Lord, I pray right now that you would show me the way to deal with the vulgar ignorance and purposeful arrogance of my brothers in the world of celebrity.

So many, hurled into stardom and whirled by fame, open their mouths and their youth, their lack, their sheltered and shamed lives, comes dripping from their lips. Please keep these brothers, who want the fame of being celebrated but not the responsibility of being elevated and who run from the work of being a role model but feel that only a model can fill the role of wife in their life.

Please Lord, keep them, with every slip of the tongue, that reveals that they needed the education as much as they wanted the money and that something has to be done to insure that one doesn't supercede the other because nothing is worse than that a rich fool with no support system to help him become wealthy.

Yet again, another brother has tried to make himself feel better by reducing someone to a slur. I wonder how freely nigger flows in the locker room and how they handle it when a brother of another color uses the same word that they say is about love and friendship. I am praying that someone shows this cat the light because darkness is only bringing fines and foolishness and showing all of his flaws. I pray for him because I'm flawed too but I try to leave mine at the altar and not on public airwaves, because thankfully, I was raised better, I know better and my intention is always to do better.

I pray that this brother gets that same message, even if it has to come through being sat down so that he can finally look up...BECAUSE THIS IS ENOUGH!

STUPID IS NOT EXCUSE FOR STEREOTYPES and "I DIDN'T MEAN ANY HARM" is no longer an acceptable response for an athlete who hits and sacks and defends on purpose.

Shame on you Larry Johnson, for trying to play dumb instead of play well!

Derrick from Philly

Yes, he must be punished for his outward show of bigotry--that's the price you pay as a public personality/celebrity who can't control your hate. But the unleashing of racial hatred by some white gays over this is unexcusable. Any excuse to use the "n-word".

Coretta Scott King, Rev. Joseph Lowery, Bishop Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Charles Barkley, Julien Bond, Governors Patterson & Patrick, almost ALL black mayors, almost the entire Black Congressional Caucus, etc--ALL supportive of gay people's civil rights, they ALL disappear, and the only straight black voices heard are that of Larry Johnson and Buju...whatever the hell his name.

I still refuse to believe that most white gays are racist bigots. There's still so much evidence to the contrary, but the ones who are are sickening b..tches.

Faison

Derrick, I saw those comments at Towelroad. I cannot believe how quickly their hoods came off. Last time I checked Pat Robertson, the Mormons and the Republicans were white but they never say all white people are homophobic.

Johnson is pathetic and deserves to be fined or suspended. We're the first to say that. Those Towleroad comments were outrageous.

ToddyEnglish

Honestly, don't know who he is nor do I care. That is the modous operandi of most jocks. Blah, blah, and blah.

Ravenback

All he needs is some meat up the butt. That will straighten him out.

I really don't have any more to say about him. So tired of these homophobic jerks.

Crown Jewelz

Wow... Even the "straights" know what Christopher Street is? I'm a native New Yorker, and I've NEVER heard any guy referred to as a "Christopher Street boy".

Maybe there's a little bit of sexual suppression hiding under Larry Johnson's uniform.

Whatuthink

he looks like cute faggot to me.

Paul561

AMEN, REVKEV!!!!!!

Nathan James

D*mn...Crown Jewelz beat me to it...I also picked up on Johnson's reference to "christopher Street"...I'm gonna have to look for Lary on the 1 train late at night, traveling to Christopher Sreet incognito...lol!

I think, once again, "the lady doth protest too much". If Johnson knows about Christopher Street, perhaps it's because he's spent some time walking to and from the Pier for some "touch" football...but I digress. (snicker)

The Truth

I'm not from the east coast...what or who is Christopher Street?

Nathan James

@The Truth: Christopher Street is in the heart of NYC's famous (and very gay) Greenwich Village section of Manhattan. It runs roughly from Sixth Avenue down to the (perennial gay hang out spot)Pier on the West Side Highway. Christopher Street was the site of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion that began the modern gay-rights movement, and it has been a Mecca for gays and lesbians in and around NYC since then.

Christopher Street boasts fine dining, lots of shops ranging from gay adult stores to fashion boutiques, and wonderful historic homes, including those of Tennessee Williams and James Baldwin. The thoroughfare is also the end point for the biggest LGBT parade in the world, the annual NYC Heritage Of Pride March. Hope this helps!

New Yorker

He sounds like an ignorant BANJEE BOY to me (lol..yall remember that word from back in the day . . .)Being from New York (and basically cutting 9th and 10th grade of High School way back in the day just to tramp up and down Christopher Street) Christopher street was the place for us to let it all hang out. While riding the train back into the deep south bronx, I've never been called (nor heard anyone ever referred to) as "Christopher Street Boy". Hmmmmmm. Where do these dummies come up with their lingo anyway. Christopher street is also a train station name for the PATH Train coming from New Jersey and the 1 and 9 train which means hetero's as well as homo's alike go up and down the street not caring what sexual preference the person next to them practices.

Crown Jewelz

Hi five @ Nathan & New Yorker.

The Truth

Thanks Nathan and New Yorker!

DC

Lets see...beating his girlfriend (probably for not being a DUDE) and to make him feel better about his masculinity. And referencing known gay hangouts.

Umm yeah. DL all the way with those DSL's. It's time to come out now Larry.

elg

Maybe the NFL will do the right thing and get rid of him. One can only hope.

kayman

Boys, I do know the real 'tea' about Mr. Johnson and amongst those who know the NFL gossip he is repressed bisexual. His little violent episodes on the females because they called him out on his sexuality. So after seeing his name pop up for calling somebody a "faggot" is really no surprise to me.

Mr. Johnson's closet is getting more and more transparent as time goes by...

James M

Poor guy... he must be mad that the guy he's been messing with don't want his unknown ass anymore. The guy must have told him that and he got pissed. Its okay dude, there are other men out there....

DJ

As Rod always says, and Shakespeare before him... "Methinks the lady doth protest too much"

worst_1_yet

Been following LJ for years. A troubled soul, he is. Hard as hell on the outside, but no one knows what's on the inside. Issues with women in the past, and now gays.

The NY "Christoper Street" reference is a bit telling though. Not something a lot of "straight" guys would say. Sounds like he might've been there once or twice.

Brandon T

Larry Johnson, I have this to say to you, who gives a F!@# about what you gotta say? In fact, the reason why he's mad is because he's not getting enough "balls" in his hands! LOL! Yeah you're the big faggot now! I mean c'mon, do you really think that someone may want your unknown country coon azz? No! In fact, you probably was the ugly red headed step child growing up. Yeah I bet you feel loved! Hahahahahahaaaaaa!!

Jim

I am not a native New Yorker (although I can remember being on Christopher Street and West Street a couple of times :-)), but I surely did love this jam in 1983.

I would not contradict Nathan James and Crown Jewelz, but if you listen at about 1:11 or so, you will certainly hear that Christopher Street is/was no hidden secret to the folks of the city of New York.

“Where all the boys go . . .”

Patrick

The following statement was just released about this player.

Haley spoke briefly about Johnson’s situation at his post-practice press conference Tuesday but offered very few details.

At 12:35 p.m., the Chiefs put the following statement up on their web site: “The Kansas City Chiefs and the National Football League are continuing to investigate the alleged comments made by Larry Johnson. Until that review is complete, the Chiefs have instructed Larry to refrain from practicing with the Chiefs or participating in other team activities. A decision regarding Larry’s status will be made once the investigation has concluded.”

Patrick

The Chiefs and the NFL are conducting a joint investigation into Johnson’s actions and will probably take a few more days to reach a decision.

For his part, Johnson did issue an apology through his agent to the Kansas City Star. The entire text said,

“First of all, I want to apologize to the fans of the Kansas City Chiefs and the rest of the NFL, Commissioner Goodell, the Chiefs organization, Coach Todd Haley, his staff, and my teammates for the words I used yesterday. I regret my actions. The words were used by me in frustration, and they were not appropriate. I did not intend to offend anyone, but that is no excuse for what I said.

“I also want to apologize to all the kids who view athletes as role models. I was not a good role model yesterday and hopefully I can become a better role model. We all make mistakes, and the challenge is to learn from them. I will do my best to learn from this one as I move toward becoming a better person, teammate, and member of the Kansas City Chiefs team and community.”

Stay tuned, folks. This could get dicey.
