Podcast Whoopi on LGBT Africa Rights

Podcast Whoopi on LGBT Africa Rights

Last week, Uganda’s president signed a bill into law that allows sentences of life imprisonment, just for being gay. The law also criminalizes advocacy for LGBT rights with up to seven years imprisonment. In January, Nigeria enacted a similar law that punishes LGBT individuals with up to 14 years in prison, and anyone who supports equality with prison sentences of up to 10 years.

Goldberg says, “it isn’t right to imprison someone for who they are, for who they love.”

2014 National Black History Theme: “Civil Rights In America”
The Revolutionary American Thomas Paine held that “civil rights are those which appertain to man in right of his being a member of society.” From the beginning of our Republic, free people of African descent have seen themselves as citizens, members of society, and therefore due equal rights. From the nation’s origins, Americans believed that religion should not be a basis for abridging a citizen’s rights, but very few believed color should be treated similarly. And gender and sexual orientation were not even open for discussion.
