It's a nice tweet. Then you read the replies and weep for this country...

Lame. What are you going to do for marriage equality, mr president??

R1, he's already done more than every other President combined. Idiot.

I haven't always been the biggest fan of Obama - he went through a brief period under Rahm's tutelage where he actively spurned LGBT causes - but he's really come around ever since Rahm was sent away to Chicago. I value his support of our community, especially in the face of Republican evil.

When is he going to stop holding Bradley Manning illegally? When is the media ever going to acknowledge he lied about the Iraqi war being over like Bush did?

R4, yes he has, moron. Duh.

Has Oprah ever tried to seduce Michelle and bring her into O and Gayle's lez circle?

Understand this, Canada currently has full equality but Canada's current leader, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, does not think gays should have fully equality and has already tried to overturn it in Canadian Parliament.
The current US President, Barack Obama, believes gay people should have fully equality. But many states still refuse to accept this.
I would be more nervous in Canada right now.

House Democrats have also tweeted a celebration of Pride month...

I hope that the President does not read those replies. I rad some and had to stop because the blatant racism and hatred made me nuts. Bush never got this kind of hatred.
The President seems like a decent man. I hope his skin is thick.

"I hope that the President does not read those replies. I rad some and had to stop because the blatant racism and hatred made me nuts. Bush never got this kind of hatred."
I disagree with that. Yes, Bush obviously never got the racism because there aren't really racial slurs to use against a WASP, but he certainly got the impassioned hatred directed at him.

R12, the huge difference is that the hatred directed at him was 1) justified, and 2) based on facts and things Bush actually did (and didn't do).

This is, of course, the best response to the President's tweet.

No thanks. I am still upset over reading the comments about the bi-racial couple on the new Cheerios commercial. We haven't progressed as far as I had hoped.

R16, well, this isn't just racism. There's a ton of homophobia in those comments too. You know, just to make it even worse.

I didn't see that Mila Kunis tweet at R20, but her entire feed is complete garbage. Nothing but trite gibberish.
...and it's a parody account. Apparently, she doesn't have one.

General Mills is running a Cheerios commercial featuring a mixed race family. It's on Youtube and apparently a lot of comments are appalling. There's some discussion of it here:

This is exactly why we need to ram in as much freedoms and progress as we can now before another fuckwad GOP President comes in or they take over the Senate.

If you actually look at the sheer progress that we've made since 2009 it's staggering. Illinois was a setback, but that's not Obama's fault but more the inept, corrupt politicians in Illinois included that piece of dog shit, Rahm Emmanuel.
Obama has facilitated an atmosphere of tolerance in which more and more state legislatures do feel more comfortable to enact more equality measures and for that alone, he should be praised.
