There is a clear line between appreciation and appropriation RECOMMENDED FOR YOU 'Act of War': North Korea Blasts Rogen Film, Fires Projectiles Dead Georgia Toddler's Father Searched Internet on Hot Car Deaths, Says Source Tortured by symptoms of PTSD, a vet killed by police was turned away by an overbooked VA h… by Taboola

I need some of you to cut it the hell out. Maybe, for some of you, it’s a presumed mutual appreciation for Beyoncé and weaves that has you thinking that I’m going to be amused by you approaching me in your best “Shanequa from around the way” voice. I don’t know. What I do know is that I don’t care how well you can quote Madea, who told you that your booty was getting bigger than hers, how cute you think it is to call yourself a strong black woman, who taught you to twerk, how funny you think it is to call yourself Quita or Keisha or for which black male you’ve been bottoming — you are not a black woman, and you do not get to claim either blackness or womanhood. It is not yours. It is not for you.

Summary: you may be gay, but you also are white. That trumps everything. So you are no different that any of the other evil white people in America who oppress, exploit and kill blacks.

I wonder if she thinks Gay Marriage is the modern, moral equivalent of the 1960s Civil Rights movement.

Time has gone fully into the sewer. It used to be a respectable family magazine when I was a kid, albeit a little left leaning.

What's sickening is that the author is a college grad and will likely be churning out crap like this professionally for the next 40 years.

Sierra Mannie is a rising senior majoring in Classics and English at the University of Mississippi.

Not bad for somebody whose native language clearly isn't English. I don't know what it is, exactly. This incoherent rant was apparently directed at gay white males, who have suffered but not, oh, my, never never NOT, suffered as poor Sierra has. Or as she is convinced that she has.

College seniors. What don't they know?

This article nails it. When I went to college, there were gay men who acted exactly like black women from the ghetto. I mean, right down to the finger-snapping and “Hell naw” voice.

Hopefully the oppressive white power structure at least has enough power to stop that from happening.

Black people can’t have anything. Any of these things include, but aren’t limited to: a general sense of physical safety, comfort with law enforcement, adequate funding and appreciation for black spaces like schools and neighborhoods, appropriate venues for our voices to be heard about criticism of issues without our race going on trial because of it, and solid voting rights (cc: Chris McDaniel).

???

What?

She’s got a point — it is pretty silly for gay guys to act that way. But I don’t think she speaks for all black people as far as problems. People I work with seem to feel safe here (not in Detroit, though, when they visit) and have not complained about the schools or getting hassled for driving while black.

Yes...back when the American public actually cared about actual news events. Time Magazine is merely catering to the public at large.

Don’t know what happened to my first reply. In any case, I indicated that the public at large is now, probably more in the, ‘useful idiot,’ category than outright commies. And that’s by design, courtesy of public schooling.

I had a dream not too long ago that gay white males started killing blacks in wholesale slaughter over certain neighborhoods. No one cared. No one! I was shocked to see the SS like efficiency of gay men feeling no guilt at all about “cleansing” their areas of criminals. They were laughing about it like a game and homos from Russia immigrated to join the fun and the body count went through the roof. Again, no one cared. Not in all the world. Not a soul cared.

She’s studying “Classics”. That 100% WHITE. Homer, Aristotle, Seneca, Plato, Socrates, Virgil - ALL WERE WHITE.

She’s not only stupid, she’s a hypocrite. If she’s offended that white gay men are acting like black women, then she should only be allowed to study “Afrocentric Studies”.

Hell, most of those things are caused by black people themselves. They don’t feel safe? I guarantee it’s not because of white people shooting up their neighborhood. Black schools and neighborhoods look like warzones? It’s not for lack of funding, it’s because black people destroyed them. Tired of hearing their race “put on trial”? Well, it’s their own race that commits the crimes for which others are trying to put them on trial.

The only thing she might be able to blame on whites is that police are harder on blacks than on whites, but when most of the crime is committed by blacks, that’s pretty much their own fault too.

Unless we happen across a gang of polar bear-hunting blacks that beats us to death in the street.

"screed"

I've been reading these kinds of screeds for fifty years. Certain blacks are upset that some white people imitate black music. Back in the old days, some blacks were upset that white musicians recorded music by black musicians.

For instance, a number of black musicians and afficianadoes were upset by whites who played jazz or blues. When the Beatles recorded a few songs by black musicians, some blacks accused the Beatles of "stealing" black music. As if The Beatles wouldn't have become famous if they hadn't recorded "Twist And Shout" by the Isley Brothers.

Some whites agreed and stated because of racism and slavery, whites should not play black music. Of course, whites were more than welcome to buy black music, and they didn't ask black musicians to stop playing white music....which many blacks did in those days. It was all hypocrisy and just as trivial and ultimately meaningless as this rant by this ignorant person.

It all comes down to the fact that a number of blacks are permanently angry. Nothing will make them happy. But they certainly don't mind enjoying the benefits of living in a country created by mostly white people as opposed to going back to the motherland and all its glories.
