In which NOM's strategy fails

Essentially, non-whites are more likely to support marriage equality. It dispels the myth that non-white community - particularly African Americans - are more homophobic and less likely to support LGBT equality. It's a really stupid myth if you think about it. Since the African American community is only about 14-16% of the population, there is no way they are responsible for the rash of anti-LGBT laws. The culprit should be more obvious - religious conservatives regardless of race. But I guess the bigger in your face is given to the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), whose document reveal that they maliciously try to control African American and Latin American identity in order to turn them against LGBT people (and completely ignoring the existence of queer people of color).
