As most of you already know, gay marriage is now banned in the state of California thanks to the people who voted YES to Proposition 8. According to MSNBC, an overwhelming 70% of Black voters and 53% of Hispanics voted to ban same-sex marriages.
“When any society says that I cannot marry a certain person, that society has cut off a segment of my freedom.“
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
Perhaps some of you can shed some light on this because I’m confused. Don’t you find it interesting how both of these minority groups (especially African Americans) are extremely vocal in the fight for “equality” yet a large number of voters decided to take away civil rights away from another minority group which are the gays?
Just wondering, that’s all.
Meanwhile, isn’t it amazing there are Mayors like Gavin Newsom fighting tooth and nail for gay rights? I wonder if there’s someone like that in the third world…
