“That was our mistake. So many African Americans don’t look at gay marriage as a civil rights issue. They look on it as a religious one. And we, for whatever reason … fear? Arrogance? Complacency? We did not do enough outreach to them. We need to begin a dialogue with them, because we should be putting this back on the ballot every election every year until we win.” – David Geffen
