On point, as usual.
I gotta say, It’s funny that these cats (Terrance Dean, D.L. King, etc. ) have been trying to couch their self-promotion in some kind of larger social concern, like citing the D.L. “phenomenon” as a reason for the disproportionately high rate of AIDS among black women. The big problem with that logic, of course, is that it’s very, very creaky (though it does fits in nicely with the narrative, which annoyingly always taken as a given — see Obama’s interview with the Advocate — that black people are leaps and bounds more homophobic than other groups.)
This faux-concern about gay bogeymen in the, er, closet, is much more media-ready; it has sex and secrets, villains and victims. But you know you shouldn’t always believe stuff you see on television.
