Poll: 55% of Blacks Say Gay Rights Not the Same as Civil Rights

By Melanie Hunter | March 28, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – A new poll commissioned by Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Bob Johnson and conducted by Zogby showed that 55 percent of African-American adults do not agree with the LGBT community’s claim that gay rights are the same as civil rights for blacks.

Does this mean that gay rights activists are racist? (That’s what these kind of polls usually mean.)

“There weren’t any real surprises. On the issue of gay rights, African-Americans are far more conservative on that issue than I think the general population, so that wasn’t a surprise,” Johnson, who is also founder and chairman of The RLJ Companies, said Tuesday at the National Press Club…

“We had another question that we … didn’t put in the speech: Did African-Americans believe that gay rights are the same as equal rights for African-Americans, and surprisingly they shared the view that gays can make the argument that their rights are tantamount to African-Americans, equal with civil rights,” [said] Johnson.

Johnson’s remark on gay rights contradicted the section of his own poll on equal rights for gays, which found that in fact, 55 percent of those surveyed said no when asked, “Do you believe that equal rights for gays are the same as equal rights for African Americans.” In contrast, 28 percent said yes. That’s almost two to one who said that equal rights for the gay community is no the same as equal rights for blacks…

This was such a politically incorrect outcome for a poll that even the man who commissioned it had to lie about it.

However, respondents were basically split on the issue of gay marriage.

When asked, “Do you believe marriage should be restricted to between a man and a woman or do you believe that persons of the same sex should be allowed to marry and receive similar benefits as heterosexual couples,” 42 percent said marriage should be between a man and woman, while 40 percent said same-sex couples should be allowed to marry with benefits…

It’s always confusing when you bring benefits into the equation. In fact, a civil union will provide most couples with the same benefits as marriage.

Meanwhile, we also have this from Mr. Johnson, again, via CNS News:

BET Founder: ‘This Country Would Never Tolerate White Unemployment at 14 or 15 Percent’

By Melanie Hunter | March 29, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Bob Johnson said Tuesday that the nation would “never tolerate white unemployment at 14 or 15 percent” and yet unemployment for the black community has been double that of white Americans for over 50 years.

“This country would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 and 15 percent. No one would ever stay in office at 14 or 15 percent unemployment in this nation, but we’ve had that double unemployment for over 50 years,” Johnson said while speaking at the National Press Club about the gap between whites and blacks in America…

Did Bob Johnson campaign against Obama’s re-election? If so, we didn’t hear anything about it.

Johnson said the challenge was to figure out why the unemployment rate for blacks has been so high, “and if that doesn’t change, somebody’s going to have to pay— 34 million African-Americans are not going to leave this country, millions of African-Americans who don’t have jobs.”

“Somebody’s going to have to pay for them. Somebody’s going to have to take care of them, and if somebody’s going to have to take care of them, that money’s got to come from somebody.

Is that a threat?

Anyway, aren’t we taking care of unemployed blacks already? With two years of unemployment benefits, and endless welfare and food stamps? Isn’t that a big part of the problem?

And whoever’s paying for it is going to be upset about it, and they’re going to start looking for somebody to blame,” Johnson said.

But look at whom blacks blame:

According to the poll Johnson commissioned, which was conducted by Zogby, 50 percent of African-Americans blame the “failure of the education system for minorities/African-Americans” for high unemployment among blacks, while 48 percent say the “lack of corporate commitment to hiring minorities/African-Americans” is to blame for unemployment in the black community.

Twenty-five percent of respondents blame the lack of government policies for the high rate of black unemployment. Eighteen percent don’t blame anyone or anything, and twelve percent aren’t sure

Nobody seems to blame Obama or the Democrats. Just ‘government policies.’

By the way, Mr. Johnson, could the state of ‘black entertainment’ have anything to do with why blacks can’t get hired? The ‘life lessons’ that are taught in rap music, for instance.

    Gay Rights do not equate to the Civil Rights movement

    You choose to be homosexual
    You do not choose to be black

    PS – the Constitution of the United States of America already covered the freedoms of black, white, pink and purple. “Civil Rights” were a scam to create a specialized voting class. All that had to be done during that period, as now, is Enforce The Law

      That’s right. The argument Republicans REFUSE to make is that behavior is a CHOICE. To say otherwise puts homosexuals in the same category as ANIMALS, who operate on INSTINCT.
      I am also attracted to CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, but I choose not to engage on my impulses because of the consequences involved. Those that do, sit in our prisons and also make the claim, “Hey, I can’t help who I am, i was born that way.”

      Despite the DISEASE RATE that far exceeds their overall population, gay people, even at the risk of DEATH, still cannot control their impulses, which will soon be recognized as a civil right, simply because,
      #1: They were able to control the argument.
      #2: Evil thrives because good people stand around and do nothing.
      (similar to AIDS, which tricks the body’s defenses not to identify it as a virus) ; )

      Look at the gay mob gathering at the Supreme Court these days, and their propaganda messages: http://www.buzzfeed.com/h2/shebe/mjs538/37-messages-to-young-people-who-dont-believe-in-marriage-equ

      There is a legit come-back for EACH AND EVERY one of these crazy messages. Republicans in Washington, collectively, couldn’t come up with one I don’t think.

      There is an easy compromise: Civil Unions for alternative marriages are OKed but unable to adopt children. Marriages are for traditional families and children. But just like Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell, words and compromises mean NOTHING.
