News Army Recruiter to African American Gay Man: Take Your Black Ass Back to Africa

“GO BACK TO AFRICA AND DO YOUR GAY VOODOO LIMBO TANGO AND WANGO DANCE AND JUMP AROUND AND PRANCE AND RUN ALL OVER THE PLACE HALF NAKED THERE.”
That’s what an army recruiter Sgt. Marcia Ramode told Corey Andrew in an email after he revealed that he was gay. Romode also told Andrew that, as an African-American, he couldn’t possibly have “deep roots” here in the United States, and she also insisted that she has “more rights than you.” Which is true, of course. Romode does enjoy more rights than Andrew—and isn’t that a crying shame?
Oh, and it wasn’t like Andrew was baiting Romode—at least not at first. Andrew posted his resume to a website, and Romode contacted him about enlisting.
