This is also compounded by altering or omitting historical facts that would the least favored minorities to be viewed as actual socioeconomic contributors in various fields of endeavor that range from entertainment to math and science. Unfortunately this is still the case with those segments of our population that is darker than others.

As a splinter group; upper-class gay white males w…
