We all hear about how Hispanics and blacks are against gay marriage by a large margin and that they are helping oppress change, ect ect.
Minus the fact that blacks take up 12.4 (Give or take a .1) percent of the population and minus the fact that out of that 12 percent only a fraction are able to vote AND minus the fact that out of those who are able to vote only a fraction actually get up and go the polls this rhetoric keeps popping up.
In fact, out of the demographics listed in this video that aren't specifically white, blacks make up a nominal portion of those individuals (Tea Party members, Republicans, ect ect)
The five groups that oppose equality at a higher percentage than they support it
Less Educated white people, 56% oppose equality
People over 65, 58% oppose equality
Republicans, 69% oppose equality
Evangelical protestant white people, 73% oppose equality
Tea Party members, nearly 100% oppose equality
So, can we be done with not only perpetuating this myth that blacks oppose equality the most, or at a higher rate than anyone else?
Let alone that blacks have been responsible for stalling change.
