Skip to comments.Beaten for Being Gay in a Black Neighborhood
Posted on 09/19/2013 8:33:08 AM PDT by Anila
Being gay is about the worst thing you can be in black culture, said Don Lemon, a gay, black news anchor at CNN.
Sometimes you see can see the antipathy in hip hop videos. Other times at the ballot box. Still other times black hostility towards gay people is expressed in the dozens and dozens of hyper-violent episodes of black mob violence against gay people. Some on video.
These crimes are a perfect storm of silence: Predators do not want to get caught. Victims do not want to identify themselves as gay. And newspapers loathe reporting black mob violence.
Two recent cases within a week this month in Cleveland are representative.
Jared Fox is a Brooklyn teacher who returned earlier this month to his native Cleveland to visit family and friends and a gay bar called Cocktails Cleveland located in a black neighborhood.

I suppose it’s better than being beaten for being black in a gay neighborhood. then we’d have to deal with Al Sharpton
Here’s one variety of ‘hate’ you’ll never see the MSM wring their hands over.
I wonder how the media will cover such stories, if they cover them at all.
Here we see two officially recognized grievance groups, blacks and gays.
It’s not newsworthy if blacks attack whites. The media tend to ignore such stories, because whites are not an official grievance group.
But, if gays are attacked for hatred of gays, but are attacked by blacks, doesn’t that make a problem for the media template of hate crime stories????
Oh the hand wringing when one protected group attacks another protected group!
Then please explain why so many blacks walk around with their pants pulled down. It is to allow easier access for sodomy. Homosexual behavior is widely accepted in Africa. That is why AIDS is so prevalent.
Of course. Hence the near media blackout on these incidents. Poor Democrat pols can't be put into a spot where they favor one pet voting bloc over another, now, can they?
No, the style is “Riker’s Island” style. No belts are allowed in prison and pants size is one size fits all.
Too bad they helped elect the first GAY president then...
That has nothing to do with sodomy. I think black men, feeling oppressed by white male dominance in society, are more likely to want to actively prove their manhood to everyone, and a huge way of doing that is by being hateful towards gay people.
Plus there are so few marriageable AA men without taking more out of circulation, so it tends to be less of an issue with lesbian women. Interesting question to be sure.
Oh my! I don’t know which group to wring my hands over?
More seriously, most blacks are afraid to come out as gay...that's why, in black society...the "down low" has become the accepted lifestyle...the wife is the beard..and often doesn't know..
The explanation is simple: They are advertising their wares.
“Then please explain why so many blacks walk around with their pants pulled down. It is to allow easier access for sodomy.”
No, the style started in prisons, not because they wanted to advertise that they were gay, but because they take your belts away in prison so you can’t hang yourself. Thugs just kept wearing them that way when they got out, and then it got progressively worse as people exaggerated the style.
In the Liberal Useful Idiot Hierarchy, race trumps sexual orientation. So sorry gals or ummm guys, in the name of social justice, you are just going to have to accept the indulgences and indignities from those who are above you.
Try and emulate feminist icon Amanda Kijera and thank those who victimize you for the experience as they are just vetting their frustrations due to oppression they receive from the White man and George Bush.
However, if these black guys harass a pigeon or kill a snail darter or hurt any other animal then do let us know, then we will be really outraged because in the Liberal Useful Idiot Hierarchy, animals outrank you lowly Queers
Impossible....only whites can be bigots!!!!
The media either suppresses the details or works with politicans to quickly change the subject.
And sometimes they do both. There have been a spate of black on gay attacks in DC. One really bad one in particular a few months back on a gay couple walking home to Dupont Circle from Adams Morgan.
The press neglected to report on either the couple being gay or the attackers black. When the gay community in DC, which is very powerful politically, perked up on the matter Mayor Gray quickly held a news conference proclaiming his support for gay marriage. The attack quickly faded into obscurity ...
Tell that to our President, who loves all things black and deviant. I'm not sure about the order.
Yet the same people who are always are critical of everyone else for their “attitudes” racism
They themselves are the worst offenders. The PC crowd is up to its hairline in hypocrisy
My, my, liberal causes colliding yet again! Whomever shall the liberals side with? My guess is gay trumps black right now.
Black people in this area have more sense than whites. Don Lemon is exaggerating.
It comes from prison culture and the adoration of that by blacks through hip hop. Let’s be real ... blacks refuse to exercise discretion about where, when, how often or with whom they engage in sex. There’s even a phrase for gay or bisexual blacks who practice but aren’t out, they’re DL or “on the down low.” There’s plenty of black men seeking men, there’s just cultural hypocrisy and denial much like the black-on-black crime and devastating effects of their baby mamma/baby daddy culture. There’s no self-analysis going on in the black community, no desire to take on responsibility. They condition themselves to blame others through their media and self-affirmation of their own biases.
I would say you are correct. They know that blacks will always be chained to the oars of the S.S. Democrat, so liberals are currently focusing on gays, and Mexicans. The gays being the only group they truly wish to associate with.
Worse than turning in your neighborhood gang-banger de jour?
FWIW, Cleveland media is giving it A LOT of coverage. The bar is on Cleveland's west side, in an area near a "cut out" town that's always had some gay culture and been considered more trendy than Cleveland. That slice of Cleveland nearby has been diverse. The beat-down according to the news was by a gang of about twelve black teenagers. One was caught. The media are wondering why he wasn't jailed before this with all the crimes the kid has been involved in. It seems everyone was hoping the black gang problem would just go away on its own in that area.
Cleveland's trying to grow. Next year, the Gay Olympics are being hosted in Cleveland. The city is paranoid about anything that makes tourists uncomfortable in tourist-friendly sections of the city. A lot of the media exhibits the suburban attitude toward Cleveland. They publicize most of the stuff that affects people from outside the city.
The style was really created by Stringbean Akeman. Very funny guy.
What the multiculturalists have wrought.
Stay outta creepy-ass cracka hoods.
There's some logical disconnect going on here.
Hottie at 2 o’clock.
You and I would say that but Obunghole would not appreciate that she has the “wrong” equipment to satisfy him..
Homosexual behavior is widely accepted in Africa. That is why AIDS is so prevalent.
That’s because “conventional” STDs and open genital sores are common on men and women (even a badge of pride for men), and promiscuity/infidelity is common, and the virus gets emitted and absorbed via those sores.
I don’t know whether this fact advances any political agenda, but it happens to be true.
