Thanks for covering this. I remember when it was in the news. I was fine with it, however, the media painted it as if a significant number of white gay men were outraged, painting them as racist. I'm pretty sure this came from looking at nothing more than social media responses which is very problematic when making assessments about any population, and we see this constantly in what passes for 'journalism.' From what I saw in social media, there was overwhelming support and a very small percentage objecting. None of the objectors were coming off as racist, just criticism that nobody asked for input, it didn't need to be changed, etc. Of course they were condemned as racist by presumably a lot of white LGBTQ people. It's tiring, all of the distorted perspectives, trying to make people look at bigoted as possible. It's like an addiction on the left.

LGBT+ has NOTHING to do with how you look. It has everything to do with how you feel.

Sexuality has nothing to do with race. I don’t get why they would put it on the flag? The LGBT+ community has nothing to do with physical appearance.

Yes, they are trying to implement the aid of the black community, you were born black or white you weren't born gay..NO /BABY/CHILD BORN  EVER SAID "I LIKE TO HAVE SEX WITH MY OWN GENDER" UNLESS THEY WERE SEXUALLY MOLESTED.. and also, there are no orange or blue skin colored people....stupidity... "gay"("homosexual") is not who you are its "who you like to have sex with" AND GUESS WHAT PEOPLE NO ONE CARES WHO YOU LIKE TO PUT YOUR PRIVATE PARTS ON! EVERYONE DEALS WITH SOME SORT OF OPPOSITION SO STOP FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELVES AND TRYING TO GET EVERYONE TO AGREE WITH YOU...FACT IS... people are confused and that has nothing to do with ethnicity/race...AND NO ONE HAS TO AGREE WITH YOU, YOU WANT TO BE ACCEPTED IN SOCIETY BUT THAT IS YOUR OWN PERSONAL ISSUE AND EVEN WHEN YOU ARE YOU WILL STILL WALK AROUND WITH A CHIP ON YOUR SHOULDER. SO WHATS NEXT...LET ME GUESS... PEOPLE TO LIKE TO HAVE SEX WITH CHILDREN AND ANIMALS....AND THEN THEY WILL ASK FOR SOMETHING ON THE FLAG FOR THAT AND RIGHTS/ACCEPTANCE FROM OTHERS TO DO WHAT THEY ":fEEL" IS ALRIGHT IN THEIR OWN EYES....

I hate how people are trying to bring race into everything now. It's people like those who try to force everyone into thinking all black people are victims. If this community is supposed to stand for "equality and representation for all", why aren't the white, Asian, etc races included?

Snooby66 (3 months ago)
Nice move. Take a symbol that represents EVERYONE (yes, that is it's original meaning) and add specific colours to it to, somehow, make it less racist? So, now you have a flag that "represents EVERYONE ... including black and brown people" So, you have now, alienated "black and brown" people, but also marked them as a separate group within humanity. Yeah, not racist at all. Fuckin' idiots.

So in other words she brought race into another group??? I am white and I know what it feels like to have someone judge you because of color.... I felt out of place when it happen to me. Watching video turns head doing something and then the voice change... o.O lol But not to be offensive but BLM needs to be in the same class as KKK you know considered a racist group.

Racism is racism. People who think racism doesn't exist in the people of color are racists. People who think that all of society comes from Africa are racists.

Living in the city where this started, maybe you should actually listen to the reasons for the 2 new stripes before saying anything. Among other things, this was started after a number of gay bars in Philly were accused of, you guessed it, racism. The owner of one of the bars was caught on video making racist comments to his employees about black customers. And look at the Philly Equality March (if you can find any video because ours was the only major city that got no media coverage). The Pride organizers literally changed the date of 2017's Pride so they wouldn't have to share the day

i WILL be using the flag with the brown and black. we could argue about it, but it's just more simple to use this new one, that to discuss the usage and make excuses not to.
Edgar Fernando (5 months ago)
Great video. The original idea reflects any sexual orientation, not another differences. I am mature and married, where this new "inclusive" flag represents those conditions for me. Where are No binary, Asexual, polyamory, HIV people,asians? if we continue with this distorted idea we better create a totally diferent one

As I recall it was the (white) jeeeeezus-loving, african American churches who most vehemently opposed gay rights for the past few decades. Blacks have only held back gay rights. Remember obama came into office both terms opposing gay marriage?

turner pike (6 months ago)
I've actually heard black people getting offended if you compare black rights to gay rights because race is something you can't hide so I avoid comparing them together. And yeah I do have a problem with black people being added to the flag because really race is not a sexual orientation so it can't really be apart of the LGBT. I know being transgender isn't a sexual orientation but really it use to just be LGB. I don't think race should apply to the LGBT because really it wasn't ever made illegal to be black yeah black people couldn't go into certain places but and there was slavery but no one was really going to jail just because of their race. In the US it could be illegal to be gay up until 2003 when the Supreme Court said all states had to make it legal. Your not really being oppressed like gay people were. Like really gay people get bullied in school just for being gay and some states we still have an issue with handling bullying just because someone is gay like really sometimes the bully can just get off free. Also no one is telling you that you should change your race because everyone understands that it's not possible but there are some people that think being gay is a choice and really some people will tell gays they need to change. Like really it's like I am gay myself and it is difficult to hear homophobia at school by people who really don't understand what it means or people who don't understand how it's like. And the thing about being able to hide your sexual orientation is heteronormativity it's not really a hard thing to deal with when being gay but it's kinda uncomfortable when people assume that just because I am a guy I am automatically attracted to girls. To me it's like you know gay people exist right so can you please stop doing that? Really just because your black doesn't mean you know anything about the LGBT community and it also doesn't mean you should be apart of it. I wouldn't say this is racist or homophobic but this is really not the right way to represent the LGBT community. Again another thing about heteronormativity making a bit more of a understand to why it's different from being black, no one assumes your white we can clearly see what your skin looks like unless if you bleach it or have pigment but your still black either way. I don't mean to offend anyone with this comment it's just blacks aren't apart of the LGBT and I am trying to explain best I can why.

Josephine you are very astute. You have a wonderful sense of humor and of moral clarity. You exhibit intelligence in abundance without seeming the least bit condescending. Last but not least, you are quite attractive. Finally, I have two questions for you. 1) Do you have any white in you? 2) Would you like to? Probably a crass joke but oh well. Keep up the great work.
David Dutton (6 months ago)
1) The flag is a rainbow. Adding new colors does NOT make it a rainbow 2) If you're going to add a color for race, YOU SHOULD ADD ALL OF THEM (black, brown, white, etc etc).. and TBH adding the colors is silly 3) Why is it silly? the rainbow flag and what it stands for ALREADY INCLUDES EVERY RACE. It's really stupid and racist to add colors for 1 or some races but not others And just so people know I'm Native American. So I'm not just some white dude complaining.. so oh yea... where's the native american color? NAs aren't brown or black. We tend to be more of a golden or a bronze.. so .. hmm yeah.. I'd like that color added to please...the asian color? the middle east color?

Racism used to be such a powerfully ugly and hateful word. Now, that it's over-used to the point of losing its power, it brings connotations of victim wannabes who know nothing about suffering, or injustice. Victimhood is such a coveted status, which I don't understand why. Who wants to be a victim? Who wants to give their personal agency away? Being a victim means you are too weak, or stupid to employ your agency with enough effect to not become a victim. We are watching our country being seduced into communism before our very eyes. It's not as fascinating as I would have imagined, as it's just manipulating selfish entitled people who don't understand philosophy, history, or civics with emotional narrative and anti-western propaganda.

Im a brown trans man and honestly this hurts my heart to see and hear. I respect your opinion as a black woman, and i know thats hard enough... But you're not gay or trans or queer. As a brown queer trans man, believe me when i say that the gay white / white queer community excludes us ALL. THE. TIME. You don't feel it. So i think its intersectionally hypocritical of you to say adding a brown and black stripe makes zero sense when you're not even queer. But thanks for making this video and thanks for allowing comments. A discussion is very much needed.

Michi (7 months ago)
Those colors represent values/meanings that correspond to each color. The rainbow flag was created by San Francisco artist and gay activist Gilbert Baker. Even though the original flag was modified more than once it was never about race or ethnicity whatsoever because it was and is supposed to encompass all that. Racism within the community EXISTED before that flag even was created. Adding brown and black to that flag WILL NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE because those colors are there because Baker assigned specific meaning to each of the colors. NOT ABOUT RACE AT ALL. You can use the flag with the brown and black colors. Go ahead nobody is stopping you but understand that that will not stop racism in the LGBT community. That's a problem that is external rather than internal.

people of all races and religions have always been welcome under the rainbow flag,now people are waving their race and religion cards and changing everything or trying,they've already killed Portland pride for many including myself and if they change the rainbow flag i will no longer welcome it in my house,the flag has always been red,orange,yellow,green,blue and purple which is supposed to include all races and religion,this is dividing the gay community instead of uniting it
