Marring my extreme elation at this country finally living up to the content of its creed, has been my horror at the passage of Prop 8 here in California. We'll get in to that later. But first, can we also dismiss the ridiculous notion that black people are to blame for this shit?
EDIT: Adding more, because this meme has exploded across the mainstream media and the blogosphere at large. I'm shocked -- we're all in a post-racial America now, don't you know -- at the ease with which former allies are turning against each other. This is some sick, serious shit.
