Uniformed police participating in Fraser Valley Pride has never been an issue. On the other hand, the event hasnít been held hostage by special interests like some other cities.

"Special interests" ?  :D  I think I have discovered a new code word....

"Gay people" = NOT special interests
"Gay people who voice their opinions on some issue" = special interests

Why would you think I was referring to gay people in general?.

When I said 'gay people = NOT special interests' I was referring to your point of view.

But 'special interests' is a term very likely to be used against gays by anecdotal Republicans.  So it's a code word for 'a group of people who want something I don't want' when I consider your and the Republicans.  I just found it amusing that you found 'special interests' INSIDE the LGBTQ group.

There are special interests inside every group. Itís even in the title, LGBTQ.

Us white cis-scum homos are privileged oppressors now, Michael. If you're not non-white or trans, you go to the back with the straight people.  Haven't you been following the thread?

Being uncomfortable around uniformed police is a valid emotion, but does that mean you get to hijack a parade and use coercive tactics to demand they be banned?  Especially these cops who are also gay and just seem to be enjoyed the parade themselves?

I really don't care in the end.  Watching the left destroy each other based on some kind of oppression Olympics is interesting.

"Special interests" is one of those weird pejoratives that means nothing but is used against people when there is a lack of bad things to say.

What does that have to do with co-opting a silly word used against LGBTQ generally in the past ?  Does that make it ok ?

You seem to be asking what is 'ok' for protests.  Why don't you tell me what is 'ok' and whether your definition could have been used in the past to convince those opposed to past protests.

I think it's sad but also heartening if they can start a dialogue that brings the police together with POC.

Banning someone is nothing more than trying to start a dialog on your terms. Donít be surprised if they are less than interested.

They are talking though, I think.

Edited to add: Also - if black people don't trust the police, it's not the black people's problem to solve really.
