I agreed with Magee’s conclusion — “regardless of what other people say or do, we’re going to raise hell until we get equal rights” — but not with his premise — “The black community historically has lagged behind the general population in ‘evolving’… on LGBT issues.”
That got me thinking. What really caused the black community’s rapid “evolution” on gay marriage over the past month? The answer is simple: We didn’t evolve overnight. We’ve been evolving for decades, even when the media wasn’t paying attention.
