I've been getting emails asking me about my feelings on Prop. 8 in California that bans gay marriage.
Of course, it makes me furious.
What most people don't understand is that every civil right in America has come to light via "renegade" judges. I mean, do you really think rednecks in South Carolina would have welcomed black children in their schools in the 1960s without "renegade" judges or presidential intervention.
Any civil right - black voting, school segregation, interracial marriage - would never have come to pass if it was put to a general vote.
That said, I'm also furious with the black community who voted by 70% to ban gay marriage. I mean, the black community would still be in the fields if it wasn't for "renegade" judges and presidents that used their executive powers to give them equal rights - the black community should know better.
