"People try to make it about black and white. He talked about equality for every man, every woman. We have a thing going on now - people discriminating against homosexuals in this country. I love the people. God bless the gay people. They are great people. We have discrimination against Hispanics in this country right now. We need to answer to that."

--Charles Barkley on his hero Martin Luther King

Yep, he was trying to expand and broaden his efforts when he was killed.

What a totally fucking awesome person!

Black support of Gay rights was common in the 60’s and 70’s. Our local (Sacramento) Gay activists find it distressing that this support has evaporated in recent years.
