Former NBA player Tim Hardaway isn't holding anything back when it comes to bigotry and hate. In a radio interview with a Miami radio station, Hardaway - a Heat guard - was asked about his views on gays and lesbians in sports after former NBA player John Amaechi came out.
"You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don't like it. It shouldn't be in the world or in the United States. First of all, I wouldn't want him on my team. And second of all, if he was on my team, I would really distance myself from him because, uh, I don't think that is right. I don't think he should be in the locker room while we are in the locker room. But stuff like that is going on and there's a lot of other people I hear that are like that and still in the closet and don't want to come out of the closet, but you know I just leave that alone."It just kills me when folks who have historically been discriminated against turn around and discriminate themselves. What a moron. Here's hoping he never has to go to a hairstylist or restaurant again. Maybe the stylist or server will hate bigots. Side of spit? Mistakenly buzz cut an upside down triangle on the back of his head?
