DAILY CALLER: Most blacks don't equate gay rights with civil rights

President Barack Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus are not in step with the majority of African-Americans who don't equate gay rights with civil rights, former Rep. Artur Davis said in an interview.

"When you say to African-Americans, 'the gay struggle is the black struggle,' they don't buy it," David explained to The Daily Caller's Ginni Thomas. Davis, a former Democrat from Alabama, cited the prejudices that blacks dealt with as evidence: exclusion from the voting booth, job opportunities and colleges; and the threat of violence against them.

"African-Americans were completely, in every sense of the word, marginalized," he said.
