Do most people presume that Blacks are well liked by gay people?

I find that mainstream media is almost universally broadcasting that blacks are well-liked in gay culture, eventhough in real life I find that's not the case. For example, I find it's really weird that Milo Yianopolis goes on endlessly about Blacks when Blacks are probably the main racial group that gets hate racism in gay culture, and when Indians and East Asians have stronger links with the right-wing.

I also think it's mildly wrong/unfair for mainstream media to support a single race above all other racial groups. The LGBT community (in Europe and CANZUK at least) is mostly white centric and I mostly accept this since my real life is also mostly white (everyone at school is mostly white, the people I interact with daily are mostly white).

I guess the main question of this thread is about how people perceive race in LGBT.

I'd like to think that most of the LGBT community couldn't give a **** about ethnicity. Personally.

I think when you’ve been abused and hated as a result of something you can’t control you tend to empathise with others that have the same occur to them as a result.

You know what I meant. We have racism in the gay community and mainstream media supports it.

People at school only say that to me jokingly. I honestly couldn't care less whether you were black or white. Just as long as the guy looks after himself and doesn't have an absolutely awful personality.

I have sexual prefereneces when it comes to who'd I'd have sex with, let alone dating, so I don't get comments like this. There are some races I just don't enjoy having sex with.

I should have made myself a bit more clearer. That comment was about the person and being friends with someone, not about my sexual preferences. I've liked the same person (well, came to terms that I liked them) since Year 8 so I guess they're the one I would like to have sex with? But then again whenever I think about this person I generally only think about the potential future, not so much the sex but more the "life" aspect of it.

And you think skin colour has anything to do with that?

It's interesting about the sex. A lot of gay guys don't seem interested in having sex nowadays, especially the younger ones don't. We have changing attitudes towards masculinity and sex generally among younger people regardless of sexuality - most people haven't had sex by the time they take their A-Levels for example.

Maybe generally, representation of LGBT racial minorities in mainstream media, especially when the LGBT environment has been so monoracial.

Don't think it's the entire LGBT community, seems more of an issue with gay men tbh. They are the ones on Grindr saying racist things like no blacks no Asians no fats etc

I'm not talking about racism in the gay community, I'm talking about representation of LGBT in mainstream media, albeit this might have an influence on racism in the gay community.

I don't sympathise with Milo, but I need to point out slander when it is there. How can Milo Yianoplois be a racist to black people when he's husband is black and Muslim? That doesn't make sense. I don't think he's a racist. I think he's a pompous scalawag.
