on March 14, 2004 11:14 AM
