Fifty years ago today, four black men challenged the status quo by sitting at a whites-only lunch counter at a Woolworth's in Greensboro, North Carolina. That simple refusal to accept separate but equal led to a movement that changed the South and indeed the nation. These days,. you'll hard-pressed to find someone defending the notion of separate but equal for those of different races.
Is ban on gay marriage our 21st century equivalent of the Woolworth's lunch counter?

We can only hope that gay Americans can 1 day celebrate this kind of anniversary. Does anyone here think those men were incorrect in their behavior that day in the diner?

It's a current event topic. If you're bothered by this subject you do not have engage in the debate. At least it has nothing to do with Obama, jobs the economy and liberal vs conservative. Sometimes you just need a break from that subject too-if only for an hour!

Sorry anon, taking an hour off of thinking about the economy and jobs is not inappropriate, a waste of time or Un American-unless you're Obama or a current member of Congress. Constantly fretting is counterproductive, and certainly not healthy
