Actually, the gay media pushes the hell out of you. If by "gay media" you mean Magazine covers and Gay Newspaper spreads, black men are all over them, and Latino men, and POZ men. Here in Dallas, black ass is all over the Gay Newspaper every week it comes out. You need to wake up. Racism in our community, I agree, exist, but all out denial of our existence, no. To the contrary, the media paints a very pretty picture. It's sometimes hard to see the bubbling Transgender controversy most weeks reading the gay newspaper. Bears always get a corner and some weeks the whole paper is bears. Matt, racism in this community is not as engrained as you think. As I see it, it's more of a fetish, where in, some sick puppies indulge. The gay community maybe doesn't admonish the fetish enough, but the GAY media does not push it or exasperate it.
