sportscasterThis speech from Dallas sports anchor Dale Hansen is fantastic on so many levels. He not only calls out the bigotry of those who aren’t “ready” for an openly gay NFL player, but also recites a litany of their hypocrisy, the crimes committed by NFL players in the past that people are somehow more “ready” for than a gay player. For instance:

“You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You’re the fourth guy taken in the NFL draft. You kill people while driving drunk? That guy’s welcome. Players caught in hotel rooms with illegal drugs and prostitutes? We know they’re welcome. Players accused of rape and pay the woman to go away? You lie to police, trying to cover up a murder? We’re comfortable with that. You love another man? Well, now you’ve gone too far!”

Preach, sir!
