    dying breed.  Be depressed if that guy's views were on the rise statistically speaking.  They're not; to the contrary.  I think I saw a recent data point that more than 75% of young voters (age 18-29) are not against same-sex marriage.  

    Haters gonna hate.  But they are shrinking.  If America was that all out racist, no way President Obama would have been elected once, much less reelected amid a mixed economy.  

    I'm gay and I save my depression for things like climate change and the fleecing of the middle & working classes by the 1%.  Things where actual statistics are what could make a grown man wanna cry.

      Over time blew my mind.  ONLY 5% OF PEOPLE approved of inter-racial marriage in 1950, and it was still only about 50% in 1990!   Holy crap I had no idea.
