As one of the early members of the radical subversive group "Black and White Men Together", I have credentials on this matter.

YES,
There have always been nastily racist Queers, and
There have always been crazily homophobic African-Americans.

AND

There have always been fiercely anti-racist Queers (of all colors), and
There have always been intensely anti-homopobic African-Americans.

At the BWMT National Convention of 1984, Bayard Rustin (organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, Black, Queer, Brilliant) was our keynote speaker. You should have been there. He would have "Explained It All For You."

Guess What? Homophobia is declining rapidly within African Americans, and racism is declining rapidly within queerdom. We're all learning, and Bayard Rustin did not preach in vain.
