Homophobic Obama

superman.jpgIn just one example of Barack’s homophobic inclinations (oh there’s lots more to come), the below video from one of the democratic debates highlights Obama’s fear of somehow appearing to be gay simply because he had an HIV test. Personally that conclusion would never have come to mind, nor do I think it would have for many others, but Obama’s fear of his image being tainted by anything “gay” is just that strong.

As Ronald Johnson, deputy executive director of AIDS Action said, “Obama just needlessly played into some underlying homophobia in the black community. By saying he wanted to make it clear, he was saying, ‘I don’t want anybody to get the wrong idea.’ He was needlessly saying, in effect, ‘I’m not gay’ and getting a cheap laugh at the expense of gay men and black gay men.”
