Prop. 8: Stop Ignoring the Numbers


The San Francisco Chronicle ran another story Sunday that wrongly downplayed the role of black voters in passing Prop. 8. Now, let me start off by saying that I have great respect for the story’s author, Matthai Kuruvila, but his analysis — and that of the people he quotes — is just plain wrong. African-Americans, along with Latinos, tipped the scales in favor of Prop. 8, and the numbers prove it. More after the jump.
