    As for whether the statement in question was racist... that can be argued either way.

    I just ran two tables. One of them showed black respondents more likely than whites or "others" to say that "sexual relations between two adults of the same sex" are "always wrong." The other shows basically no difference among whites, blacks, and "others" in affect toward "gay men and lesbians." A perfect setup for an endless circular argument. Great. All in all, I side with the folks who warn against sweeping generalizations.
