Default Re: Black History Edition (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

John mentioned the "states rights orientation" common among Southern conservatives. This almost always excludes the right of states to recognize gay marriage--these people loved the proposal for a Federal Marriage Amendment. If they were content to focus on their own states, that would be one thing, but the Bush presidency showed us that their appetite for dictating social mores across the entire nation is immense. This is not unlike the demands made by pro-slavery politicians in the 1850s for ever farther extensions of slavery into the territories.
