“What is gayism? Also, David Beckham is not the only athlete who poses without clothes on. I suggest you Google 'Tim Tebow shirtless' - he's posed for GQ exposing his sculpted abs and nice chest and all.”

“I hope that Huffington Post will allow a reasonable rebuttal to Ms. Nelson's opinion piece, which is clearly colored by her friendship with Mr. Martin and his wife. As a gay man who has strongly supported the movement for civil rights for African Americans since childhood, I hope that there can be more dialogue between the LGBT community, the black community, and with black LGBT Americans. Maybe this can begin with Roland's meeting with GLAAD.
I will say my own opinion is that Roland Martins behavior, on-air and on Twitter, has exhibited homophobia and or insensitivity to the LGBT community, and certainly his Tweets on Sunday fall into that pattern.
I also will say that, contrary to Ms. Nelson's apparent contention that Roland Martin's tweets on Subday amounted to his own personal behavior, not to be subject to sanction by his employer, the fact that he Tweets to 95,000 followers and is a major cultural figure DOES make it CNN's business and I am glad he was suspended, clearly after some consideration by CNN.”
