Our Choice on Prop 8 and African Americans: Reckless Carping or Productive Change?

Cindy Rizzo writes, "Blog pieces and listserv posts were littered with angry invectives about the African American vote in California. Ignoring over a century of historical context, they seemed to be saying, 'Now, see, here are the real bigots.'... [W]hat I find important here, beyond questions of cause and effect, is the fact that seemingly smart people in our community think that their careless emotional venting about race and homophobia is a good idea. At this time, I can't imagine anything that's less productive." [Link]
