Don’t Bet On It

From Maribel Hermosillo at Policymic:

How the Human Rights Campaign Has Failed Minorities

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has taken a lead role in campaigning for marriage equality. They have had many marriage equality victories such as in Maine, Washington, and Maryland. The HRC has also prevented constitutional bans that would have stopped further dialogue about marriage equality in Minnesota. While they have been successful in pushing the conversation of marriage equality, what exactly is their messaging?

To anyone who’s paying attention there’s only one answer to that question: lies packaged as truth.

HRC has a very white-only community oriented messaging that is problematic to their stance on diversity. As a progressive organization, they need to learn how to be inclusive to communities who are typically alienated from mainstream politics. 

Seriously Maribel…

I wouldn’t bet on that happening.
