So, help me understand... how does one say to another person what Joakim said to fan WITHOUT meaning any disrespect? It's mind-boggling.

All right, since my comment was censored on Towleroad I'll make it here.

Last week on Rod McCollum's Blog it was reported that a sentence was given for one of the murderers of 4 Black Gay teenagers in Newark, New Jersey. Very few of the White Gay blogs felt these anti-Gay torture murders were worthy of continued coverage. And these murders were just as horrific as the torture murders of Matthew Shepard and Brandon Teena....but obviously not very important to White Gays.

But this bullshit from a bullshitting NBA jock is important.

Some of us Black Gays have been naive about the level of racism among White Gays. I guess I'm one....but then, a fifty-somethin' year old queen like me has learned not to trust no goddamn body--not a racist cracka' fag, and not a vicious geetchie queen either.


....stay to myself, child.

When will they learn?

@ Derick:

What happened at Towleroad? They cut your comment?

Oh and you ain't nevah lied about the white gay racism. It is full on mode each and every time a black athlete or public figure makes a homophobic commment. They want to paint all blacks as homophobic. White Republicans in Minnesota are sending marriage amendments to the ballots and not so much anger ... and definitely not accusing all "white" people of being homophobic.

And the white gay blogs NEVER covered the Newark story iirc. Never.

@Derrick: Well, don't go to queerty.com. So far, they are forgiving Noah because he is so "hot."

And, I love what you said about gay racism. Truth is truth! By the way, is it naivety by some of us or straight up denial?

@Steve B

I assume Noah was saying he meant no disrespect to the GLBT community. Clearly he meant something towards the person he was shouting at.

@Derrick. Co-sign! Ive called them on it at Outsports as well. It is usually viewed as their opportunity to drop the "N" word, you know, to make a point. Not saying black athletes shouldn't be held accountable for their homophobia though.

And as far as him being excused for being "hot"..uh whatever. Light skinned/mixed doesn't always equal hot.

Chitown Kev

Yeah, I've seen those comments about Noah and for the most part folks seem to be going for the hair as opposed to the fact that he's black and reaching for the n-word.

Of course they may have fond memories of his father (who was also a bit of a hothead).

Oh, and Derrick from Philly, youy are very correct

Honut Sinti

@ Derrick. Snap true!

Also, "geetchie", ah, the word takes me back to my homeland

Meh, I don't care too much about these fools spouting faggot remakrs because it's no longer that shocking or unexpected. It feels more like a unwritten policy.

As for the notion about Black people being the most raging homophobes, let me ask you this: If someone does strongly believe in that, what good does it does for them dwell on the subject over and over and over again. It's becoming cliched and rather predictable.

Noah is alright but most Latin Papis I've seen, who are usually of the mixed variant, are hotter than this dude.

Maybe, just maybe there should be some sort of penalty for fans who taunt players to the degree this “fan” did.
Then to act applaud that Noah said something back to him was laughable.
Just because you buy a ticket to a game should not mean you then have carte blanche to do and say whatever you want to players.
p.s. It's just STUPID to judge rightness or wrongness on "Cute"

Greg G

Of course Azzyet. It's the fans "fault" for "taunting" and provoking a player. ROFL

Do you say that when gays are gay bashed? Was it their fault too? Or only when straight multi-millionaire sports players throw that word around?

How about: The NBA contract prohibits players from using verbal slurs while they're playing? Joakim is getting $7M a year. I'm sure many people are calling him names, that's sports. It's not what people say to you, it's how you respond.

SMH @ the fan's "fault". And of course it's from someone whose name I've never seen before, as usual to defend some straight millionaire brotha who uses homophobic language. Typical in our community.
