When I was growing up in the hood, being called “gay” was one of the most offensive things that someone could say to you. People would kill each other over something that! I saw many fights because someone called another “gay.” So how do you think I handled it when some guys pulled up beside me in Queens, and then started to scream homosexual obscenities at me?
Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the United States. In 1898 the United States invaded Puerto Rico, and kicked out the Spaniards. So how do you think I reacted to this man who said that he will never speak Spanish, the language of the invaders! Say what?
Finally I talk about Sharia Law, and whether or not there is a place for it in the United States, or other non-Islamic countries.
