an outspoken supporter of marriage equality, from talking about gay rights is black. That was a big sentence; let me distill it, Burns is a BLACK man?! That's just insane to me. It seems like as a member of a minority class (black Americans) he would champion the efforts of a minority class (gay Americans). It wasn't that long ago when blacks were treated less-than, and in some corners of the U.S.A. they still are treated less-than white people.
It makes me angry that a black American would be anti-gay. ANGRY.
