@HillaryClinton #BlackLivesMatter Unfortunately, the race problem today was caused by Lincoln's lack of vision regarding the end of slavery. Though Lincoln argued that the founding fathers’ phrase “All men are created equal” applied to blacks and whites alike, this did not mean he thought they should have the same social and political rights. His views became clear during an 1858 series of debates with his opponent in the Illinois race for U.S. Senate, Stephen Douglas, who had accused him of supporting “negro equality.” In their fourth debate, at Charleston, Illinois, on September 18, 1858, Lincoln made his position clear. “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races,” he began, going on to say that he opposed blacks having the right to vote, to serve on juries, to hold office and to intermarry with whites. What he did believe was that, like all men, blacks had the right to improve their condition in society and to enjoy the fruits of their labor. In this way they were equal to white men, and for this reason slavery was inherently unjust.

@HuffPostGay N MY OPINION: #TonyAwards #Celebrities and the Political Process: #lgbt #GeorgeTakei #BernieSaunders #ArnoldSchwarzenegger #PersonalResponsibility #MarriageEquality
Competition for Tony Awards is extremely difficult this year. The cast of "American Psycho" was superb and it is said that "Hamilton" with multiple nominations. It is unfortunate that George Takei, an LA based actor, did not get a nomination but his belief that asians were left out on purpose or slighted by insensitivities is uncalled for. We both read the reviews and have seen him on stage before. He is not a great actor but he is a great personality. Unfortunately for George, the nominating committee probably believed that same. We knew George for years but found him to have no use in his life for debate. You either believe and accept what he says as gospel, otherwise he has no use for him. Now he is berates people who want to support Bernie Saunders.
IWe had a similar experience. Many years ago we asked the Democratic Party to put Gay Marriage on the agenda (circa 1995). We gave an interview to the LA Times and it was reported on. The Democratic Machine in LA actually blamed us for the Defense of Marriage Act (truly the Times played our recorded interview to a Mr Knight who wrote the first draft of DOMA). Many people worked to place marriage on the gay agenda and we were shunned for it.
We drifted as "Independents" because we believed in "Personal Responsibility" and wanted to get married. If we stayed "Democratic" and play as part of the WEHO/LA Gay Community gay rights movement, we would have to follow their agenda, not ours. We would have to fight the Gay agenda of housing and employment for not only g**s and le****ns but also bisexual and transgender rights.
Our elders, who would not speak out, let is know off the record that people will have "rights" issues because of the transgender issue for perhaps up to 30 years (from 1995) without any movement on marriage rights.
George was closeted then and we kept his secret. We set up George's first interview for his coming out process. After he became out his career took off and we drifted. No one was really pulling for Marriage Equality. That is, until the night we met Arnold Schwarzenegger. He promised to be on our side. The next day we became "Republicans" and fought for "marriage equality" with the Log Cabin Club. They promised to support our marriage push 100% and we became a "
face of marriage for them". George saw a photo and stopped being our friend. We were branded as traders to the lgbt cause. We helped Arnold transition his position to supporting marriage. It was documented by the Huffington Post. I tried to explain to George that our belief in person responsibility lead us to a political group that wanted "marriage rights" before job and employment for g**s and le****ns as well as bisexuals and transgenders. We, in turn, were viewed as selfish. But we had job and employment security in California and transgender people did too. We made a promise to each other that we would devote all of our time to marriage equality and decided that job and employment rights outside California would be an issue that we would not devote time and money too.
We became starting in 1995 and eleven years later became Republicans to work within the system and with terrific guys at LCR.
By 2008 George and Brad just had to be the first couple to be granted a marriage license in West Hollywood in 2008. We did get a marriage invitation and attended but really didn't talk to them. It was really a closure. George, in his opinion, thought of us as disappitments and faded away from our lives. That happens in life but his comments to us were demeaning and hurtful to us.
We believed in Log Cabin because they believed in our values of Personal Responsibility and Marriage Equality (alone with the fact that we never had to discussed the "choice" issue with them. LCR had our backs and introduced us to many people on the right willing to listen from personal meetings with John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Christie Todd Whitman, plus others. We played a part in starting the discussion.
Unfortunately in 2012 LCR went back on their word and endorsed Mitt Romney without even giving us the heads up. They even said we were no longer members but we had the cancelled checks to prove otherwise.
Now, some four years later, we still believe in personal responsibility. The community got our marriage rights for the entire nation however the gay community is still without nondiscrimination rights because transgender rights were included in LGBT. Now it seems as if the government is about to equate Transgender Rights with "Gender" protection, and g**s and le****ns are still out of luck with federal protections for jobs and employment. We fought in 1995 actually hoping that Congress would be dumb enough to pass an unconstitutional law with a presidential signature because a constitutional amendment would have probably occurred without it. You see, Amendments just need 2/3s of the states to support it and the Presidential Veto power would not apply. Discrimination could have been placed into the US Constitution.
That scenario is exactly what our elders told us might happen. It was the risk we always saw and tried to explain it to George but he was non-responsive. Now he is angry that Democrats support Bernie and he feels snubbed at not getting a Tony Award nomination. George cannot get his way all the time but when he doesn't and you are lower in social status, well you most likely no longer exist in his range of consciousness. Don't get us wrong, George has done a lot for the community, it is just that it is his way or now way.
As for us, it is now 2016 and we are no longer independents. Being a member of one of the two main political powers gives us a voice that being independent didn't give us. But what we registered is no one's business but our core values remain the same, "Personal Responsibility" and "Equality".
