Rep. Bob Allen asks: Are gays the new blacks?

I would urge Florida Rep. Bob Allen to consider hiring a PR Firm.

As some of you may recall, earlier this summer, Bob Allen was arrested in a men’s restroom on solicitation charges after offering to pay $20 to perform oral sex on a stranger. Unluckily for Allen, he ran across one of what I would judge to be a small handful of men who would pass up receiving a blow job AND $20 cash from a random stranger. What made it worse, was that this free blow job passer-upper was an undercover cop (figures!)

In the aftermath, Allen has gotten pretty creative. Instead of blaming addiction, everyone’s favorite copout of 2007, he has claimed that a “large stocky black man” drove him to it. Did I mention that this “large stocky black man” was an undercover police officer? Apparently, Allen’s natural defense method when intimidated by African American men in a restroom is to open his mouth AND his wallet. I don’t think MacGuyver would have handled it that way, but hey, to each his own.

So, I guess the question is what scares Americans more? Gay sex or Black men?

The Family Guy would say the former but I that Rep. Allen, is hoping for the later.
