There is much to celebrate! Barack Obama, the Senator from Illinois made history this week as the first black candidate to be elected president of the U S of A! People are thrilled! So why do I feel like crying inside?
As fortunate as we are to have an intelligent, progressive and inclusive leader, and a democratic house and senate, many people in this country are disappointed that California’s Proposition 8 may have passed, taking away same-sex couples right to marry.
How did this tragedy happen? After all, California solidly voted for Barack Obama, who was against the proposition in the first place.
On today’s show San Francisco resident Curtis Jensen talks about the mood of the city upon learning the news, and pondering how this defeat will affect the struggle for equality.
We all are a bit down about Prop 8 and we talk about some steps you can do to heal, learn and grow from this painful loss and how you can get back on your feet and keep on fighting the good fight.
Another unfortunate crush to the American dream is the failure to pass Proposition R, which was endorsed by our lovely Peaches Christ. The proposition sought to rename a sewage plant after President George W. Bush. Peaches was thrilled that 65,0000 people voted for it and she loved using the political process to make a statement.
Join us as we talk about CNN’s odd use of a Star Wars’ style hologram during the Obama rally, “help me Will.I.Am, your’e my only hope” and how to use sex in the advancement of civil rights.
