Prop 8

An illustration on the recent upholding of Prop 8 in CA. I read that one of the judges supporting the revision said that the only real difference between civil unions and marriage is being able to say you are married. An opponent to Prop 8 retorted with the idea that blacks should not have cared about having to sit in the back of the bus, as long as they arrived to their destination at the same time as the front. So in this illustration I tried to show the similarities of how gays in CA are being treated today to the treatment of blacks during the 1960s, when they were fighting for their rights to be viewed as equal citizens.
