I applaud Tracy’s apology for his homophobic rant in a recent comedy skit. I have long acknowledged my stiff opposition to all LGBT violent speech, discrimination, and physical assaults. I love Tracy Morgan’s comedy and will not stop watching him on my favorite TV show, “30 Rock” or a HBO’s comedy special. However, I also congratulate Tina Fey, whom did a wonderful job in condemning his routine and denouncing such garbage. Mr. Morgan used a total lack of judgment in light of recent young people committed suicide because of their sexual orientation.
Again, his skit was insensitive, hurtful, and dangerous to young ppl facing constant violence from homophobic individuals. Hate speech and violence against LBGT individuals cannot be tolerated: regardless of person/s or forum used for it; Homophobia language demonstrates a lack of education from its speaker.
This brings up an entry point concerning the Black community and its high moral stance against homosexuality. Nearly, 94% of African-Americans claim an affiliation with religion, specifically Christianity. Through research and general knowledge the Black community’s position toward the LBGT community is well-known and a point of emphasis in the Black church. NO GAYS ALLOWED!!! This consensus is laughable if it wasn’t so miserable.
The Black community, who screams for constant equality and social acceptance find themselves the most homophobic group in America. Who the hell cut off the lights?Despite chronic urban violence, high homicide rate, mass incarceration, massive illiteracy, high unemployment, and lingering health issues…(I would run out of strength in my fingers to continue our national forecast). Yet, homosexuality, we find defective and deserving of our wrath and must be condemned in all spaces. (again, who cut off the lights?)
I am not a religious person, nevertheless I sought its membership in the past on a few occasion. (Thankfully, I failed) Religion, like politics creates strange bedfellows. I have come to realize pious individuals find it assessable to manipulate their religious oath to suit their vices. In other words, it’s only a sin when others do it, surprisingly, the same (pious) person will shout to the mountain top about homosexuality. It is a facade, albeit, a clever transparent smoke screen,…
Just in….BREAKING NEWS!!!
Black people are members of the LGBT community and frankly, listening to my gay and lesbian friends more than one imagine. However, robotic mannequins preaching God’s wrath against the devil’s army believes theirs souls are different. BullS—T! Black Christians and non-Christians are more similar than opposites in my experiences. For instance, both groups lie, steal, cheat, commit adultery, and ask God for forgiveness, and on the other hand both accomplish good deeds. In fact, there exists no proof that a pious person will obey their religious mantra faithfully: Not even the fear of God will hold some back from their hidden vices. However, Homosexuality is not a vice, it is two humans sharing a relationship and hopefully a loving one.
In closing, Blacks lead the country in HIV/AIDS new infections, our young people are dying, yet we bury our heads in the proverbial sand called ‘religion.’ I do not know if Tracy Morgan is a religious individual, this is not about his faith, but about Black America’s hypocrisy. I did not have to forgive Tracy, we say dump things at times, I am one who does it more more than once. Nevertheless, Blacks need to clean up the religious rhetoric concerning homosexuality, you’re not fooling anyone. Cut the lights back on, please, I beg God.
