Music and movie mogul David Geffen insists gays only have themselves to blame for the new same-sex marriage ban in California – because they didn’t lobby the state’s African-American community for support.
As a result, the gay DreamWorks executive fears black people voted against same-sex nuptials last week on religious grounds – and it was that vote that cost the gay community their marriages.
Geffen told website TheDailyBeast.com: “That was our mistake. So many African-Americans dont 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.”
