    We agree with her, too. If gay marriage had been put to a public vote up here, and (expectedly) the Muslim Indo-Canadian population turned out in droves to shoot it down (expectedly), it would make no sense to single out GAY Indo-Canadians to be the recipient of racial slurs or epithets.

    Especially when you realize that for them, the situation would be even worse, considering that the majority of their own demographic voted against them! If anything, you'd expect gays would be even kinder to their gay Muslim Indo-Canadian counterparts, as they'd be suddenly even more 'isolated' than they were previously.

    We've always had bigger hearts for our Asian, Indo-Canadian etc. gays here in Canada, because their families' cultures are often much more condemning and ostracizing of the gays amidst them.

    So to any that feel a little hostile about the black vote on prop 8 , try remember that those black gays have a harder slog ahead than the rest of us. Their own 'community' put them down, way down, and if anything, dashed the hopes of some black gays that may have planned on abandoning their DL behaviour and thought to come out among their families and friends...

    It just think its so hypocritical for it to still happen. And while we are still fighting for equal rights, some of us would still call blacks the N word. If we want to be treated like 1st class citizens, we need to treat each other like 1st class citizens. And this internal discrimination doesn't end with race, the gay community has all sorts of boundaries, how can we be a community with any Pride at all?
