LGBT Comparison of Marriage Redefinition to Historical Black Civil Rights Struggles Is Dishonest and Manufactured
Michigan, March 7, 2014- LGBT is an initialism which stands for lesbians, homosexual, bisexual and transgender. There is a false narrative being championed by this demographic, which says that those who are a part of the LGBT demographic in America suffer from the same plight that Black Americans did during slavery and the Jim Crow ere, prior to the passing of the landmark Civil Rights and Voting Rights Bills of 1964 and 1965, respective.
Gospel Activist, Sociopolitical Commentator, and Born Again Believer, Minister Stacy Swimp, disagrees.
“No one from the LGBT community has ever had fire hoses turned on them. They have never drank out of a LGBT water fountain or been forced to sit at the back of the bus in an LGBT section.“, says Stacy Swimp, of Michigan. “Lesbian, Homosexual, bisexual and transgender Americans have never been denied their voting rights, nor have they been denied the right to assemble. History also shows no record of the LGBT community being targeted by the FBI or CIA en masse; such as what Black Americans experienced.”
Black Americans had to stand up or step off the sidewalk whenever a White American walked by them. Has anyone from the LGBT community had to stand up or step off the sidewalk whenever a “straight” person walked by?
Have lesbian, homosexual, bisexual and transgender Americans been forced to eat in the back kitchen of a restaurant where they worked? Have they been forced to attend separate schools or been spit on acceptably in public?
Black Americans were publicly lynched, specifically excluded from moving into neighborhoods, prohibited from sitting on a jury and denied the right to sue others.
“The LGBT community has never been subject to eugenics campaigns (see Margaret Sanger’s history and its birth to Planned Parenthood), has never been excluded from attending a public university, has never been prohibited from living in a public dormitory; and on, and one, and on.“, concludes Stacy Swimp
To state that the legislative agenda of marriage redefinition is in any way similar to the Civil Rights movement is intellectually empty, dishonest and manufactured.
It also usurps and overshadows the utter misery that Black Americans have had to endure in this country.
It is time for Black Americans to address this false exploitation, by the LGBT community, of our legacy of struggle and overcoming.
