NYT: National gay rights advocates plan to join other civil rights leaders on Tuesday in calling on Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to end the Police Department’s current stop-and-frisk policy, which they argue constitutes harassment of young black and Latino men.
Back in March, the National Organization for Marriage released court filings that admitted it intended to "find, equip, energize and connect African American spokespeople for marriage... and to provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing these spokesmen and women as bigots."
But the NAACP board voted to endorse same-sex marriage two weeks ago. And now the gays are holding their press conference—from the Stonewall Inn—to denounce New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's racist stop-and-frisk practices that ensnare hundreds of thousands of black and Latino men each year.
Nothing like a wedge to bring people together, eh?
