Do Gays only care about themselves???

I'm sure everyone knows about Roseanne Barr's outburst of the gay community being only about themsleves. I mean i'm not only about gay-related issues. I talk about the mininium wage, healthcare, jobs, and poverty. Those issues are important to me. There are some who are about gay issues 24/7. So here is what rosanne said:

"Never once in my 54 years have I ever once heard a gay or lesbian person who's politically active say one thing about anything that was not about them. They don't care about minimum wage, they don't care about any other group other than their own self because you know, some people say being gay and lesbian is a totally narcissistic thing and sometimes I wonder...I've never heard any of them say anything except for 'accept me cause I'm gay."
-- Rosanne Barr, on KCAA radio in San Bernardino

She may have a point to a extent that is. I remember when the captain said that homosexuals only care about themselves. I never agree with him on just about everything, but maybe he finally starts to make sense? But to me that doesn't have a strong backup!

So Are rosanne and the captain on the mark about gays only caring about themselves?

To actually answer your question, pretty much, yes, at least white gay people. The reason why someone like Roseanne is able to sit and comment that gays only talk about gays is because the only visible gays are the white ones. As black gays, we don't have the luxury to sit around and pretend as if there are no other problems or issues that affect the world, or us, for that matter.

Nunya you are right on about how white gays can be. We black gays are more diverse on so many issues.
Thanks for that message!
