DIALOGUE: Will Blacks Cause "Civil War" if Gays Have Equality Under the Law?

May 12, 2009

“All hell is going to break lose. We may have a civil war. The black community is just adamant against this.” — former DC Mayor Marion Barry, the sole member of the DC City Council to vote against DC recognition of all marriages performed out of state, including marriages of gay couples.
The other 12 members of the DC City Council (6 Black and 6 White) and DC’s African-American Mayor Adrian Fenty supported the legislation, as did Marion Barry before he revoked his initial support in a surprise move.  Barry was accompanied by Bishop Harry Jackson, a pro-Bush, anti-Obama Black minister of a Maryland congregation who often serves as a front man for white evangelical organizations.
Are Bishop Harry Jackson and former Mayor Barry right that blacks are more homophobic than whites?
That it’s the African-American community that stands uniquely in the way of gay civil rights and marriage equality?
I find these implications to be insulting, wrong, and borderline racist.
