Just as I don't think the African American community should be condemned if Prop 8 passes, I don't think it's fair to criticize the "(white) gay media," as though the fact more black Californians voted for Prop 8 than did white or Latino Californians isn't true/troubling or that leading black voices haven't long been concerned over heightened homophobia in the African American community. Homophobia seems to be a problem specifically in black churches, which is unfortunate, given what positive forces they otherwise generally are.
I can't imagine how it would feel to be young, black and gay, thinking even the liberal wing of your community thought there was something wrong or sinful about who you were. Avoiding the issue to be politically correct or to dismiss valid questions by alluding to racial motivations is wrong,* and is ultimately most detrimental to African American homosexuals.
Regardless of race, anyone in CA who cast a vote for Prop 8 along with their vote for Obama should be completely ashamed. There is absolutely no excuse or justification for such an act, that can only be described as discriminatory, selfish, mean-spirited, short-sighted and completely alien to what the Obama campaign stood for. Hopefully, with him in the White House and Democrats in control of Congress, the country as a whole will be a less welcome place for the kind of ignorance and/or hatred that led to this issue even being on the ballot.
And, that's all I'll say about it, promise.
*Not that anyone in this thread was necessarily doing that.

I got misty right when they called it.
I'm just so excited to have a Democrat in the White House again!

I thought I would post on election day to say that I voted and eagerly anticipate a tight race.
That said, in reviewing some of my posts here I came upon a news story that required that I clarify.
At some point I may have implied that Obama's trip to Hawaii to visit his grandmother was suspicious. This was based on reports that she was, in fact, not in bad shape and doing well. That, combined with the fact that he left his wife and kids behind, seemed to send a message that there was an ulterior motive. Having lost all of my grandparents, I know that if I was married with children, I would have done anything an everything to make sure that they got a chance to say goodbye. That said, it is not my intention to cast any dispersions on Obama for deciding differently. Every man makes his decisions differently.
After hearing that his grandmother passed away, I was immediately reminded of the loss of my own grandfather just a few short months ago. My heart goes out to Obama and his family for this loss. Though I disagree with many of his positions, he is still a human being and deserves to be treated as such. Perhaps we lose that connection when politics muddles our views. I am truly sorry for Obama and wish him, of course, no ill will. I am quite sure that her passing has taken an enormous emotional toll on him and I applaud him for keeping it together as well as he has. My heart goes out to his family. Hopefully, once this election has been decided, he takes the time to properly mourn the loss and finds the comfort in god and family that everyone who suffers a loss like this deserves and, in fact, needs.
The best part of the election, so far as I can tell, is that it is almost over and we can all go back to being a little more civil to each other (a boy can dream!).
Good luck to both sides and their supporters. This one should be close and regardless of the outcome, it will surely be a historic election.
This was classy.
I agree, though the initial accusations were far from it.

I hate when I'm the only person annoyed by someone.

Is anyone else annoyed by Chuck Todd?

Someone should tell Cady that when someone's non-communist computer is having no Internet issues and her clearly communist computer is, the situation is all her fault.
