    I wonder where Derrick From Philly is to defend this guy’s actions???

    It’s not his fault he did it, it’s society’s fault. Society is racist and so he isn’t to blame.

    society fails many people, and of that many there are those who rise above the failings, and those who become a part of the problem.

    from the racist self-hating homophobic cowards who don’t lift a finger in the real world, and exist solely to spew their bigotry online, to the folks who did not have solid family lives, were left to themselves, and who found social outlets steeped in ignorance, violent macho-posturing…you get the idea.

    they’re actually rather similar – online cowardly trolls and guys like this gay basher in NYC – they both let the lousy family live they’ve had turn them into pathetic excuses for men.

    they’re both the victims of culture, and the victims of their own refusal to do something positive with the cards they’ve been dealt, and we see it here: some people feel so worthless that attacking others is all they have to make themselves feel as if they have any worth whatsoever.

    it’s a sad way to live. this guy is going to have a lousy time in prison. oh darn.

    Kiwi – You’re just sad that you can’t be locked away in the same prison cell as him. Everyone knows you’re obsessed with bottoming for black guys and you’re a total apologist for their bad actions all the time. A black guy could murder your family, and you would find some way to defend him. It’s quite sad, but it illustrates the clear mental illness you have.

    a “black guy” could murder my family, but that wouldn’t mean i would then take issue with “black people”. because i’m not a pathetic racist idiot.

    my point is simple, Troll – your family didn’t love and accept you, and rather than do what a great many other LGBT people do, and rise above it, you’ve let your families disdain for you poison your life.

    much like this gaybasher who is on his way to jail.

    @ “I wonder where Derrick From Philly is to defend this guy’s actions???”

    Find in the Towleroad archives where I’ve defended a Gay basher.

    No I don’t DEFEND Gay bashers, but I love to OFFEND racist queens.

    @ “. A black guy could murder your family, and you would find some way to defend him.”

    No, Kiwi would find some way not to blame all Black people for the evil of a murderer–something your White supremacist azz is incapable of.

    @DERRICK

    “something your White supremacist azz is incapable of.”

    Actually, I’m a Filipino New Yorker, currently doing a study abroad program in Manila.

    Aren’t you the racist for assuming who I was?

    Actully in Derrick’s defense you don’t have to be white to be a white supremicist. In fact there are several gay men of color in America who worship white men, even going as far as shunning people of their own race.

    I just want to know what kind of lunacy has gripped our country when one can get 20 years in jail for a couple of joints, yet only FOUR for beating the hell out of someone because they belong to a social group one dislikes.

    @MNBear – the same mentality that wants it to be harder for people to vote than to get a freakin’ assault rifle.

    the same mentality that puts a person in jail for years for petty theft, and rewards “white collar” crime with…..uh…. tax breaks and huge end of year bonuses?

  14. Derrick from Philly says

    @ “Aren’t you the racist for assuming who I was?”

    Not when you’re spouting White supremacist sentiments. I wouldn’t want to believe a Filipino could be on their level.

    I have respect for Filipinos. Now, I’ve met one today who isn’t worth my holding in that regard.

    Racist? I didn’t say Black people were superior to White people or that Whites are inferior to Blacks. Where’s the racism at?

    And White supremacists do have their allies. Now, I see they have them among Filipinos as well. Thanks for letting me know.

  15. Derrick from Philly says

    LOL…I think you’re right, Kiwi. He got me.

    @ Frank,

    they just don’t get it.

    I remember when I was about ten I was going through my aunt’s old Jet Magazines. I ran across the Emmitt Till story with the horrible photographs. It never occured to hate White people in general–ALL White people were not responsible.

    Years later, I read “100 Years of Lynching”. Again, it didn’t make me despise ALL Whites–just the ones responsible.

    But that’s an important element of bigotry and racism: you pick the worst examples in a race or nationality, and you make the worst examples representative of that whole group.

  16. Kev C says

    4 years may seem like a lite sentence, but for an assault, that’s a long time in NYC. NYC is very liberal and loves criminals. It keeps the cops, DAs and judges employed. They love criminals and give them a slap on the wrist while disarming the innocent to be beaten and killed in the streets (I hate living in NYC and will be moving soon). Alfonso will be transfered to Rikers for a while, where he will be raped.. because the cops have it arranged for rapes to happen in Rikers. That’s how the system works.

  17. Lee says

    Maia black commit more violent crime that’s a statistical fact it would be idiotic to not be more apprehensive its called survival if you want to die then that’s on you. Bet this couple will be watching over their shoulder from now on.

  18. Frank says

    It’s a statistical fact that whites commit more more mass shootings and sexual crimes such as peophillia than any other race in America, yet nobody is looking over their shoulder or hiding their children away from them.

  19. Excuse Me says

    Why is it that the ugliest of this kind feel that all the gays want them? Or, is it that they are lashing out because we DO NOT want them? Does anyone rememeber the biogot and burning in hell now, sam kinison with the same complex? As ugly as this guy and guys like him are, no man, woman or animal would want them! I wish they would realize this truth and just kill themselves instead!

    @ MIKEINSANJOSE,

    While I’m clueless as to what was in your comment, I’ve come to realize that twlrd only censors comments with content that demeans White folks, even the sarcastic ones. If a comment with white supremacist connotations appears, it gets a pass no questions asked. Oh well.

    Not long ago I posted a comment directed @ HAGATHA and JACKFKNTWIST which basically said the same things they’ve been saying about homophobia in non-white communities, only re-arranged and directed towards white folks and it never made it. I actually laughed all night as it was simply pathetic on the part of ANDY. The sarcasm behind went straight over his head.

    I remember when I was in college and this site was my number one stop every morning before I hit the books. How anyone with a shred of common sense can allow some of the stuff I’ve seen on here lately, is beyond me.

  21. Gino says

    You can bet if the roles were reversed and a group of gay teens attacked a black person, all the black posters, especially gay blacks, would be trying to shame the entire gay community with homophobic remarks bashing all gays. Yet the roles reversed and we have to ignore the obvious.

  22. Lee says

    Actually frank yes I do I always assume to weird older white guy is a perv its called common sense just as its common sense to be on your guard when a large group of young(16-30) black males you dont know come up toward you only a fool would not become supsicous in either situation you can’t trust anyone ever especial those who look like criminals cause guess what stereotypes exist for a reason and are true more often than not.

    Good. Next, go after any net worth this idiot has in civil court. Bankrupt him once his is out of prison. MAKE HIM WORK FOR YOU…a judgement against him will have him doing just that. I sure hope he enjoys his time in prison. Just don’t bend over, buttercup…it only hurts the first few dozen times…if you’re lucky…

  25. Frank says

    First of all, I don’t know if you’ve be reading the news lately but it’ not just weird old guys that are molesting kids. Gee I’ll have to remember words next time me and a group of my other black friends are walking into a gay bar. We’ll be careful to try not to make any sudden moves, because as you say “only a fool would not become suspicious when a large group of young black males is walking towards them”.

  26. DK says

    I like how Gino tries to distance himself from white creepiness and crimininality by pinning it on “weird older white guys.” Nope. Since we’re stereotyping, let’s have some realtalk: white guys (and not just “older ones”) are more likely to be pedophiles, mass shooters, drunk drivers, and serial killers. White guys have killed more people than any group: form the Crusades, to the Inquisition, to the Witch Trials, to the Indian Genocide, to the Civil War, WWI, WWII, the Holocaust, the Iraq War, the Great Depression, and the financial shenanigans that destroyed lives through the Great Recession. White men have been responsible for more death, destruction, and downright evil behavior throughout human history than any other demographic. But I’m supposed to be scared of some poor powerless black kid?

    Maybe the reason some blacks are homophobic is because white gays continue to demonstrate that as a group they are similar to the KKK (I know it’s not true of all, but hey, it’s okay to stereotype). Maybe you get what you put out? Just a thought.
