There is a significant difference between punditry and bigoted opining.

What an over reaction. The underwear ad was unique in that it treated Beckem as a sex object.
We are used to seeing that in ads with women, but not men. An ad that emphasizes male sexuality does not appeal to heterosexual men, but rather to gay men. There is nothing wrong with making an ad that appeals to gay men, but I have a feeling that was not the intention of ad as the pundit pointed out. He was crude in his commentary, but I don't think his intention was to attack gays.
Ads aimed at heterosexual men tend to target their masculinity an not their sexuality, because most heterosexual men are not interested in the sexuality of other men. The ad failed miserably, and the pundit may have failed in how he expressed that.

It's not about the underwear, it's about advocating a beating.

This great cultural disconnect is a huge tragedy in the African American Community.... it is past time for all people to become active in the NAACP which is taking this issue on. Benjamin Todd Jealous is a courageous leader.

Black churches are notoriously homophobic. What they preach about gay people on Sunday mornings from the pulpit is reprehensible. Yet  many of their members are living the downlow lifestyle.

A black friend of mine died of AIDS a year or so ago and the preacher turned the funeral into a sermon on the evils of being gay. But I also was brought up in a white religious family and they preach the evils of being gay all the time. They teach it to kids. They preach about the 'homosexual agenda' conspiracy constantly. It's more just churches in general I think.

Exhibit A. The silence is deafening. Guess all the comments are on the DL.

It's not the silence; it's the censorship that is revolting.
