  •  There wasn't a difference, a Maryland state (8+ / 0-)

    Senator wrote the owner of the Raven demanding that he talk to his employee about his advocacy of marriage equality! Kluwe came to his defense, even though Ayanbadejo is articulate enough to (and did) speak in his own defense. Ayanbadejo had just did a "no hate" ad when this happened (it was right before the victory for marriage equality in Maryland).

    My feeling at the time that the marriage equality people were making a huge political mistake in making the story about Kluwe (who is white) rather than about Ayanbadejo, because they needed more voices in the black community. Then of course Obama spoke up, and made it all a mute point, but... I still see this as a too often repeated mistake with same sex advocates, forgetting their POC allies.

    -1.63/ -1.49 "Speaking truth to power" (with snark of course)!
