    To whom it may concern,

    I represent the televised presentation of the pride parade, and thus would like to discuss your participation. I can be reached at 415/302-4278. Thank you.

    The fact that you profane MLK’s legacy by placing him alongside the war-mongering right-winger Obama speaks volumes as to what you see the contemporary civil rights movement as. So does the fact that you have a CEO–that you are proudly touting your corporate institutionalization and anti-democratic, pro-capital power structures as a good thing. How can you be for equality when you’re reproducing anti-representative repression from within?
    PS Free Bradley Manning!

    Where is Bradley Manning? Morality and “Gay Pride” are now two different things. It wasn’t always so.
