I'll admit I am slightly skeptical about SSM, not because I am personally opposed to it, but as a college student I am constantly exposed to some of the most "culturally sensitive" (read: pretentious dip****s) the world has ever seen. I got told by a post-grad student professor last semester that I was being "cis-centric and transphobic" because I pointed out that sex is a dichotomy marked by the presence or absence of a Y chromosome. I cannot recall ever being so stupefied in my life.
So the solution the rpublicans have come up with for their really bad ideas is to find uncle ruckus and pretend it is because people are racist that they disagree with his stupid comments and prejudice? Republicons are aware that just because it comes out of the mouth of a black person doesn't make it true in the liberal mind, and that the very idea it should is overwhelmingly racist, right?
To the republicons, it is OK to dislike stupid ideas no matter who they come from, or what color they are. It is OK to be prejudiced against stupid. It is OK to brush aside stupid ideas, we do not have to put every idea in place just because we don't want to seem racist. Stop trying to use the fear of racism and the idea of tolerance to promote really fail ideas. But at least you are trying to make the 5 idiots in the democrat party who think every black person needs to be taken seriously or else you are a racist food for thought not seen since herman cain's presidential run. No really, he is a doctor so he must be right, despite the reality that republicons hate the liberal educated elite today for some reason. You cannot even stick to your own rhetoric.
Personally, it hurt me to see Ben Carson's views on homosexuality as I read his autobiography and the man is extremely intelligent, however, I disagree with him on his views about homosexuality.

Now I disagree with the pastor on his views regarding homosexuality, however I do agree that you cannot compare the cases of the black civil rights movement and the fight for SSM. They are completely and utterly different as black people were fighting for the most basic of rights, we were fighting for the right to be recognized as human beings.
I think that when it comes to party politics, neither party really cares about black people beyond being a voting block and really you could say that neither party cares about the country as look how the politicians have screwed us over while helping out their corporate donors and weakening the country as a whole.
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
And how do these fit into that dichotomy?
