Battle of the Victimhood Groups in Chicago

Let's see. Gays vs. Blacks vs. Queers (whatever those are these days):
Black Lives Matter Protesters Disrupt Chicago Gay Pride Parade

"But by far the biggest disruption was from a large group of “black lives matter” protesters. The group was joined by members of the black queer community of Chicago who announced the disruption on their website.

After noting that they had “purposefully disrupted the Chicago Pride Parade,” the queer group explained their reasoning.

“We do so,” the group said, “because our people are dying at the hands of police, military and state-funded militias around the globe. We do so because we refuse to be tokenized by the same corporations that sponsor state violence, refuse a living wage and profit off our poverty. We do so because young queer people need a better outlet to celebrate themselves than a mire of consumption and sexual violence.”

The queer group was also attacked by the “black lives matter” protesters who held signs and walked as a group to push their own message."
Well, Gays are now officially mainstream just like "the Man". And so are blacks who have even more rights and privileges than Gays, due to affirmative action programs and extra welfare if they don't marry. That leaves Queers (whatever those are these days). So maybe the next SCOTUS legislation will be for Queers (whatever those are these days), leaving group marriage until later.
