Black or African American is considered a race, like Caucasian Asian, Latino, Native American, etc.....gay is not considered a race, therfore gays using the Civil Rights movement of the 20th century as a benchmark for their struggles is not a valid argument.
She has a point, and apparently her point upset the local militant gay agitators at her University. Once they sick their attack dogs on someone, no matter how baseless the attack, it is often easier to give THEM what they want (sooooo tolerant of differing opinions, those militant gay agenda types) and deal with the civil lawsuit from those who were targeted than to stand up for what is correct, true and right.
The University has the right to fire her and they don't have to give a reason. If she can show that her firing was against public policy she might have a case, but from what I've read so far, she has no case.
"The Census Bureau collects race and Hispanic origin information following the U.S. Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) standards for collecting and tabulating data on race and ethnicity. In October 1997, the OMB issued the current standards, which identify five race groups: white, black or African-American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. The Census Bureau also utilized a sixth category — “some other race.” Respondents who reported only one race are shown in these six groups."
I expect an apology for the unfounded personal attack.
I guess you are calling obama, his OMB and everyone who deals in race ignorant?
Least I got through your whole first paragraph this time...
Maybe one day you'll get me through a full post of yours...

Doubt many decide to become straight or homosexual, either you are or you're not. Just don't bother me with it, I was cursed with a hot buttocks that chicks love.
The question on the census form is fine. That's why they have this disclaimer for people like you...
http://www.census.gov/population/race/The racial categories included in the census questionnaire generally reflect a social definition of race recognized in this country and not an attempt to define race biologically, anthropologically, or genetically. In addition, it is recognized that the categories of the race item include racial and national origin or sociocultural groups. People may choose to report more than one race to indicate their racial mixture, such as “American Indian” and “White.” People who identify their origin as Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish may be of any race.
She lost her 6th District appeal; she was described by the judges' opinion as having spoken on policy opinions relating to her job in hiring at the University of Toledo. Her statements were at odds with University policy.
THANK YOU Crystal Dixon!!! I've been saying all along comparing the rights of gays to civil rights is an absolute disgrace. She got it right. So why was she fired???
In many states, gays can be denied jobs or housing merely due to their sexual orientation. For a long time, gays were arrested for merely hanging out at a gay bar under charges of sodomy. You don't think employment and housing are rights?
There was never any doubt that she was rightfully fired. She stood up for what she believed but such actions have consequences.
Whether endowed by her creator or evolution, that's what she is. Undeniably. Unchangably.
Wake me when the pillow biting or carpet munching gene is found.*
I seperate the two merely because the homosexual community does. i.e "gays and lesbians"...
