64. My intent was not malice

 

I have a friend who hates it when people do not capitalize Black, which also falls under the category as human.

So I did some digging on to why I would do such a thing and this kind of sums up my intent.

https://www.quora.com/Why-is-the-word-black-sometimes-capitalized-when-referring-to-race
To conclude: “Black” is not a race. It rather pays respect to a group of people distinguishable in their culture, history and even in their genetic make-up from any recent immigrants from Africa.


the part that refers to my capitalization, is this: It rather pays respect to a group of people distinguishable by their culture, history....

To me there is a history to the treatment to a group of humans who are gay. People are killed, shunned, denied jobs and more, as you well know.

I was just tipping my hat. Really, I did not mean to single out in a disrespectful way or in a sense of "otherness".

I now know not to capitalize the word gay and that in doing so, I may have inadvertently slighted individuals I was trying to respect.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Bernie Sanders
