everyone meet deray mckesson.
he is a black activist wolf.
his resume lists him as:
american civil rights activist
member of the “black lives matter” movement
he is an active crusader for black rights and justice.
the issue is…
well you may have already guessed it.
so a vix-bi sent me this foxmail today and i couldn’t help but wonder…
Last night Deray McKesson, BLM activist, was arrested at a protest in Baton Rouge. I’m reading on Twitter that a lot of people are bringing up his homosexuality. Also when he was arrested he periscoped the arrest and there were hundreds of racist and homophobic comments. One guy on Donald Trump’s staff tweeted and deleted that maybe the cops in Baton rouge could make him disappear. This reminded me of a discussion or debate in the foxhole about being a Black and gay man. Dealing with homophobia and racism, I didn’t want to comment because I don’t know what it is like to be black and gay.
Are you a Black man first or can you separate the two?
It seems that some guys like Black Pegasus refuse to put their race above their sexuality. It’s very interesting.
well after i read the foxmail,
i went sniffing around twitter to see what the word was.
i saw a lot of support for what deray was doing.
aside from the support,
i saw a lot of hate from the twitter racists.
i had to save this idiotic tweet to show the foxhole:
…and the kkk is a christian mingle’s group that wears 200 count sheets on their heads.
i didn’t see any blacks getting on his sexuality,
but as the vix-bi stated,
it was on periscope.
it is very disheartening to hear the alleged hate towards deray.
it would make some of us not want to stand on the front line.
from what i see,
he doesn’t wear his alleged sexuality on his sleeve.
he realizes he is black first before anything else.
the question is:
Are we really black first when we are also gay?
…or we just “faggots” who should have no voice in the matter?
besides a small few,
i don’t see many straight black wolves going hard as deray for the “us”.
you would think deray would get the most love.
he is doing a job many don’t want the responsibility of.
it’s sad that his sexuality is what is seen first than his intentions.
Should he stop?
he would be stupid if he did.
black lives are his passion.
just as the black icons and legends were told to “stop”,
or hated for their skin color,
deray will be hated for his complexion and sexuality.
it comes with the job.
no one said it would be easy or even fair.
as long as he as those by his side among the fight,
he should continue to do what he does.
deray will make history.
the others won’t.
just my thoughts on that issue.
