Why I’m Not Bothered About C**ning Black Gays Who Experience The Racism They Perpetuate

How you gone win when you ain’t right within?

That’s the response I have for black gay men who only date white men and get mad when it’s then reversed on them. Recently a black gay man shared his experience when he received some hurtful messages on Grindr (a Gay Dating app) during Pride. You already know what Pride this was 🙂

The screenshots have now gone viral, and everyone feels awful that he has experienced racism from a community of which he is a part of. The White Gays denounced it so you know it was real.

Everybody but me.

I don’t care, and I will never will. This ginger pube hair sniffing individual experienced a much-needed wake-up call.

Take a look at the screenshots first.

Now, one would think that he was experiencing what many of us black gay men have experienced when showing interest in a white man, but unlike this self-loathing coon, we don’t chase them.

Don’t trust any black gay who has “#TeamSwirl” in their bio and who also has a picture of an interracial couple that isn’t them posted as their header. Who does that? Self-loathing coons do. They do it all the time. Let me first say this, “I’m not opposed to interracial relationships if you truly love who you love.” This is a man who doesn’t. A man who doesn’t have a problem stating that he is only interested in dating white men until they call him a n*gger.

Let’s talk about preference for a quick second. You say preference, I say many use that as a disguise. You can try to disguise it as a preference, but it smells and tastes like unseasoned internalized racism to me.

When you’re bitten by a White Walker sometimes you turn into one yourself.

Teez is not the only black gay men who think like this. There are many others, and he’s just the example right now. If you don’t see people who look like you as attractive, what does that say about you? All of what’s being said could be written off as complaints that aren’t based on any receipts, but I have them.

“Black okay?”

When you go looking for something, you find it. So the cries of this coon experiencing racism are just what he needed. He needs to know that the many white men he’s only attracted to don’t see him as their equal and will never be interested in dating him no matter how many pride parades or Game of Thrones marathons he partakes in.

YOU’RE STILL BLACKITY BLACK!

Luckily there is a new app catered toward queer men of color that was created by queer men of color. Noir is close to being the best thing for gay men of color. An app for us by us.

 

Noir won’t save this poor soul though. Only education and therapy can help him at this point.

 

Do you have any black gay friends like this or friends who are black or brown that only date white men? Share this on your social media and call them out.

LGBTQ History Is Now A Part of Illinois Public School Curriculum

mm

Students that attend public schools in Illinois will learn of the contributions LGBTQ people have made in society. Signed into law on Friday by Governor J.B. Pritzker, the bill is scheduled to go into effect in July 2020.

Introduced as House Bill 246 by Representative Anna Moeller, the bill states the teaching of history will include a study of the roles and contributions of LGBTQ people in the history of this country and Illinois. The bill was heavily supported by Illinois’ largest queer civil rights advocacy group, Equality Illinois. Hoping the curriculum would bolster students’ self-image and make their peers more accepting, the bill received support in both the Senate and House earlier this year.

Illinois Senator Heather Steans said “One of the best ways to overcome intolerance is through education and exposure to different people and viewpoints.” She continued, “An inclusive curriculum will not only teach an accurate version of history, but also promote acceptance of the LGBTQ community.” Steans has been noted as “one of the General Assembly’s most vocal and passionate supporters of full equality for LGBT people.”

The bill details what changes can be expected to history curriculum for the state’s students. According to Equality Illinois, topics that will be added to public schools history curriculum include details like the nation’s first gay rights organization. The bill states all textbooks will include the roles and contributions of those protected b the state’s Human Rights Act, and must be non-discriminatory.

Expressing her hopes that the bill will benefit future generations, Steans said, “LGBTQ children and and teenagers will also be able to gain new role models who share life experiences with them.”

Would you like to see other states enforce similar bills?

We Support Black Queer Youth. Including Zion Wade.

Gabrielle Union Dwyane Wade Zion Wade

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union supported their son, Zion Wade, at Miami Pride and there’s something I need our community to understand — Until you value ALL Black lives, you don’t believe Black lives matter.

Growing up as the daughter of a Black man who stated he would disown me for my queerness, I celebrate the love and support Dwyane and Gabrielle shower Zion with. It’s one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen and something that should be afforded to everyone within the LGBTQIA+ community indiscriminately. However, several troglodytic, backwards people believe that rather than protection, Zion deserves correction.

At 11-years-old, Zion Wade has expressed ownership of his identity. I applaud him. When I was 11, I was a victim of the same ridiculous banter all children hear. “Look at you and [random heterosexual boy], y’all are so cute together. I can’t wait until y’all grow up!” The same people who push children into heterosexual relationships without question are currently asking “How old is Zion? Isn’t he too young for this? How does he even know he’s gay?” as if queerness ebbs and flows like the tide. As if his identity comes later in life like a Pokemon evolution. The level of homophobia in the Black community during a time when we are losing more children to suicide because of their queerness and our community’s refusal to accept them is baffling.

It is difficult enough in this country to survive as a Black person without the added stress of being shunned by your own community. So many queer people find themselves without unconditional love, which results in them fleeing hostile living conditions and facing homelessness. And we have the audacity to wonder why children like Jamel Myles die by suicide at the age of 9.

If you are unable or unwilling to show up for queer Black youth, you’re just going to have to square up in 2019.
