NAACP president Ben Jealous spoke out against the marriage amendment during his visit to the U of M today:
There is a very active effort in this state to split the progressive coalition on this issue and to split the black community itself… The National Organization for Marriage is investing dollars in splitting our community in a way that is reprehensible and designed to do grave harm on a wide range of issues.
In August, I posted about the National Organization for Marriage’s attempts to “drive a wedge between gays and blacks.”
I agree with Mr. Jealous, NOM continues to do things that are simply reprehensible. I posted about some more of their deceptive practices just this morning.
