More on Prop 8 – Ta-Nehisi Coates:

“But if you believe black people are not just receptacles for bigotry, not just automatons programmed by centuries of racism, if you believe they consume oxygen like the Irish, that they ingest solid food like the Italians, that they enjoy a good drink like the denizens of Appalachia, that they like to party like gays of any color, that they like to dance like white women, then you understand that no group, anywhere, ever was ennobled by oppression.”

(Via The Atlantic.)

Embarrassing on a day we should be about freedom.
