Today the SCOTUS made history for WHITE liberals that have worked tireously to ensure that ALL people, regardless of race, can marry freely. The NATION rejoiced. I guess I haven’t joined in the festivities not because I don’t respect the efforts of my fellow advocates, but more because REGARDLESS if I am BLACK, WHITE, or LATINO, I will still be judge by the color of my skin FIRST before my sexuality. Needless to say…now that WHITE liberals have crossed this off their list, maybe they can relinquish some of that PRIVILEGE and begin working to eradicate racial injustice. Or maybe I’m just dreaming.
