It's pretty crazy that in today's society, people can still be extremely ignorant and even homophobic. But unfortunately, that is the case, and nowadays it can be made even worse by the fire-spreading power of social media.

This mindset has gone unchallenged by the Black community for 2 long. https://t.co/TJxITQ2alJ
