    News Reporter Dale Hansen's Reaction To Michael Sam Coming Out as Gay

    This is awesome and gives me hope for all you old white guys out there.

    News Reporter Dale Hansen's Reaction To Michael Sam Coming Out Might Surprise You - YouTube

    from the transcript:

    "Several NFL officials are telling Sports Illustrated it will hurt him on draft day because a gay player wouldn't be welcome in an NFL locker room. It would be uncomfortable, because that's a man's world.
    You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You're the fourth guy taken in the NFL draft.
    You kill people while driving drunk? That guy's welcome.
    Players caught in hotel rooms with illegal drugs and prostitutes? We know they're welcome.
    Players accused of rape and pay the woman to go away?
    You lie to police trying to cover up a murder?
    We're comfortable with that.
    You love another man? Well, now you've gone too far!
    It wasn't that long ago when we were being told that black players couldn't play in "our" games because it would be "uncomfortable." And even when they finally could, it took several more years before a black man played quarterback.
    Because we weren't "comfortable" with that, either.
    So many of the same people who used to make that argument (and the many who still do) are the same people who say government should stay out of our lives.
    But then want government in our bedrooms.
    I've never understood how they feel "comfortable" laying claim to both sides of that argument."

    Perhaps the old black guys will soon follow, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    And if NFL players and management would react the same way, this wouldn't have been news.

    But the NFL players and management do not react this way.

    Racist. It's only okay to acknowledge the white homophobes.

    I don't see why the color of his skin should be an issue at all. But since the OP made it an issue, I thought I'd note that I find old black men to be more homophobic than old white men.

    Thus the race-baiting inanity of the OP.

    Yes, it was race baiting. And since I'd been through the ringer earlier today, trying to expose racist calls for violence against a sea of morons, I'd had enough and chose to fire back.

    lighten up, it was an attempt at humor.
