Glad to learn about Rustin's posthumous award given by President Obama.

Awesome news.

Great news that Bayard Rustin is finally getting his due.

On another note, I was listening to a black oriented talk radio show this morning when the subject of the 1963 March On Washington came up. A black woman caller said to the black male radio host that the reason no women were allowed to speak at the march was probably because Bayard Rustin was the organizer: meaning that because Bayard Rustin was gay, he didn't like women. The black male radio host heartily agreed with this caller.

Many straight black women apparently think (erroneously) that gay men as a group dislike, or even hate, women. This is what we are up against.
