    I always love these "muzzle" threads. In order to not "muzzle" someone that uses a slur we should "muzzle" the people that disagree with his slur.

    The NBA fined him because he represents their organization. Apparently your issue is with the NBA. Maybe people that like their sports mixed with slurs can start a petition to make the NBA allow more slurs to be used.

    Oh yeah!! We can see on the Michelle Bachmann thread how they are insulting her husband because he might be Gay (I don't know or care), insulting her as a woman the way they never would with a leftist woman, and then treating Republican Blacks as 'Uncle Toms' or 'Aunt Thomasinas'.

    But racism is the history of the Left and, of course, the Democrat Party. We can never expect much else from them.

    Who did he offend?

    The player in question isn't making a fuss about it and would be a wuss if he did. Just because he's Gay doesn't mean he'll break into tears when he hears these terms. He's more of an adult than the player who used the term or those who are doing all the complaining.

    I don't disagree if that's what they choose to do but I'm not sure what was anti-homophobic in what he said.

    I could understand if he said he wasn't gay and hopes all gays die but all he said was he isn't gay.

    That's not the same thing at all though.

    Your example specifically implies Polish people are stupid.

    He said nothing more than he wasn't gay.

    True enough. Of course if I said something offensive to a customer, I'd get disciplined whether it's an insult or not.

    Jason Collins isn't even involved in this at all.

    If you used a term like that in front of customers, would you get in trouble at work? Even if it wasn't insulting them?

    If you cannot understand what pejorative means, or how 'no homo' was used as such, then I dunno what to tell you.

    The guy had a right to say what he said. Other people have a right, and were right, to criticize him. The NBA has a right to sanction their employees for on-duty behavior that harms their image. No issue here.

    How does anything about Michele Bachmann even relate to racist? Am I sexist if I don't like her? Republican isn't a race.

    Playing the race card from the right again?
