1. Did the "Yes on 8" side target the black community in particular?
I'm wondering about this because the CNN exit polling showed AA women voted "Yes on 8" by almost 3 to 1. That was likely the margin of victory right there.

I wonder if it would've helped, for example, to have Queen Latifah in "no on 8" ads?
