The night our nation elects our first Black President, thus far at least 3 anti-gay amendments have passed in different states. Let's hope CA's Proposition 8 is an exception. And yet, despite my sadness, I can not help but sit with tears of joy streaming down my face for the Obama family and all Black people and racial minorities. Each advance in civil rights is one step closer to civil rights for us all. Congrats to President-Elect Obama!
