84. Those large metro areas have a high percentage of black voters, and they voted against the amendment

I will repeat what has been stated here - this vote broke down by rurality and being a member of a conservative church.

Overwhelming majorities of North Carolinians living in rural areas who belong to conservative churches voted for this amendment. I am certain that that will be true across all ethnicities. Yes, black people in rural areas who belong to fundamentalist churches voted for the amendment, as did their white neighbors. And yes, in urban areas where there are conservative historically black churches, we're going to see those congregations supporting the amendment. We're also going to see lots of progressive diverse congregations overwhelmingly opposed, and they phonebanked and worked against the amendment. I saw them.

Majorities or near majorities of people living in urban areas voted against the amendment.

If we had a way to look at the numbers, I would guess that near 100% of atheists and agnostics voted against the amendment, and near 100% of people belonging to fundamentalist Protestant churches and conservative Catholic dioceses voted in favor. We have relatively few Jewish, Muslim, and Hindi people in North Carolina and the vast majority of them are in urban areas and I'm going to guess that most of them are liberals who opposed.

You can go ahead and try to start trouble between gay people and black people - a la the NOM strategy - all you like, but we are not buying. I stand with my gay black brothers and sisters who don't need this kind of divisive crap.
