Baby, don't sleep on Barbara Lee. This is a Shirley Chisholm four our times. Speak sistah! Speak!

Shane Moseley

Love her. Love her with a capital "L"

Lee's district is very lucky to have her.

Although she's not my representative since I live 40 miles outside of Oakland, I have always admired her loyalty to her convictions. She doesn't just say things because they are politically expedient. She says them because she truly believes in what she says. More power to her.

Go on now Miss Lee, tell it like it is! Black gay men and transgendered folks get bashed, beat, maimed and killed and seldom do they get justice or even a police report if they call the police. If not for black bloggers like Rod, most of us would never even hear of the violence and hate, since few of the so called main stream gay blogs bother to report it or care since black gay men seem to not count to anyone.

This is great to see. I think it's important to recognizes our issues as well

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS WOMAN!

YOU ARE WITNESSING ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL VOICES FOR JUSTICE...EVER!

THIS, GENTLEMEN AND LADIES, THAT WOMAN, THE CONGRESSWOMAN, WHO STOOD UP AND WAS THE SOLE VOICE TO NOT VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT'S WAR ON IRAQ! SHE IS THE ONE WHO SAID NO!

THIS, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, IS AGAIN THE WOMEN WHO SAYS NO TO HATE IN THIS COUNTRY AGAINST ANYONE....HATE IS NOT NEGOTIABLE!

I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS MASTERFUL SOLDIER FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE!!!!!!

THANK YOU ROD 2.0! THIS IS IT! THIS IS THE DAY THAT WE HAVE SEEN A FRIEND TO THIS COMMUNITY STAND, AS SHE HAS STOOD BEFORE! WE ALWAYS CALL TO SCREAM AND SHOUT! WE NEED TO FLOOD HER OFFICE WITH OUR THANKS, OUR DEEPEST GRATITUDE AND APPRECIATION!

I wonder if the "queens" over at the other gay blogs who will remain nameless will talk about Ms. Barbera Lee and her stand for gay rights. Probably not since most of those snow queens believe all blacks hate gays and are "evil" people. Anyway congrats to B. Lee for telling it like is about the suffering of Black gays and lesbians. PREACH!!!

thegaytekeeper

it is about time that the plight of the gay man is looked @...

Talarico

This woman has a soul that is on fire. Do you hear me? FIYAH!

She wants to do right by everybody, she means what she says and says what she means. I wish we could clone B. Lee and sprinkle her throughout Washington. That would be CHANGE!

And you better preach Rev Kev!

Jim

The whole of Congress couldn't have more than thirty honorable people.

Fox News told us that Barbara Lee committed treason when she cast the lone vote against giving George W. Bush carte blanche after September 11. That sounds like a pretty honorable credential right there.

J Matt

As always, my state reps and senators voted against it. A shame.

gurlene

Does anyone know if John Lewis has opened his mouth and said ANYTHING on that bullying case?

I think this was a courageous thing she did. Enough is enough. At least someone out there understands we are in a new millenium and gays do exist (with some quite prosperous) in the black community.

Thank you Rep. Lee for standing up and tellin' it like it T-I-is.

Jamar Herrod

Im so happy to hear a black legislative woman standing up for tragedies that have happened in the LGBT community. Equally important is that she referenced Michael Sandy's fatal assault which I know alot of people don't know about. I commend her forreal.

Steve Danielson

I am glad Barbara Lee is my representative. I agree with the previous poster that she is the Shirley Chisholm of our times.

She says it how it is and I am proud to vote for her.
