    The African American community should be outraged by that. It is belittling of what they righteously fought for.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Gee, I wonder why the NAACP has come out in favour of same sex marriage if the African American community is so "outraged"

    First, I didn't say they are outraged, I said they should be. Second, the NAACP is a joke and hardly speaks for the whole black community.

    Why? Discrimination is discrimination no matter skin color, sexual orientation, religious choice, etc.

    why should they be outraged by anti-SSM looking ridiculous like those against interacial marriage? It's not the same thing, but the same outcome.

    My point is that people compare it to the civil rights movement, and it is nothing like the civil rights movement.

And during this institutionalization, they had to endure everything from castration to lobotomies. The fact that much of this has been lost to history and isn't being brought up in the fight for gay rights (because it really has little to do with the rights being fought for right now) doesn't change the fact that these things did happen.

    People are still losing their jobs for being gay, whereas not only has it been illegal for this to happen to people due to race for over 50 years now, but it is even illegal for a person to lose their job for the race of their spouse, but not the sex/gender of their spouse.

    There are still some people trying to get off of sex offender lists just for being gay.

    Well, that's not my point. My point is that the anti-SSM are going to look ridiculous in later years just like those against interracial marriages are today.

    They aren't the same thing, but there are similiarities. That's not making them out to be the same. Things can be different but have similiarites to them.
