As a negro male, and a well-bred one at that, I would like to make a comment on the censorship of racial prejudice advertisements, if I may call it that.
It would be very stupid of me to try to mediate between homosexuals with prejudices (black and white) and a paper whose leaders are trying to be different and futuristic. We all have our prejudices or preferences, ie some of us like ‘chicken’, leather, whipping, fellatio or oralism. and so it goes on.
I am all for advertisements from people stating their needs, not their requirements, and even that may be contradictory, but nonetheless, I doubt whether it is racialistic. I would never specifically state that I need a negro male, because I am not like that, though in the end one has the final choice. A white man may need me, and I may need him, I might also need a negro, but in the end it comes down to the vital necessary things love, character, sincerity, honesty, things racialists do not look for or need it seems. Though I would say let them publish their filthy ads, it is up to the editor.
I am sure the reason why these people want to put ads of this sort in Gay News is to destroy it, like everything else. I am sure that the petty, irate letters wanting racial ads prove that most of the homosexuals in England are petty, prejudiced, destructive, narcissistic and unchangeable.
The reason one gets ads like ‘Young black, gay, then white guy wants to meet you’ (or words to that effect) shows that lots of gay men still believe in myths and beliefs. Myths that all black men have huge cocks to set their backsides on fire, and because they are so deep in myths, they do not want change.
They do not think of love, just a quick dig. I am a negro, and if I like someone, not because he is white, but from where I am, I am a homosexual and he is a male. But whether he is what I am looking for will depend, not on his colour, but whether he is the sort of person that I can say is honest, sincere, genuine, and most of all, reliable and dependable. Now if there is a negro that I like, then he would have to have the same attributes, and if he has, then who cares.
I like all the pink people, and I like all the negroes, and all the other people, but when it comes down to the racialists, not that I don’t like them, I can’t stand them.
I thought that homosexuals had changed, but most of us seem to be still in the past, of oppression, and persecution.
I am of the opinion that like so many gay papers, and magazines, that have come and gone, those people who keep harping on to have their racial ads in Gay News, all they want to do is to fill it with filth, and destroy it, and it is up to any clean-thinking, liberal-minded homosexuals to make sure they don’t and as an English negro, like hell they will!
