UMass guard Derrick Gordon hopes his decision to become the first openly gay player in Division I men’s basketball will inspire others.

“There are a lot of kids out there in my situation, probably far worse situations,” he said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “Maybe I can give a lot of kids that confidence that they need to get over that hump.”

My theory: one of the most PRO-biblical marriage demographic groups in America is blacks. Especially black church goers.

Homosexual activists know this and have been working to divide this group and make it seem like being homosexual and black is “cool”.

Buggery requires a conscious decision and a physical act. The 'situation' is strictly of their own making.

Between little barry homo Soetoro and Margaret Sanger, the race is in danger of extinction! But they will keep voting for the democrips until they’re in the grave for a decade or two.
