Re: “Time for a Gay-Marriage Initiative?

DavidAsset, I find it offensive people continue to pound away at that statistic. Statistics lie, as eric pointed out already - many of the black voters were older voters... If you look nationwide at the statistics, time and time again, the main difference is not racial, but age-based. If it were purely a racial thing, gay marriage would be legal in far more states. The real problem is old people. And not even really all old people, just some of them.

We in the gay community (particularly, white gay people in California) really, really need to do some soul searching before we really think we should have the gall to accuse entire races and ethnicities of discrimination, when it is those very groups that have laid the foundation that we fight on today. If you think we genuinely have a problem with black people, maybe we can start addressing that by a) being more accepting of black gay people, of which there are many and b) reaching out to the black community rather than avoiding them and denigrating them in public over and over again.

Frankly, I'm tired of other, misinformed gay people giving the rest of us a bad name by being so foolish.
