a mixed bag

Obama's status as president-elect is indeed a positive indication of dwindling racial prejudice in America, and an accomplishment of which we can be proud. On a disheartening note, however, many state initiatives on the ballot yesterday have reinforced anti-LGBT discrimination (h/t: ACLU Blog of Rights):

  • Arizona passed a marriage-discrimination initiative
  • Arkansas approved an initiative prohibiting adoptions by unmarried couples (aimed at same-sex couples, whose marriages remain unrecognized)
  • California's marriage-discrimination constitutional amendment (Prop 8) http://www.noonprop8.com/ is ahead in the polls, although its final disposition remains uncertain
  • Florida passed a marriage-discrimination constitutional amendment

Joy tempered by sadness; is this an omen for the next four years?
