Just at the moment black gay activist Keith Boykin was walking up to the
podium at this weekend's Millions More March in Washington, he was
told by the homophobic Reverend Willie Wilson that his invitation to speak had
been rescinded. This after eight months of discussion with march organizers
Farrakhan and Wilson. Farrakhan had seemed agreeable to letting Boykin speak
to the crowd about homophobia in the black community, but various accounts
say Wilson, who had previously blamed black America's problems on lesbianism,
simply went nuclear. When the time came to actually let Boykin speak, Wilson
personally turned him away from the stage.
...all of which probably gave republican party southern strategists a little
something to smile about over the weekend.
