Did African Americans Vote for Barack Obama, but against Proposition 8 in California?

I hadn't considered the possibility that a black person could pull the lever for Barack Obama AND vote against Proposition 8.

The irony is so over the top it's like, you can't make this stuff up. I wonder how many had tears in their eyes after Barack Obama won, yet they voted no on Proposition 8, which would have kept Gay Marriage sanctioned in California.

My gosh, could you imagine interviews where people try and explain how they split their vote in this situation, especially people who were crying after Barack Obama was declared the winner.

I personally think that the defeat of Proposition 8 in California only matters if a gay person desires to bring themselves down to the level of heterosexual marriage.
