Jay-Z sat down with CNN today and among the topics he discussed was Obama's gay marriage endorsement.
“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It's no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple...I think it's the right thing to do, so whether it costs him votes or not - again, it's not about votes. It's about people. It's the right thing to do as a human being.”

Gay Indianapolis student Darnell “Dynasty” Young (pictured), who was expelled from Arsenal Tech High School last week for carrying a stun gun that his mother had given to him to protect himself from bullies who were constantly harassing him, has been attacked at a local mall, the Indianapolis Star reports:
The teen’s alleged attacker, Khyran R. Delay, 34, has been charged with battery.
According to court documents, Delay told mall security officers that he recognized 17-year-old Darnell “Dynasty” Young from news coverage of his story and tried to talk to Young about it. He said Young got in his face and that he pushed Young.
But Young and Donald Richardson, a janitor who witnessed the incident, told police that when Young walked past Delay’s table in the food court, Delay told Young to get away from him and used homophobic slurs. They said that Delay pushed Young and then hit him in the face, according to court documents. Richardson said he radioed for mall security, and then Delay came toward him because he was mad that Richardson had called security. Security officers arrived and detained Delay.
Even though it had the votes to pass, Colorado House Speaker Frank McNulty (above)sent the civil unions bill to the House State Affairs Committee, where it will be killed, the Denver Post reports:
Asked why he sent the bill to House State Affairs, known as a "kill committee" because its members are all in safe seats, McNulty again spun the discussion back toward Hickenlooper.
"This is Gov. Hickenlooper's special session that he called for the purpose of passing same-sex marriage," the speaker said, continuing his practice of equating civil unions legislation as the same legal footing as marriage. "From our perspective, our side is focused on job creation and economic recovery. We ought not and we should not be spending time on divisive social issues when unemployment remains far too high and far too many Coloradans are out of work. . . .It's unfortunate that this scenario has played out where it appears that Gov. Hickenlooper is out of touch with Coloradans."
