i'm pretty sure black people back then had it a lot harder than gays have it today....i'd be a lot more baffled about that...

That's kind of a weird statement... Considering that 'gay' is a sexuality and 'black' is a skin colour/race. There are gay black people. Also, gay people used to have it really bad as well. They used to be killed, beaten, and banished in a lot of places (and still are). It's not as hard for gay people now but comparing it to what black people used to suffer through is not a fair comparison.
I think that any discrimination against anyone for something they can't control is baffling. No matter what size.

Yeah but it's more personal when it's that close to your age. Like obviously slavery and discrimination was really bad, but that will be over a hundred years ago for the kids reading about it. The gay discrimination is when their parents were kids and they'll think "I wonder if my parents were discriminating. &then you can tell them "yeah i mean back in my day op was a huge faggot"

Discrimination against black people is something that is quite recent.
Even though the civil rights movement peaked in the 50s and 60s in America many are still alive who remember it. Aside from america South Africa was still ruled by an apartheid government as recently as the early 90s. It is pretty close.
