Back in the '90s, when I still listened to NPR, they had a story on All Things Considered
, a long "think piece," about relations between the "Black community" and the "gay community." NPR was troubled by the apparent lack of comity between these two groups, which the leftists at NPR saw as natural allies; the reason for this was that (as NPR explained) both were "minority groups" that had been "oppressed by the mainstream majority," both had experienced the pain of "the struggle for equality."
They interviewed homosexual and Black intellectuals, who said the usual sorts of things one expects of intellectuals who appear on NPR.
But the piece ended with a brief comment from a Black preacher from some church, probably in Washington DC, which is NPR's geographical home. His comment ended with this sentence: "anyone who thinks we're going to support a bunch of f*****ts, is a fool." He strongly emphasized the f-word as he said it, in a most politically incorrect manner.
After his comment was broadcast (as he said it, without the asterisks, I hasten to add), the "reporter" who made the piece immediately closed it out and signed off, without any further comment.

both had experienced the pain of “the struggle for equality.”
They make the same assumption about the black and “brown” communities. That they are political allies, when in fact, on the ground, they despise one another.
