Well My Dad owns 4 shops, one is a wood working shop, one is a welding shop, one is a vintage car restoration shop and the oldest is a the one he talks about the least helping Vets find work.
In the shops people of all ages and races get a long. Everyone works as a team. Now the The Older Black guy talk with the Younger Black guys. Dad told everyone to let them all talk and understand what might happen. You can understand a lot if you hear what the others are saying to each other.
The older guys have told the younger guys that they worked to hard for what they have now to have the younger guys both black and white think they know what is best for now. Dad lost 3 guys that quit over what is going on. The Older guys just said let them go as what they want to do is wrong to them.
I all the shops you get paid by what you can do no matter the race. Dad has at least 5 guys that have been with him from the start and they run the shops 3 of them are Black, but they are all over 50 and have been around a while and 4 are Navy Vets. The younger guys that are still working for the shops know if you work hard you can get paid more the more you learn.
Hell, I'm up to $11 an hour. I work in the shop and in the office.

What I have learned is if you know more you are worth more. No matter who you are. I'm learning welding and later will try woodworking. Don't look at your past, god knows mine is messed up. Look forward.

I love pride. Just going to say that upfront. But yeah I get that some groups go a little overboard with the nudity and things. I don't understand that because it's supposed to be about orientation and being able to love who we want freely.

For the people who 'don't get' pride or think is not needed, how would they feel if they were risking being beaten up, killed, fired from their job, kicked out of their house, hated by their family just for being who they are? That's what it's about. Being able to say I'm whatever and be proud and not have to hide it.

Straight people don't even think of it when they hold hans in public, snuggle watching a movie or share a drink. Being non straight that's a lot harder to do.

I like boys and girls and Ive been on dates with both and I can tell you first hand how huge the difference is when I'm out with a guy or a girl. Huge!!

16, bi Canadian girl. love life, friends, and being happy. Message me if you want to talk about anything.

I dont think theres anything wrong with pride. Its a free country and you can freely express yourselves. Its not stupid at all.

There's nothing wrong with having a Gay Pride parade. Everyone should have an outlet to express their pride in themselves. If the Italians and Irish can parade to express their pride, why not the LGBTQ+ community too.

Anything can be a major focal point of your personality. For people who've had to repress that part of their lives, and finally come open about it, it becomes a very important thing to express. Plus, straight people have pride celebrations everyday, is just not framed that way. Movies show straight sex scenes, dating website ads are all straight couples, people constantly make out and hold hands in public. It's just as out in the open, but more "normal" to us
