The Black Community And Homophobia

There are portrayals in the media that play up the idea that some ethnic and racial groups are more homophobic that others. A popular notion is that the African American community is more homophobic than the white community. Where do these ideas come from? We'll talk with a panel of local and national voices to discuss attitudes towards homosexuality within the black community.
