Re: “Goodbye, same-sex marriage ban?

Everyone deserves to be treated equally. Regardless of whether it's gays wanting to get married, or college and job applicants wanting to be considered without regard to race, gender, ethnicity or national origin. Treat everyone equally, and don't pull that "some need to be more equal than others" crap.

Re: “Congressman Hank Johnson: Obama's immigration executive order will someday be seen 'like the Emancipation Proclamation'

We'd better pay attention to this man. He warned us about Guam tipping over, but we didn't listen to him.

Re: “The sad, sad picture of Atlanta's food deserts

It would be very interesting to see how many of those "food desert" areas have had food stores in the past, but had them close up because of theft or (in the case of a Kroger in my neighborhood) having the parking lots become dangerous areas...especially at night.

Re: “Land of the living Ted

Despite Mayor Reed's promises of "middle class developments", I'll bet you that in ten years the plaque honoring Hank Aaron's 715th home run will be sandwiched between a pawn shop and a liquor store.

Re: “Atlanta Braves moving to Cobb County

Will the Atlanta (and the national) LGBT community protest this? Cobb County is not gay-friendly, and the LGBT's sure kept Olympic events out of Cobb County in 1996. The same issues still exist. Have they just been forgotten about?

Re: “What law would you pass?

Congress (both houses) must obey TO THE LETTER all laws they pass that we have to obey.

Re: “Paula Deen's downfall

I agree completely, although there is a serious double-standard being demonstrated here. Rap musicians use the N-word all the time, and also refer to me and my sistas as bitches and hos without anybody raising near the hell that's been raised over Paula Deen. And that seems a little racist itself. Like the underlying message is "We don't expect decent behavior out of BLACK people. We know you're going to be foul-mouthed and vulgar, but you get a pass because you're just Black folks." And frankly, that pisses me off a hell of a lot more than anything said by an old white woman.
