Resident Hollywood liberal Sean Penn is angry at Blacks for overwhelmingly supporting Proposition 8. After all, according to the backwards logic of white liberals if anyone should understand the "plight" of gays it's us Blacks:
Last night's L.A. Times Gold Derby blog presented a video clip of a somber Sean Penn at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, where his portrayal of gay icon Harvey Milk had won the Best Actor Award. Penn did not look to be in the mood for a political discussion, but when asked by Tom O'Neil and Scott Feinberg about the passage of Proposition 8, the anti-gay marriage initiative, Penn didn't hold back.I'll be the first to admit that Sean Penn is a great actor, but besides his thespian skills he's proven to be nothing but a jerk. Gay people and their advocates on the Left can't argue for gay marriage on its own merit so they need to hijack the civil rights movement, a movement born from 400 years of cattle slavery, racist Jim Crow laws and a struggle to be treated as first-class citizens. Continuing to equate a deviant behavior with race is not only offensive, but condescending--so typical of white liberals who continue to use blacks for their deviant social culture. Funny too that Penn, who was raised by a Catholic mother and a Jewish father, hasn't mention his parents religious sects' role in Prop 8 getting passed.
"The Proposition 8 thing was a fiasco in California. Mormon movement should be ashamed of itself, the black constituency that supported Prop 8 should be ashamed of itself." Penn was less certain of whether or not a pre-election day release of Milk would have helped beat Prop 8.
