Carolina, I cannot tell you how disappointed I am in you. I have spent
years defending you, trying to believe that I live in a state that
embraces the culture and diversity that embraces it. To pass an
AMENDMENT to the State Constitution, that lets the law determine who I
"should" love, is shameful. It is hard to believe the people of NC have
supported this. It reinforces the thought that
we are still "in the South", with separation and hate. BTW, North
Carolina. A bi-racial family had a cross burned in their yard in
Haywood county TODAY. How can this still be happening in this day and
time? People, if you are against hate, you have to SPEAK OUT. Please
do not stay silent. If someone is being mistreated, you CAN make a
difference! Let your heart follow love. Amendment 1 should not have
passed. My brother-in-law Bebop said it best a few minutes ago-- "I
hope amendment #2 is for the illegalization of divorce. That will truly
protect marriage, in a profound way!"
While I realize this Amendment has nothing to do with race, it does have to do with ignorance, bigotry, judgement. To me, the same people that voted FOR Amendment 1 are the same people that will judge you by your race, religion, sexual preference, etc. It is about humanity.
