The picture below is from Design Observer, a blog about design and culture.  They’re part of the Polling  Place Project, which has over 3,000 photos about voting on Nov 4th, and is looking for more.  It’s an experiment in citizen journalism, sponsored in part by the NY Times.

Blacks VS Gays?

Noooo!!!!!!!!!! It doesn’t even make sense. (For a helpful analogy, see here.) But there’s a real risk that this narrative will start to take hold in light of the large quantity of black voters who voted against gay marriage. Worse yet, there seems to be some nasty racism “rearing its head” (as Sarah Palin would say) in the gay community. The always excellent Pam Spaulding has some great posts on this, here and here. There’s also this excellent post on all the other groups who voted against Proposition 8, and who aren’t being singled out for blame the way that black voters are.

Instead of just watching to see who is appointed, you may want to consider applying for a job!
