    In agreement and the rather unanimous instant reaction in the gay and progressive community misunderstood.

    And only you really understood it.

    That must be it.

    What are you credentials for recognizing homophobia? Have you been living with it all your life?

    Are you a trained sociologist, or some affiliated profession?

      ...are clearly on the wrong side of the issue. Roland Martin  

      was not attacking anyone in the LGBT community. Only

      joking about people wearing David Beckman's

      soccer clothing when the football season still in effect.        

      I got the joke. If you were wearing Beckman's apparel, I don't care if you're gay or straight, I would clown on you as well. That's called judging u on the content your character. not on your sexual preferences. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said so himself in his 'I Have A Dream' speech.

      Here's what you guys need to do: Take a deep breath, and focus on the real bigots like the Newt Gingriches, the Mitt Romneys and that ignorant piece of shit Rick Santourm. Those are the REAL enemies. Just invite Roland Martin to what Obama had done with Dr. Gates and the Cambridge Cop.....Have a Beer Summit
