A BET poll from April of this year:
WASHINGTON — A new survey of black Americans shows that most disagree with the claim that the effort to promote homosexual rights is comparable to the historic movement for racial equality.
About 55% of respondents to a Zogby Analytics survey said that equal rights for "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered" persons are not the same as equal rights for African-Americans. Only 28% agreed, while 17% said they are not sure.
The online survey of 1,002 adults used respondents recruited through partners or random telephone samples. It was commissioned by Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television, and was conducted Feb. 14-20.
The analysis — which claims a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2%

And after the Florida trial we found out there are white Hispanics, who knew?I'm just a poor brown immigrant that came here with no money or social support and became successful because of the opportunity this country gave me to work hard and do well.

Yep ol' Must, everything is a codeword. Thanks for making my point about your tired, boring and increasingly irrelevant rant. As one minority to another, I'm gonna' look under my bed right now for monsters...

I wish I could improve on KV's comments; instead I will just welcome back his humanity and point of view to these digital pages...

No geeber we have not learned that. Gosh, and this administration told us that burning the Koran and making a juvenile video about good 'ol Mohammad put Americans in harms way. I guess bombing a bunch of brown folks won't cause any hatred what so ever...

Lighten up on poor Herschel everyone; he's still stuck in the "racism by old white guys is the cause of all problems" mentality. Heck, he probably does not know that it's a youngish African American gone nuts in Washington this time instead. Or perhaps it's the foisting of the "President as Victim" mentality that poor Obama is not responsible for his own stupidity as he too is controlled by the military/industrial complex but in reality is a brilliant and able Statesmen. Again, we are soooo screwed...it is kinda' fun to hear people like Feinstein actually stating that while her constituents disagree with military intervention she knows so much that for our own protection she will probably vote for it. Which party are the patronizing bunch of boobs now?

MustComment-Pathetic and irrelevant post.
Of course racism exists; blacks have the highest rate of bigotry towards gays and Latino's of any racial group. I won't even mention the lovely, black community bias against Jews.
As a non-white I am beyond tired of the self imposed inferiority complex by folks like you. Much like the editorial itself your cliches are as tired as those that you rant about.
Here is a hint to all professional victims like yourself, get up tomorrow and put on your big boy/girl pants and try not blaming ANYONE else for anything. The following day, try and get up and actually TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your own success and lack-thereof. Repeat until you no longer suck oxygen on our shared planet.
