Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008 | These “No on 8” demonstrations are fine, however, in order for the time and energy expended to be measured as truly successful, these marches, rallies and other events need to take place outside the comfort zone of Hillcrest, Bankers Hill, North Park and Balboa Park.

The events need to be held in the black and hispanic neighborhoods where the “Yes on 8” vote was very high such as Chicano Park, Logan Heights, National City, San Ysidro, etc.

These events also need to take place where the white “Yes on 8” vote was extremely strong including Poway, Coronado, Vista and Spring Valley.

Until the “No on 8” protest organizers have the intestinal fortitude to get out of their comfort zones, then they’re just preaching to the proverbial choir.
