THE OPEN SECRET

"They got a 24 hour homo watch waitin' for me at the airport"
-Eddie Murphy

Hispanics and Blacks don't like homosexuals. I can't understand Spanish, but I understand from people who do that spanish-language radio is full of DJ's making jokes about homosexuals. As Josh Kraushaar writes in The Atlantic, President Obama isn't openly backing homosexual "marriage" not out of any principled position or "evolving" ideas but:
Obama can't afford to even risk losing the deep enthusiasm black voters have towards him. They gave Obama a whopping 95 percent of the vote against John McCain last year and turned out at historic levels. He should get similar levels of support this year, but with the down economy disproportionately affecting the black community, he's not at all assured that they'll turn out at the same level as 2008. Backing gay marriage would virtually guarantee that some would stay home -- perhaps enough to tip the balance in states like Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Ohio.
Blacks do not care for homosexual "marriage," as they've made abundantly clear at the ballot box over and over again.
California's Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage passed in 2008 thanks to overwhelming black support; 70 percent backed it, according to exit polls. Recent gay marriage legislation in Maryland drew opposition from leading Democratic African-American legislators in the state. The same ministers organizing get-out-the-vote efforts in black churches for Obama are also railing against gay marriage.
These groups - the biggest "minority" groups in America which President Obama is hoping against hope will push him over the line into victory in November - simply don't share the left's social viewpoint on nearly any topic. In fact, the only explanation for why the wildly leftist and socially extreme Democratic Party keeps getting heavy support from these and other minority groups are successful pandering and successful distortion and lies about their opponents.

Socially at least, minorities really should lean more heavily toward Republicans, who tend to house more conservatives, especially in the social arena. Which is probably why the media and the Democrats have done everything they can to try to discourage any remotest mention of social issues by Republican candidates: it reminds the guys they rely on to win whose side they are on.
