I'm not the first person to draw the similarities between this, the first person i saw doing it was whoopi goldberg when she said on the view that it's a chain of events that is happening again. Black people were banned from marrying a white person, they were seen as different from society etc, yet, over-time, acceptance has come (although granted, racism is still a problem to this day, but it's not as bad as it once was). This is exactly how it is for gay people. We're told in many places around the world of how we cannot marry a person of the same sex, we are treated differently by society, we, as gay people, are still refferd to and joked about in derogatory way.
It's about time we stopped it, dont you think? It's 2014 ffs, where is democracy?
Having researched the links between black people fighting for equality and gay people fighting for equality, it strikes me a VERY odd that you would see black people trying to deny rights to gay people.
Robert Mugabe: ‘We don’t accept homosexuality, God made men and women so they can bear children’
Shouldn't this man, most of all, know that his actions and words are wrong? He's seen the fight, and literally, the fight, for black people to get to where they are today, where they're not treated as 2nd class citizens.... who the fuck is he to treat anybody like that? Sorry, but the man is a complete and utter joke and needs a slap back into reality.
President of Uganda signs Anti-Homosexuality Bill into law
Another man who's black, denying people basic human rights. In 2014.
The west has done what over this anti-homosexuality bill? Spoken out about it? Oh wow, let me stand and applaud these wonderful speeches that have as of yet, done fuck all.
Uganda WILL get equality, these things take time, but i know that people are working hard at making the change happen.
So, what is my final thing on this?
It's pathetic, it really is. We are in 2014 and not doing enough to stop the death's of so many. We carry on allowing gay people to be treated the way that they are and most don't bother to speak out for change to happen.
Even here in the UK, USA... these places where were supposed to have equality, we're still treated differently. I finish by showing you this speech, please watch it fully.
