I would like to apologize to our entire gay and lesbian community that the hate expressed by Tracy Morgan still exists. I'm sorry someone can stand on a stage and spew violent words, then issue an apology and go back to work. It's time for this hate to end.
It seems to me that Tracy has channeled the anti-gay anger in our culture and is holding it up for us to examine. The things he said are merely more outrageous versions of homophobic beliefs that all of us live with -- and silently accept -- every day.
In a year when we have experienced horrible suicides of LGBT youth, to not fire Tracy Morgan sends exactly the wrong message. To advocate violence against anyone is disgusting, but against our most vulnerable youth -- it crosses the line.
