EtcetEraThread Pete Buttigieg says being gay helps him relate to the struggles that black people face in America, statement has angered some black people
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): Whataboutism and inflammatory comments surrounding race
Not a good thing to say even if it's meant with good intentions. Everybody thinks their plight is worse than others after all.I've never understood why gay white people get attacked and singled out by the black community/people in general, but the LGBTQ community doesn't do the same for the straight black community?? (I mean I'm glad we don't, it's gross and messy). He's saying this as a gay man not a white man, you don't get to throw all of us gay white men in the same field as general 'white' people and then not call out homophobia within the black community (which pretty much hardly ever gets mentioned). The hypocrisy winds me up and rears its head around here too much ....
