My joy over an Obama victory has been somewhat tempered by the passing of Prop 8 in California, which wrote a banning of gay marriage into the state constitution.
How sadly ironic it is that it was primarily black homophobia, hand-in-hand in tandem with Morman funding of the proposition, which wrote discrimination into the state constitution. 70 percent of African-Americans voted for the proposition, the only group of people that voted in favor of the measure - white people, Latinos, old, young, men, and women all were evenly split or a little on the no side. This historic election, with an increased black turnout, brought with it increased discrimination in California.
