THE THINGS AMERICA PUTS AS THEIR PRIORITY


JasonColling_Obama-ImageShare6-Optimized
This morning President Obama answered questions at the White House press briefing, and made a point to discuss his pride and support for the NBA’s Jason Collins, who came out as gay yesterday. The President, who had finished the press conference, returned the podium to answer a reporter’s question on Collins and spoke at length about the NBA star and the impact on the LGBT equality movement.

“I told him I couldn’t be prouder of him,” said President Obama of a call with Collins yesterday.” “One of the extraordinary measures of progress that we’ve seen in this country has been the recognition that the LGBT community deserves full equality.”

In the 24 hours since Collins made the announcement via Sports Illustrated, he has received an outpouring of support from his colleagues in the NBA, celebrities, political leaders and fans.

Among the other prominent Americans who have taken to social media to express their support for Collinis were Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Ellen Degeneres, Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, Russell Simmons and Major League Baseball (MLB).

    What unuh expect of a man who, from his 1st election, targeted the LGBT community as a minority group all in the aim of getting their votes so he could win the election? He made promises, now he has to keep them.

    Lots of families struggling to make ends meet, no good jobs, and loads of other issues out there. Smh. The Gay men and lesbian community is as strong as ever. Why is it all we are hearing, is about how they are being discriminated against. Black people are still being disenfranchised on every level. Look pass the stars and see how many blacks struggling. Unions are being usurped by whites who only hire mostly their white friends and families. He said he would be a president of all the people, but judging by the things he is echoing, I am starting to wonder. Guess, like a lot of other leaders, he has gone out of touch with true reality. Probably all he has left, is to careen along with so called pop culture. Well he will score political points with a section of our society who has a lot to gain, because they will never be satisfied, it appears, until gays are in total control. I wonder where are our values are coming from these days. Surely not the bible that these hypocrites have no regards for anymore. The fear of God is lost in the wind of knowledge. Man’s ideas and philosophies are now the rules of our guide. I wonder how far down the road we will get before we totally destroy ourselves?

    See, I never voted for him so it is not news to me. ALL POLITRICKSTERS ARE THE SAME….EVENTUALLY! I just want to know why we are commending people that admit the have lived a lie, what happen to him pickney dem & the mental health of aaaaaall those women he has been intimate with. Why does no one talk about that? Remember in days of slavery it was black people with dry yeye dat sold slaves to the Europeans.

  • What’s good with that logo on dude’s left chest; is that a you know what pointing toward his mouth?

  • On a serious note, I am closer to the values of George Bush than I am to the values of Barack Obama–I have known this for a long time and it is for this reason why I don’t embrace Obama…

    This is straight Babylon and it was written; hence, I am not surprised… On that day, the man who opposes The Christ, will be know as the Anti-christ and I know where the great thinker in Barack Obama lands…
