Looking at the list of places where marriage equality passed it wasn’t the blacks. or the latinos. or the old people. or the religious people. or the poor uneducated people. It was a poorly organized, out funded, pro marriage equality movement in California that lost the “Prop 8” battle. This needs to remain clear to the people that want to treat ethnic cross tabs of votes around marriage equality as an indictment of a group of minorities.
