prop 8

Marc Lacter of LA Biz Observed puts its victory in perspective:
Shameful. And what's truly stunning about the results - though not surprising - is that African Americans voted overwhelmingly against extending to gay people the civil rights once denied them. One possible factor behind the yes vote: depressed voter turnout in California due to the early calls back east in the presidential race. The ironies are mind-boggling.
I couldn't agree more. We Obama fans patting ourselves on the back today about how much America has changed should remember there's still a long way to go.
