Wanda Sykes’ Speech Doesn’t Move Pastors Stance Against Same Sex Marriage
“I didn’t have to ‘come out’ black,” offered comic Wanda Sykes Monday during a speech at the NAACP annual convention, according to NBCLA.
It’s a remark that has probably brought chuckles from many audiences. But this is a convention at which many people have ties to African-American churches that don’t recognize same-sex marriage.
Sykes is a hero to gays and lesbians, and her audiences are usually friendly. But here at the NAACP convention, there were no guarantees.
