Look at every country that allows gay marriage and you see something VERY interesting…

Every day or so we get a chart from Statista showing figures for various things. Like who in D.C. gets the highest speaking fees (Chelsea Clinton? really?) This one is about which countries in the world allow gay marriage. Take a look at this chart and see if you see what we saw.

So is homosexuality part of “white privilege” — if there is in fact “gay privilege,” which is conferred by the privileged white leadership. Because other than Jacob Zuma, the leader of South Africa — and one genetic half of our president — none of the leaders of the countries which allow gay marriage are people of color. The grandparents of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, the president of Argentina were from Spain and Germany. Even the president of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, has Bulgarian ancestry.

Also of note is the fact that gay marriage is allowed in majority Christian countries – you know, those same terribly intolerant Christians who won’t bake wedding cakes or pizzas.

So shall we start a pool to guess which nation will be next?
