Some Truths That Perhaps Have Not Sunk In Yet
Black people in California =/= All Black People
10% of population =/= 100% of the problem
~30% of Black Californians Who Voted NO on Prop 8 =/= People you can spit on, blame, rage at, and dismiss, then turn around and expect to support you. Not that they would support a ban on gay marriage and other gay rights issues (because, if you’ve forgotten, many of that 30% are LGBTQ), but I wouldn’t count on their money, or their time, or the effort it takes to knock on doors, talk to people, and other grassroots activism. No matter how much I believed in a cause, even if it affects me personally, I would have a hard time being active for a group that actively despises me, devalues me, and blames me for their own problems.
The Black Community =/= Monolithic Groupmind
Black People =/= The Reason Prop 8 Passed
Are we clear now?
