It’s nice to see young people standing up for the planet. Somebody has to do it and who better than the young and inspired? Many of us are over the hill and figure we will be gone before the planet explodes and we get complacent and lazy. Kudos to the young folks for picking up the baton.

Surprise in the South

Very surprised to read that the majority of Black same-sex couples live in the South. From the narratives that are often painted, the South is intolerant of gay couples especially in the Bible Belt, but obviously that’s not the truth. I think this is the case for two reasons: one, the majority of Black people in this country live in the South. Second, the South is far cheaper (for now) than other areas of the country and statistics show the LGBT community overall suffers financially, so makes sense to me. That’s my thoughts.
