From Apartheid to Same-Sex Marriage

Maybe the US could enter into "constructive engagement" with this South African policy. What's the over-under on how long it takes W to complain about activist judges in South Africa?

from apartheid to saamheid, male or female.

South Africa is still a racist nation though, if you're a young white guy looking for a job, even if you're better than the black guy you don't get the job.

and i'm sure it will still be a homophobic society even after the legalization of same-sex marriage. dismantling the institutions of discrimination is only a part, though an integral one, of the struggle against discrimination and for something like a just society. changing attitudes takes a lot longer, and to really affect behavior, that's what's required.
