Let's look at how voting on Prop 8 broke down by major ethnic groups:

So, most Black Americans deny this connection. Further, let's keep in mind:

Quote:
African Americans, energized by Barack Obama's presidential bid, boosted their numbers at the polls this year to 10 percent of the state's electorate, up from 6 percent in 2004.

...which is huge.

And then the court goes against popular will, in a judgment which is not being derided solely among conservatives;

Quote:
...it confirms conservative claims that judges are running amok -- inventing new rights and substituting their preferences for those of the people acting through democratic institutions.

So, Black Americans deny there is a relationship between Gay Marriage and the Civil Rights Movement, turn out in massive numbers and help defeat Gay Marriage, and then the Appeals Court makes their involvement in this defeat irrelevant.

...and you want to sell this is as a victory for civil rights? Really?
