Speaking in lockstep with his southern conservative constituency, Congressman Artur Davis says that the struggle for gay rights can’t be readily compared with the black struggle for civil rights. Davis is not the kind of political leader who somehow believes that gay is the new black, and his views are consistent with millions of African Americans, many of whom do not stand with President Obama and his support for gay marriage.
Davis spoke on the matter during a recent interview, saying things that will either make your squirm or cheer, depending on what side of the fence you’re on. KultureKritic.com tells more:
According to black democrat turned republican Artur Davis, you can’t compare Civil Rights with gay rights.
“When you say to African-Americans, ‘the gay struggle is the black struggle,’ they don’t buy it,” Davis explained to The Daily Caller.
Davis was an Alabama Democrot before he decided to move over to the other side of the aisle for better opportunities. He currently lives in Virginia and is planning to run for Congress there.
