I’m really disappointed with how the LGBT reacted in Indiana over a pizza business turning a gay couple away because the business wouldn’t cater a gay wedding?
I say so what?
So whats wrong with just going to another business?
I’m an African American woman.
That may mean little to you, however I need to address that racism is on the rise.
I’ve known alot of hate for as long as I’ve been alive on this Earth.
I’ve been “called “A black bitch”
A “fat bitch”
A Whore
I’ve had my life threatened with bodily harm. Can’t get much worse than having some hateful aberration of a person threaten to kill & stab you with their knife.
I’ve been called “Nigger” so many times, it seemed that it was my first name.
So I know about hate.
I also know about discrimination.
On jobs, I’ve lost employment, on a social level when I would meet other women when their friends would scowl at me the minute their friends meet me for the first time.
So I know a little bit about hate.
Why, would you blow such a thing as a business refusing to cater a gay wedding out of proportion?
Thats not hate.
Complain to the attorney general.
Not sending threats to the business, and protesting. What a waste of valuable time?
Did that solve anything?
Did you know that I have had to go through all of the hate that I mentioned all alone with not one person at my side to support me? Yes its true.
It’s why I write, its my only way to have a voice.
Also, LGBT what you must realize is that not everyone is going to jump on the LGBT loving bandwagon.
Much like the majority who don’t like African Americans, there are some that aren’t all too accepting as you should know by now. Just because LGBT has more rights, don’t expect that wherever you go you’ll be accepted because thats just not going to happen. One needs to look at the big picture.
Trust me I know what I’m talking about.
All this protesting is just counter productive.
But hey what do I know right?
Discrimination is NOT having a business refuse to cater a gay wedding.
Just simply go elsewhere.
It isn’t news worthy.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down. "The person who sang the National Anthem sang the last note so high that no could reach it! That was intentional!" Belize from Tony Kushners play Angels In America.
