I'm convinced that all agendas in America ride on the back of the black struggle for civil rights. If you think about it, significant schemes have gained momentum behind the struggle of black Americans because, first, it's a legitimate agenda. Second, those seeking to use it to bolster their own agendas realize the power of sentiment and guilt surrounding the civil rights movement.

One legitimate agenda that has been fueled by the civil rights movement is the fight for life. Just as the emphasis of personhood was major in America, realizing that slavery was wrong, personhood is a primary issue in the fight for the unborn. As a black American, I am proud that those two are linked because there are factual comparisons between the two. We should embrace this.

However, black Americans should strongly reject and rebuke other agendas - specifically those linking the black struggle in America to sexual deviancy. Homosexual activists have successfully made comparisons between being black and being gay, and the black community, especially the Black Church, has allowed this narrative to exist and thrive. 

Why do you think President Obama didn't run on a platform promoting homosexual marriage in his initial bid for president? He's always been pro-homosexual marriage. But in the time leading up to the 2008 election, the Black Church still had a little sense; he calculated that he and his message would not be embraced at that time. He waited, “evolved” a little, then voilà - he knew that no matter what he ushered in, black leaders would not dare speak against the first black president.

The public affirmation of sexual deviancy from leaders like Georgia Congressman John Lewis (D) has been used as a tool to link what was fought for in the '60s for black Americans to a false movement that has successfully hijacked the legitimacy of the civil rights movement.

I would be remiss if I failed to acknowledge that the civil rights movement of the '50s and '60s had its flaws. With one of the main leaders being homosexual, an opening was left for this perverse linkage being made today. And Dr. King’s own indulgence in promiscuous acts also likely helped spiritually weaken the movement.

However, the fact still remains: the color of a person’s skin is immutable; sexual choices are not. The two will never be the same. We as black Americans should be ashamed of ourselves for continuing to allow the latter to be linked to the former.
