Hurts So Bad

Dear Gay Men of America: Don't reduce me to a race.

Most anywhere I turn in the gay world, I see signs that tell me: Least Wanted: Black Gay Men.

I see them online in the countless personal ads that say, WHITES AND LATINS ONLY. I hear it in the voices of men who tell me, sorry, I don't do blacks.

Is it racism or just a preference? Whatever you call it, it brings me down and hurts my feelings.
