How about before the next time the African-Americans and LGBTQs get caught up in another useless skirmish about comparisons, both communities pay attention to the fact that more often than not, they have the same enemies working and speaking against their rights. That way, we can do more vital things like call them out . . . or make fun of them.
Take Jesse Lee Peterson for example. He doesn't the queer community:
And thanks God for slavery:
Instead of arguing about comparing the African-American and queer civil rights movement, I would rather compare Peterson to Uncle Ruckus, a fictional character from the television series 'The Boondocks.'
After all, Uncle Ruckus has wacky views of the LGBTQ community:
And is also thankful for slavery:
Wouldn't that be more conducive to succeeding in our struggles for equality instead of another round of the "Oppression Olympics?"
At the very least, it's funny as hell.
