MonicaR commented on the blog post Harry Jackson proves that exploiting gays and blacks is a lucrative business
The 1% is getting desperate. The POTUS still rises despite their daily attempts to demonize him.
Sending cookie-chomping sellouts like Harry Jackson out as surrogates won’t deter the African-American community from their mission of bumrushing the polls to give POTUS 44 four more years and kicking out every Republican legislator who tried to suppress our votes.

They still have two more days to show their white sheets to the public.
As Rev Jesse Jackson Sr once said, “I’m more concerned about the racists ts that wear Brooks Brothers suits and Gucci pumps than the ones who wear white sheets.”

Why am I not surprised about the hypocrisy of the religious Reich?
MonicaR commented on the blog post The amazing public turnaround of Bernice King on LGBT rights
I’m happy to see Rev. Bernice King moving from sounding like her Aunt Alveda to being more like her mother Coretta and her sister Yolanda, but it’s not time to do the happy dance yet.
I want to see actions by her on the rainbow community’s behalf organized with the same zeal she exhibited for that 2004 ATL anti-marriage march for a period of years before I drop the healthy skepticism about her evolution toward support of TBLG issues.
MonicaR commented on the blog post RuPaul Believes Trans People Should F***-Off If We Object To Being Called Tr***ies
We have told you as our rainbow community allies that the t-word is now considered by an increasing majority of the trans community to be a slur.
If you use it after we tell you it is a slur or try to come up with weak reasons to justify using it, then it stands to reason in our minds by you doing so you meant to be disrespectful toward our community and it’s going to piss transpeople off.
We thought we made it clear in 2009 to white gay media and the GL community that RuPaul is not a trans person. he is a self Identified gay male who made it clear he wasn’t trans and should not be regarded as an ‘expert’ on our lives.
GL people dismissively ignored that message we tried to tell you nicely in 2009, and the result is another community kerfluffle in which we had to point out in a language you GL people understand what RuPaul said was transphobic, it ain’t okay, and don’t do it any more.

MonicaR commented on the blog post NC: Republicans hold court at press conference touting anti-gay marriage amendment legislation
Saw this play run in 2004. Get the anti-gay marriage amendment on the ballot in order to get the homobigot voters heading to the polls.
Any bets that if it passes they set the referendum date for November 6, 2012?
