Tim Hardaway: "I hate gay people"

Num blog que não saberei bem como definir (bom, sim, optando pela forma curta: uma merda) é relatada a "polémica" provocada há uns meses por um jogador de basquetebol norte-americano - surpresa! -, incisivo na sua verve homofóbica aos microfones de uma rádio qualquer. Ciente de que a estupidez do tipo é proporcional à sua estatura, coíbo-me de comentar e deixo o assunto entregue à pena do igualmente brilhante cronista de serviço, cuja avaliação merece ser lida com denojo. O dito espaço é consagrado ao comentário da vida política norte-americana, o que desde logo é desencorajador, e o seu autor é um suposto iconoclasta que tenta esconder a descendência directa do mais pestilento republicanismo hillbilly, entre ataques directos a Ann Coulter e a transcrição, sem propósito aparente, de citações desta musa da gangrena.

«(CBS4) MIAMI Former Miami Heat superstar Tim Hardaway told a local sports radio show that he “hates gay people,” and he’s gotten a lot of peoples’ attention especially in South Florida. “Disgusting. Having grown up in northern florida, dealing with racism there and desegregating of schools up there,it’s unfortunate you still hear things like that on the radio,” one man told CBS4’s Art Barron outside of a Coral Gables carwash that uses Hardaway’s name as a draw. The manager of the carwash was away and unavailable for comment. Hardaway made the comments while he was being interviewed by Dan Le Batard on 790 the Ticket Wednesday afternoon. The five time All Star was asked how he would deal with a gay teammate. “First of all I wouldn’t want him on my team,” said Hardaway. “Second of all, if he was on my team I would really distance myself from him because I don’t think that’s right and I don’t think he should be in the locker room when we’re in the locker room.” Le Batard took Hardaway to task, pointing out that his comments were ‘flatly homophobic’ and bigoted, but that only seemed to stir up the former point guard. “Well, you know, I hate gay people,” Hardaway said in response to Le Batard. “I let it be known I don’t like gay people. I don’t like to be around gay people. I’m homophobic. It shouldn’t be in the world, in the United States, I don’t like it.” Hardaway spoke to CBS4’s Sports Director Jim Berry Wednesday evening saying, “I don’t condone it. If people got problems with that, i’m sorry. I’m saying i can’t stand being around that person, knowing that they sleep with somebody of the same sex.” Hardaway’s comments come on the heels of a groundbreaking revelation made by former player John Amaechi, who became the first professional basketball player to openly identify himself as gay. Amaechi became only the sixth male atlhlete from one of the four major American sports(NBA,MLB,NFL,NHL) to admit he is gay. Former NFL running back David Kopay , offensive lineman Roy Simmons and defensive lineman Esera Tuaolo just recently came out. Glenn Burke, an outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Oakland Athletics in the 1970s, and Billy Bean, a utility player in the 1980s and 1990s, have also come out. No player has ever publicly admitted to being gay while currently playing for one of the four major American sports.

Now let me first say I don’t in any way condone what dude said, however I am just dumbfounded as to why people have an issue with what he said, dude was speaking his mind and he was expressing his honest opinion.There are bastards who mutter to themselves all sorts of racial and ethnic biases.I’m sure there are white folks all over the damm place uttering nigger this and nigger that but they must keep it quiet and hidden to mask their true disdain. I have no problem with gay folks, as a dude I can’t grasp the concept of two nasty, hairy dudes rumbling and grumbling between the sheets, but that’s just me, “hating” someone or some lifestyle is just too mentally demanding. I say I hate liberals, but that tis just me ranting, I do think most liberals are nuts but actually hating them is just counter productive. If there were a world without liberals what would I laugh at? Hardaway unfortunately is just too stupid to realize that uttering “I hate gays” or “I hate niggers” is a career and public relations killer
