63. I'm on the other side of the fence from you for a change

I'm trying to figure out why so many here are acting as though this is so unexpected and SHOCKING!!

Now, I know that I haven't been officially affiliated with the NAACP since my college days, but my understanding is that the NAACP and particularly its leadership, has long been supportive of marriage equality. This surprises me even less than the president's statement from last week.

This was from last year -

This was from 2010 - http://www.theroot.com/views/naacp-reaches-out-gay-rights-groups and referred to past NAACP president Kwesi Mfume's support of gay rights and coordination with Human Rights Campaign in 19 freaking 99!

This was from 2009 - http://prospect.org/article/naacp-takes-stance-against-prop-8

Good news and very encouraging but not surprising in the least. Not getting all of the "oh my god. This is SO unexepected!!!" and "better late than never" from folks here at all.
