This morning, protesters in North Carolina are saying "our fight for fairness is not over."
This comes after North Carolina voters passed a strict amendment to their constitution that eliminates same sex marriages. Amendment One also bans civil unions and domestic partnerships for both gay and straight couples in the state. Gay marriages were already illegal in the state.
As the general election gears up towards November, many Democrats calling on President Obama to speak out in support of gay marriage. So far, the President has been ambiguous.
On "Early Start" this morning, CNN political contributor Roland Martin talks about the political wrangling around same sex marriage.
