    **Read my other democratic response thread on this http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3821043**

    So...this has been all the buzz lately, the openly gay footballer has been accepted by the rams (and I'm actually in Missouri right now). But, what seems to be the biggest buzz is him kissing his boyfriend.

    Now...this is a wonderful turning point and giant leap of good faith, yadda yadda. But...I know for all the threads out there that talk about why white guys do this or don't do that, or black men this and that...you have to kinda admit, this still puts the image out there that the most successful gay black men, end up dating White guys. And that only the most successful gay black men end up with White guys lol (cuz they ain't messin wit no broke niggas...ain't that right Kanye and Kim?).

    Maybe I'm reading into it too much, but I'm not particularly 'thrilled' with the whole propaganda going into it...Not saying anything about he should be with a Black guy, but it just seems like a hollow victory from a black gay person's point of view, and here's why I feel that way:

    The 1st openly gay, Black football player ends up dating a White guy. Now, how often do we see openly gay White TV sensations, dating Black guys/women? Anderson Cooper? Elen D, Rosie? Nope...Just saying, It would be even better if this fine ass hunk of man was openly coming out with another Black or dark-skinned Latino guy on his side. Again, not saying that's what he 'should' do, but I'm wondering though if his boyfriend wasn't White, would the media be jumping all over it? And would HE be as openly willing to show and publicize it?

    Because we all know, there's a lot of DL and people who secretly have a Black boyfriend, but where is the press release for that? Y'all get where I'm getting at? So...to me, seeing all the pics implies the White guy is some sort of 'driving force/motivator'. Not saying that's ALL it's about, but it APPEARS to evoke that feeling. I'm not saying they don't look good together, but would he not look just as good with another Black dude?

    Again, the point I'm making isn't about hating OR not accepting interracial relationships. Do not get me wrong. I'm in an interracial relationship right now, and he's living with me. That's not what I'm saying. What I am saying is, what if this was a Black on Black gay male couple? And if so, what's holding Black men back from revealing it, and the media releasing it, if it so exists?

    Another thing is this, when and where if ever, are the gay white tv/sports tycoons and personalities....such as Anderson Cooper, Ricky Martin, Andrew Christian, Ellen D and the original Rosie...ever risking it all and coming out with an interracial relationship with a gay black guy/woman? You never see it! But you see every time a black Tv personality come out (as in, the black person (magic Johnson's son, Wanda Sykes, now Micheal Sam) initiates the coming out and actually does it), it always has to be interracial for the media (and probably the Lgbt community) to publicize and seemingly embrace it?

    Well, I think it's a stepping stone because pro sports teams have never discussed openly gay players. People think it's an all straight arena. This shows that it's not.

    I was not surprise that his boyfriend would be a White Guy...but what people need to understand is that in his line of work, the Majority of people he gets to meet or interacts with are White apart from the players.

    I find the size difference funny, he looks like he could accidently break him lol. But, why should anyone care who someone is dating? I don't what race the person he is dating is, it's not my or anyone else's business.

    Most black athletes period tend to go for white spouses/girlfriends.

    I'm not shocked about this. Also think of it this way: how many other black men who were willing to even be in a semi-secret relationship with another man did he possibly have to his disposal? Even if there were some willing to fuck I doubt very many of them would be willing to be the one on the front of all the magazines right now. It can even be argued that having a boyfriend who was out for so long encouraged Michael to come out in the way he did.

    I can't take this thread seriously when the OP once suggested he probably wouldn't date a black man.

    I think they make a beautiful couple! Who wouldn't want to kiss either one of them? His bf is hot, and they look very happy! And Michael Sam could create a "defensive line(man)" around me any day! icon_smile.gif

    Can you imagine the riot that would ensue if you created a "White guys only" thread? There would be death threats! icon_eek.gif
