73. The same thing happened in Ohio in '04...

the black communities around Ohio voted overwhelmingly to adopt the constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in Ohio. The black community, along with the republican party overwhelmingly passed the amendment. It has been well documented that the black community does not support gay rights. It is too bad but that is the way it is.

I don't know how to frame this issue so that the black community will reevaluate their position. Maybe there needs to be more dialog with the black community when they have issues by saying that we don't know if we can vigerously support their cause de jour because they don't support our cause de jour just as a point for the black community to think about what is important to them. I think that I can be assured that the conservatives are not going to support the black community in too many ways. That said I don't think it would be in the best interest of the liberals and progressives to abandon the black community over this issue. T

he black community needs to realize that taking away civil rights from one group is not the way to go! This is a tough issue because of the prejudices within the black community toward the GLBT community.
