This was a very bad thing that Prop. 9 passed. And from the exit polling data I read alst night via Andrew Sullivan, it looks like African Americans were instrumental in passing Prop. 8 with 70% saying they voted for it. When is someone going to address the bigotry in the black community towards gay people? Gay people need to openly point the finger and say it’s not okay to be bigots just because you are black and have suffered yourself! Please talk about Prop. 8 very few blogs are.
I’m glad Obama won, but how come it’s expected of me to rise above the anti-black bigotry I was raised with, and go vote for a black man, but then black people can go vote to enshrine bigotry into law and no one challenges that?
