Not in my opinion:
Discrimination is discrimination.
But, you don't agree with homosexuality, so I understand why you'd think that.
You don't understand. Discrimination is discrimination. And it is horrible.
But the differences in discrimination against black people and gay people is not an opinion: it's fact.
Pick up a book and read about how black people were treated and how they still are being treated.
Read up on the studies that have shown that little black children grow up feeling that they are not as precious as little white children.
Read about how black people in the Americas always seem to be a step or two behind almost everyone else.
Europeans blasted the faces off of statues and monuments that belonged to some of the most oldest and powerful human civilizations?
Why did they do that?
Did they freak out because they came across a swarm of man-eating mosquitos? Or did the broad noses and the full lips of these statues upset them?
Compare the histories of discrimination and abuse that both homosexuals and Africans have suffered.
Only then will you be able understand why I said that the two really don't compare.
