Rather funny all the outrage over Sterling and Eich, when Charlie Pierce happens to notice the NBA just had its 1st gay player come out 2 months ago, and still there are owners funding anti-gay issue ads.
[note, I like his framing "anti-gay issue", since 1 issue doesn't mean you're necessarily anti-gay]
Why, the NBA should pressure the deVos couple to apologize or step down, or maybe fine them millions and force them to relinquish the club.
Not that that will make the NBA much more accepting of gays the day after tomorrow - they're still evolving on the issue, while Eich's moved on to evolve elsewhere.
[article in HuffPost Sports today about how the NFL is looking forward to their 1st gay draft pick - why you'd think these sports leagues would be leading society on this, no?]
I continue to be entertained by the haughty demands tied to the hypocrisy and expectations denying reality out in the real world.
Maybe instead we could come up with some principles, allow free unfettered speech, but more kindly explain our positions and use that to put peer pressure for progress?
Or maybe we could just fire everyone.
