    Why Do Many Modern Liberals Seem To Think We Are Still Living In The Jim Crow Era? I rarely ever see examples of racism in everyday life. So much so that it’s shocking with a blatant racial slur is uttered within earshot. I eat at restaurants with people of all races, sexes, sexual preferences. I work with people from all these groups. I’ve had bosses of different races and sexes. These groups also hold public office at all levels.

    Michael Sam, Jason Collins came out as gay last year and were met with nothing but support by all forms of media, as are most people who come out.

    The few public figures who do make sexist, racist, homophobic remarks are immediately turned into pariahs and admonished by all of society.

    Yet listen to MSNBC talking heads for 5 minutes and the hyperbole they use around all of these issues and you’d think that gays/blacks/women were regularly being beaten, abused, and lynched in the town square.

  • Mason says:

    Why Is This Michael Sam Guy Getting All This Negative Press? I see this guy as a success from what he overcame as far as his brothers dying and some more ending up in prison. But why does the media need so much more attention to a guy cuz of his different lifestyle?i.e Jason Collins the guy sucks but he’s very popular now cuz he came out, and some people are mad cuz no NBA team has signed him saying because he’s gay but in reality no team wants him cuz he sucks badly.

  • Now, After Michael Sam Announced He Was Gay, Will This Ultimately Show Who The Classless Fans Are? There are still fans trying to humiliate gay people and I am sure this will also happen with Michael Sam. He did a brave move, now we’ve got to see if the decision to come out before his NFL carrer was a mistake or not. I am happy for him that he has the guts to announce it to the open world. Wish him a successful carrer, regardless of which team will draft him.
    itachi, the fact is that homophobia still is a big thing and especially because both Christianity and Islam are against homosexuality, the number of homophobes rather increases. People should take Sam as a role model. Getting horny on women’s underwear as a man and announce it is nowhere near the same as getting horny on another man as a man and announce that.

      I really don’t see why we need to make such a big deal out of the whole ‘this guy is gay’ thing.

      Jason Collins became a friggin celebrity when he came out. Who cares that he’s gay? Why is that a big deal in any way? If we’re going to claim we want ‘equality’, let’s not put people on a pedestal for being slightly different.

      I have a fetish for women’s underwear. Am I a hero for expressing this? *rolls eyes*

      Someone invited him to attend, which is the same way how Ted Nugent was able to go last year.

      Being gay is not a historic achievement, but being a gay NBA player is a bit of one.
