As an African American woman, I am so ashamed of the overwhelming opposition to this ordinance. It never ceases to disgust me how an oppressed group suddenly feels confident to assume the role of the oppressor. Steve Gaines of Bellevue Bapist Church does not speak for me when he said, "All African American people do not approve of the gays calling this a civil rights issue." "I do!" Does this African American woman count? Has anyone been to the Civil Rights museum lately? Look, right is right. Anyone who opposed this ordinance was absoluetly wrong. It's sad that people truly fear what they don't understand. Gosh, seems like we have a very long way to go before one man's dream is fully realized.
