To The Editor,
As always, Rev. Irene Monroe’s article scored a solid bulls-eye. Her column on Tim Hardaway’s homophobic "apology"―much like Tracy Morgan’s "apology"―reminded me of how the issue of basic civil rights can/should be addressed: i.e., Admiral Michael Mullen’s, the Joint Chief of Staff, testimony before a congressional hearing on 12/02/10. The decorated Admiral, when asked by Senator McCain about the repeal of "Don’t ask, don’t tell," stated that there would not be any problem at all―"troops who balk at change in the Gay service policy can find other work." When further pressed by Arizona’s McCain, Admiral Mullen insisted there would be ZERO problem―the "troops will obey orders―period." NBA players, boardroom executives, media and entertainment stars, U.S. Senators, etc., had better realize how UGLY hatred is, in any form...and distance themselves from it.
