I love Laveranues Coles. He was so brave to go public with that story, my heart aches for him. And he always looks so sensitive. You can tell the players really like him. Maybe he will go to come Dallas, we need some good players who aren't hoodlums.

I can't believe another player would make a remark like that to him just because he won a game.

Wait. Yes I can. sad sad sad

BROTHER COLES IS AN AMAZING, SHINING EXAMPLE OF MANHOOD AND STRENGTH.

AFTER HIS MOTHER NEVER SPOKE A SINGLE WORD TO HIM ABOUT HER HUSBAND'S MOLESTATION AND RAPE FOR SEVERAL YEARS, HE WENT ON OPRAH AND FACED IT ALL LIKE A REAL MAN!

HIS BOLD MOVE RIGHT HERE IS THE SAME THING...A REAL MAN, DARING TO STEP OUT AND GET WHAT HE'S WORTH! IT WILL COME BACK TO HIM 1000 FOLD!

I AM PROUD OF LAVERNEUS COLES, INDEED!

Thank you RevKev!
Lavarneus is so courageous, such a role model and an inspiration. It took so much heart for him to put himself out there. And what was up with the mother never saying anything to him about what happened?

When I saw this brother on Oprah, his story broke my heart. His eyes looked so sad. I wish him all the best. He deserves some happiness. I pray for all of my brothers that have had to find their way after experiencing this particular trauma.

Thank you RevKev and Freelo...


This gorgeous young man always loosk so sad and vulnerable, even when he smiles. He has been hurt so much and chosen to try to help others... I wish him the very best and pray for his success and happiness.

I wonder if he likes men as a result of his unfortunate abuse?? He is hella sexy!! I wish him the best in whatever he does. I hope he finds a nice "mate" that will treat him right. And not a gold digger.

A couple of years ago I was on another black gay website and they had a headline "football player comes out on Oprah" and they showed stills of Laverneous on Oprah. It made me so mad I sent them an e-mail telling them that sexual abuse not the same as sexual orientation. We could be so ignorant! I hope that brother has a strong support system.

Laveranues Coles, a real quiet NFL
player and real person of courage and integrity, has let his actions
speak with much more eloquence and power, personally, publicly and professionally, than most athletes in professional sports, not as a 'role model,' but as a REAL man and adult for men, women and children, in addressing being sexually violated in his own life.

His veracity of being sexually
violated by a parent breaks the silence of incest both in families
and institutions, openly putting real care and character above his
career. Now, that's a HERO!

Being violated in two Catholic seminaries, with cover-ups of such
crimes and whistleblowers normally
getting only torturous silence, I view Laveranues Coles as truly a
MVP in the NFL and in Life.

Rather than being seen as only a
'victim' or a 'survivor,' I see
and admire Laveranues Coles, like myself, trying to BE a 'violated revivor,' setting a standard and an example for self-empowerment,
while supporting Justice for all
persons, subjected to sexual crimes, social stigma and society's silence.

I pray my brother, Lavernues, has a long, happy and prosperous Life,
where he IS finding himself!
