I work with Republicans who are outraged when accused of being homophobic or racist, quickly identifying their one or two gay or African American friends. Yet, they vote for people who are openly homophobic and racist and who continually legislate against the very gay and black friends they claim with such indignation. You can’t be a friend to any member of a minority and vote in a way that hurts that minority group. Even more appalling is to be a member of a minority group and vote in a way that hurts yourself and others like you. How fucked up is that??
