-- UPDATE - Internal memos obtained by the Human Rights Campaign reveal that the National Organization for Marriage (with whom Plante is closely associated) was actively attempting to - in its own words - "drive a wedge between gays and blacks" and "provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing (black) spokesmen and women as bigots." A 2008-2009 Board Update also revealed that one of NOM's goals was "fanning the hostility" (p.12) between the LGBT community and the black community.
