Oh, the irony of it all: When it comes to his views on same-sex marriage, the first black man elected president in the U.S. uses the same principle employed in the past by whites to justify segregation in this country.
I know what many of you are thinking now: Obama couldn't support gay marriage during the campaign because if he did he'd never get elected. That could very well be the case. I'm just pointing out an obvious irony I don't hear people acknowledging: The greatest success story of the black civil rights movement, Barack Obama, is on the side of political expediency when it comes to the biggest civil rights issue of our time. -- Will Harper
