I'm really dissappointed in Chuck and in Kenny: the "struggle" of being gay is NO WHERE close to what black people in America have had to deal with ( and STILL deal with today)

- gay people weren't dragged into this country to work as slaves and to be treated less than human
- gay people arnt disrespected every day in the media, brainwashed and trained to hate themselves
- gay people havnt been economically blocked & hindered in this country from getting ahead as entire communities
- gay people arnt systematically targeted by the police force to be locked up or k!lled
- (do we need to go on?)

I'm not going to pretend like gay people are immune to bad things, because there are still random idiots that pick on and harass them JUST because they are gay, but gay people have PLENTY of luxuries and support groups that black people do not have

STOP comparing the two

He's not comparing every aspect of the struggle, though, rather that black people were and are discriminated just as gays can be as well in our current world. It's the element of discrimination existing, not to what extent they have been discriminated against. He never compared the gay struggle with the black struggle. He said discrimination exists and we should look to empathise to those being subjected to it.

Hone in on the one point that Chuck makes that empathy should start with black people, because out of everyone in America, they've been subjected to most of the domestic travesties the country has experienced in the past two centuries.

you interpreted that wrong, he wasnt comparing the two, basically they said being black and knowing our history we should be the 1st people to be preaching tolerance and acceptance, strictly based on our past and history

Clearly you didn't comprehend what they were saying, but someone else already broek it down to you. & Yes, gay people are disrespected in the media and brainwashed to hate themselves and to be "normal". I'm sure there are cases of someone not getting a job because of there open orientation, just like there are cases of someone getting a high profile job despite being a person of color. They aren't systematically targetted by police, but they are by society and ridiculed. & I'm surprised that you said black people don't have support groups, are you a moron? We probably have the most support groups out of any ethnicity in the world, you can go to college for free just by being black. Stop being ignorant, if you're indifferent to the plight against homos3xuality then so be it, but if you're going to be a problem that continues to hold our society back then go back to africa. Everybody deserves equality and peace of mind.

Maybe I didn't comment on the majority of what they were saying: I literally agree with all of their points (especially "I didn't care who JC was sleeping with last night and I'm not going to care from
Now on") EXCEPT with acting like black people especially should sympathize with anti-gay-bashing

My own main point is just dont bring being black into this at all. Don't be tolerant just because you are black.. Be tolerant because its the human thing to do
