Lest you think I’m picking only on California’s blacks, above are Asian and Latino Californians who supported the hateful, discriminatory anti-gay Proposition 8, even though in California’s history Asians and Latinos have been discriminated against. The Latino family in East Los Angeles pictured above even made the hatred of another historically oppressed minority group a family affair — because hatred, discrimination and oppression are family falues that we should teach our children.
This is fucking great. The Associated Press reports today of the passage of the hateful anti-gay Proposition 8 here in California yesterday:
Exit polls for The Associated Press found that Proposition 8 received critical support from black voters who flocked to the polls to support Barack Obama for president. About seven in 10 blacks voted in favor of the ban, while Latinos also supported it and whites were split.
So yesterday I, a gay white man, voted for Barack Obama and I was thrilled to be able to vote, for the very first time, for a viable black presidential candidate. I even put my leftist ideology aside — Ralph Nader is more ideologically aligned to me than is Obama — and I cast my vote for Obama.
So to read today that about seven in 10 black Californians voted yes on Proposition 8, which passed by about 52 percent to 48 percent — wow.
It’s so fucking nice to know that so many members of historically oppressed minority groups have no problem whatsofuckingever oppressing members of other historically oppressed minority groups. These homophobes’ problem isn’t oppression in general — just don’t oppress them!
