Jim-Crow and Gay Rights

Sometime between my right ankle being a sore twisted mass of discomfort and my left leg being a sore swollen mass of yellowjacket stings and bites, this slipped by me.

I've been tiptoeing around the Jim-crow comparison with gay rights, in part because of the apparent black support of the amendment. (Check out the message board for this previous article I wrote.) Jonathan Rauch does an excellent job however drawing the comparisons intelligently without stepping on toes or really using African American hardships distastefully to further the cause of gay rights. It's a really good read.
