    that we've seen str8 folk flaunt their sexuality for years.
    Sounds suspiciously like homophobia to me"

    Fox News attacks Beyonce’s Super Bowl salute to Black Lives Matter: It’s not ‘wholesome’ or ‘decent’

    "hosts of Fox & Friends and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani accused Beyonce of not providing “wholesome” entertainment at Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 because her performance was a tribute to Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers."

    No matter how many times they are repeated on different sites, 17 posts out of a total of the millions who watched the SB and had the ability to post is HARDLY "a lot of people." The gay blogosphere was a little too quick to seize on so little here.

    As for the criticism of Beyond Me for promoting BLM, the [New?] Black Panthers, and Malcolm X, it's spot on. Glorifying criminals and those who coddle them is not a worthy cause, particularly in a sport that is riddled with lawlessness by its black players, not a few of whom have or soon will have criminal records of their own.

    Sorry to tell it like it is, but that's the way it is.

    Thinking? Oh come on!

    A Lot of People Are Angry All The Time. Easier than thinking or learning.

    Promote? Just like you can promote weather. Sorry Angry America. Homosexuality just is. Get over it.

    Why am I not surprised that homophobes and racists like the morons at Fox News are horrified by a pro-gay and pro-black halftime show?
    America's conservatives get more extreme and crazy every year...
    The Super Bowl had got to be the most mainstream event in our culture. If you're "shocked" by that, maybe it's time to take a good look in the mirror?

    The only ones angry here are all the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs. The rest of America didn't seem to have any problem with the Super Bowl 50 halftime show.

    I didn't watch the show. How were they promoting homosexuality? Giving tips on how to be a fashionable dresser? Demonstrated how to give a proper man on man blowjob? Rimming? Did a makeover? Handed out lube samples? Rainbow colored condoms?

    As homosexuality is becoming more and more accepted by mainstream society and homosexuals are afforded the same rights and privileges as their straight fellow citizens and the death knell is tolled on ancient prejudices there will be a backlash from those who feel all the strides the gay community has made to date somehow diminishes them and they feel threatened and paranoid that all is somehow an attack on them. Slowly most will come around and see that gay men and women pose no threat to them. The others will die off eventually.

    if it was promoting homosexuality, would the visuals not have been a heck of a lot better? Just watched it and it looked really low budget (as these things go).

    Although, Levi Stadium is about an hour south of San Francisco, the Silicon Valley neighborhood of San Jose has its own gayborhood, (St Leo) is about 15 min south of the stadium, downtown, most people, including myself, did not know about San Jose icon_eek.gif

    That stadium pic may have bright colours, but it's promoting preachy (notice the cross) not homosexuality!

    And sounding like a complete ignoramus in the process. Well I'm gonna "tell it like it is as well". You're an old, out of touch bigot, hopefully the rentboys you probably hire will screw some sense back in to you.

    Um, yeah, it was very rainbow-ish, those 'christians' used to pointing out satanic symbols naturally pick up rainbows



    There is an old dance track that matches the theme "believe in love"

    It's interesting how you were able to neatly delineate the groups in your first paragraph, but in your second paragraph you paint 3-5 entities with one broad brush.

    Even if it is a broad brush, it paints an accurate picture. My first paragraph was easy to write because all I had to do was count the number of posts, something the author a/o OP didn't do. If I've stated anything that's not a fact in either paragraph, you, NYRuinz,* and anyone else are certainly free to correct me.

    Getting back on topic, ANY display of Rainbows and Love ANYWHERE is bound to push the same Pavlovian response (aside from a swevre tactic here or there) from the Reich Wing PR hacks.

    dayumm saidGetting back on topic, ANY display of Rainbows and Love ANYWHERE is bound to push the same Pavlovian response (aside from a swevre tactic here or there) from the Reich Wing PR hacks.

    Yes, your mug shots are accurate and there certainly are bad players of all races.* BUT, proportionately, black players have led the list for a longer period of time, and with crimes of greater violence and criminality. Do the numbers if you doubt me.

    But, as you say, back on topic. If Sean Penn had "hosted" halftime and honored anyone like Beyond Me did the Panthers and BLM, I'd have objected equally as well. (Mexican drug lords seem to be his thing.) But that didn't happen, this did, and I continue to object to the glorification of criminality and irresponsible behavior, as much as I ask why so many law-abiding blacks themselves defend it. (If there's any analogy, perhaps it's to the "where are all the decent Muslims?" one.) Rainbows are an entirely different matter, but the connection was clear, and the best evidence of that is how many gays fell for it by defending Beyond Me's misplaced praise.

    "Proportionally," white players and owners and coaches have led the way in many vile and illicit things throughout the league's history. If you're against something in particular, you can fight it across the board instead of taking counts.

    Don't like professionally-paid athletes doing crimes? Fight against all of it, and don't wait for the league to integrate to worry about proportions. I'm not holding Ted Nugent responsible for "dealing with" the scofflaws above.

    Don't like crime in general? Fight against all of it, whether the criminal is looting a store, or assaulting people in the street, or striking his significant other, or shielding his or her crimes with a badge.

    We need not wait until a specific demographic that irks us is engaging in it, "proportionally" or otherwise, to suddenly have a problem with it.

    Law-abiding persons of color are in communities fighting crimes (white and blue collar) and keeping more from happening everywhere. This includes the many, many more upstanding persons of color currently in the NFL. And, yes, even entertainers like the one mentioned here.

    The fact that many members of civil society have long preferred to marginalize than to fight injustice, because color, are why agitator groups like Black Panthers (the miniscule new and the glorified old) have formed in the first place. #AllLivesCantMatter if BL don't M. BLM today, and Black Panthers then, are reminders that, unfortunately, they have not. Peaceful, muted, displays are nice, too. But sometimes, as we all know here, you have to ACT UP!, if you will, to get the attention you need for meaningful change.

    We never get to statements like "Believe in Love" (thank you Coldplay and company) if we begin with a conceptual premise that suggests certain races are statistically less capable of it.
