Why are non-white people usually homophobic?

There isn’t one non-white majority country in the entire world where being gay is legal and socially accepted. Most white majority countries on the other hand are very accepting of gay people. 

Even in countries like USA, non-white people can be very homophobic. 

Why is this?

    Non white people seem to be extremely religious and are taught to find gay people disgusting and sinful.

    Because of religious and culture beliefs.

    Because it's sometimes related to religious beliefs. It is also a part of rigid gender roles and machismo. Heterosexuality is still seen as the only acceptable standard. When it comes to the home, traditional family values still prevail. Education also has an impact on homophobic attitudes, the more educated a person is, the more they are accepting of homosexuality. And btw, South Africa is a non-white majority country where being gay is legal and socially accepted

    $$$$$$$$$  All the countries that homosexuals are making news and forcing they ways into are Now got their homosexuals evil ways!

    It is just since normal people are Not making big news, they/we are Not being heard!

    The Bible even includes IF any church or religion even permits a homosexual to walk around in it; it had also decide to leave GOD and is now a devil following religion! Nothing to do do with GOD anymore!   These religions that are letting the homosexuals in, like the Presbyterian and Baptist are doing so for Money!  They want Money and will do most anything these days for money!  They are also Devil following religions now also! The Catholic religion not only wants more money, they did Not even kick out their males Rapist priests!  They do Not want to decrease their amount of members! So boys and young men are still at risk of being Raped by them! 

    It was on the news just a few days ago that homosexuals are still a small amount.

      If you're going to bad-mouth my faith, the least you can do is remove the cloak of anonymity.

    This is not the case. Native Americans recognise "two spirits" and Bangkok is considered one of the safest cities for gay people in the whole of Asia. In other countries, American fundamentalist evangelism has often pushed black-majority countries into homophobia when it was much friendlier than before that happened. Western colonialism is also responsible for much homophobia, as for example in India, where before the Raj, there was no homophobia.
