    Some call it political suicide. I call it political guts and I am most impressed by any politician who stands up for something regardless of the political consequences that may come because of it. Personally, I don't think it will hurt him considering the polls that say 48-51% of the American people support gay marriage, and that so many people, especially young people, support equal rights for the LGBT community.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......The President is an electoral politician, like all the rest. In order to get elected, in this case re-elected, they pander and cater to the Left, Right and the Middle (Independents); besides the Vice President put him in a precarious position, evolving on the issue of same sex marriage, just yesterday...



    Peace In,

    That's cool. He never really seemed outright hostile to the idea to begin with. Early in his previous campaign he had already taken a position that wanted to at least do civil unions. I think there's some merit to that idea in a way. Marriage should pretty much just be struck from the government. Everyone should just get a civil union and people can have whatever ceremony they want. I don't think his support will translate into being able to push strong federal weight behind equalizing the right to marry across the board. It'd be nice, though.

    It's hard enough talking to Sisters without them humping up on each other.

    Way to block Barack.

    No, really, I don't care. A European society with legalized Homosexuality isn't News.

    It won't hurt him for the most part even though those same stats show most African Americans oppose same sex marriage.

    It goes to show the so called black vote don't really matter because he gets the votes regardless of his policies.

    No coincidence his next move is to Los Angeles tomorrow to get that gay vote money.
