    Why does the black community always get free passes for their ignorant homophobia? Yes he did mean what he said. He thinks being gay or bisexual is not being a real man, which is common in the ghetto.

    Andy, will you please leave Kordell alone. You know he’s very sensitive, and he cries at the drop of a hat.

    I’m going to have a Chris Crocker moment here, “LEAVE KORDELL ALONE!!!!!”

    He has only exposed himself as being confused about sexuality and sexual orientation (in general and by extention, his own).

    A lot of very confused and not-very-bright men (he’s obviously in that category) convince themselves in their own heads of ideas like “I like to have sex with men more than women, but I have a no-kissing rule, I’m tall and I can win arm wrestles, so I ain’t no gay.”

    And being desperately scared of one’s own homosexuality can be one of the biggest motivators to maintain one’s own confusion.

    A free pass? On this blog? I don’t think so. But YOU b.tchy Martin, will not get a free pass on your ignorant racism. Not while I’m around.

    @ “EBONICS R BACK! I missed them so”

    And pompous pansies are back, WAVIN’ DAVE. I haven’t missed them so.

    He’s putting on the stupidity to seem ‘all man’. He was never that stupid on the show and isn’t that ghetto either but I’ve noticed culturally working class men try to instill their masculinity by acting and speaking more hyperbolic and poor then they are.

    It’s noticed more with ethnic minorities like Blacks and Hispanics because their cultures are so loud but it’s a working class thing across the colour lines.

    Even Obama engages in “code switching” when he wants to project more blackness. I once heard him speak in a black church and I couldn’t believe what an act he put on from the pulpit.

    His ex-wife is the one who already stated that he was less than 100% man in the bedroom. Comparing himself to gay men to show he’s “100%” anything isn’t necessary or validating since it would still leave something that was wrong. Explain what you think was the issue instead of attempting to bring down other 100% men so you can get to your own “100%”. That he may have been gay was just his wife’s opinion on the subject after all.

    While I dislike the homophobia displayed by Kordell… Why is it OK to associate a black man with “the ghetto”?

  10. Chaz says

    Okay. Let me say that in my opinion, men from lower-income backgrounds and racial minorities have more of a problem with gays and being perceived as less than a total heterosexual than guys from more privileged backgrounds. it has to do with insecurity and the valuing of brute manhood and physical power in the absence of other forms of power: political, intellectual, social.

    Is that racist?

  11. Chaz says

    And they don’t get free passes. Constant efforts are being made by gay people and woman inside the black community to combat the vain machismo that men like this represent. But it’s hard. These men cling to their childish masculinity and misogyny because it’s virtually all they have, in the same way that other disenfranchised and demoralized men cling to Allah: it’s a source of pride in a world of degradation.

    @MARTIN

    Honey, it’s very common among white trash in trailers parks everywhere to think being gay or bisexual is not being a “real man”.

    Thanks for your stupid, racist comments.

    This describes my father and his friends in rural Michigan. They hated education, and would purposely dumb their speech down to appear less educated. They equated education to leaving the small town.

  14. Derrick from Philly says

    The irony of calling Kordell Stewart a homophobe is that his sexuality and “manhood” were questioned when he was playing for the Pittsburg Steeelers. He was emotional and often…well, started crying. And for that he was ridiculed.

    As for his ability with standard English. Don’t you b.tches be so confident about your own skills. I know that I’m not always proficient in English grammar and usage, but some of you are too f.cking sure of yourselves. It would be like me making fun of southern White folks who didn’t go far in school. Or some White folks from ethnic neighborhoods in northen urban areas. Why would I do that? It would make me look like a pompous faggot (which I am at times, but not to make fun of those with less formal education). For instance I would never make fun of Loretta Lynn’s speaking ability. What’s the f.cking point?

    Making fun of others with less formal education makes some of you feel so superior, doesn’t it?

  15. Frankly says

    I don’t know who this person is – or whether or not he is gay. However, from his quote I can see that he’s certainly not an effective communicator and has a poor grasp of the English language.

    “No. No. I’m not on the down low. I’m a 100% man! I don’t do no homophobic. I don’t do no none of that. There’s nothing about no dude that I see.”

  16. Kelly says

    Why do some Gays speak differently in all Gay environments than they do in straight environments? Why do some bilingual people speak their native language at home with family and English at work?

  17. YSOSERIOUS says

    I don’t think this type of rhetoric (claiming someone can be identified as non-gay because they’re ‘a real man’) should be allowed to stand. It is misogynistic and homophobic. I don’t care what your cultural background is (saying he should get a break because he’s black is – in truth – racist). He needs someone to explain things to him. He needs education.

    I don’t think he’s stupid, I see him as ignorant. And before anyone jumps down my throat about that word, it is the correct word to use. Ignorance can be corrected with education, stupidity is by definition saying the person cannot be educated.

    Saddest part of this is, he worked with LGBT folks while in the NFL. They probably weren’t out to him. That was their failing. We all need to address homophobia and educate those around us as often as possible.

    @Derrick

    I’m black and too many black people in America speak English poorly and far too often they are celebrities ! I never see a white person who is a celebrity speak English like this.

  19. Dave says

    The folks who think that gay men aren’t real men are homophobes like this goon and the folks who call gay people “LGBT” and assert that gay men are linked in a defining way to transsexuals and people with gender identity issues. Homophobic attitudes go hand in hand with the notion that LGB is inherently linked with T.

  20. Rowan says

    AL, read what I said. The issue is why blacks always feel they should dumb down? I too as a black person have been called names by other black people because I am well spoken. Why? Because it meant I wasn’t ‘real’ and all that utter BS. Of course I countered to him that knew more about black history then probably all his family, friends and acquaintances, so he should STFU.

    All of a sudden…his dialect wasn’t so….’street’.

    Psst.

  21. Rick says

    “I like how they think being gay or bisexual is not being a real man”

    Which, of course, they have in common with “gender non-conformists”, trans people, and effeminate gay men, in general.

    Ironic, huh?

  22. Joseph says

    This is no surprise. He is an idiot. This is the same guy that thinks “Being a man” is locking out his wife if she isn’t home by the time he set for her. But I will say, with how many rumors are going around about him I would’t be surprised if he didn’t end up like Kevin Terry.

  23. Boogey Jenkins says

    You know why ghetto trash is always afraid of the gay? Because deep down they know that own of their own banged a monkey way back in africa and brought on the HIV curse. Monkey See, Monkey Do. No Race-O, yo.
