    Joakim Noah was just fined 50,000 for using a anti gay slur as was Kobe Bryant which u can say is now on par with anti semitic comments. So my question is where does the anti comments end or begin why must we not tolerate anti gay or semitic comments but calling a Muslim a terrorist, a black a n****r , a obese person fat, a white person a cracker, a Hispanic a spic or any illegal a immigrant barely hit the radar? What makes one worse than the other?Can we not disagree with anyones preference? Should we accept all racists,bigots,Nazis,communists,leftists,rightists? Where does it end and begin?

    If either of those "role models" had made any of the other prejudicial comments they probably would have been fined for those as well.
    Bigotry, despite our best efforts, is alive, well, and fomenting.
    Sorry to say.
    Good when blatant examples get busted, tho! smile

      Great point mighty mom but athletes or about as good a role model as anyone in any bar drunk on alcohol and adrenaline is about the samething

        Agreed. That's why I put "role model" in quotation marks.
        Kobe Bryant is a great basketball player.
        Model of good behavior (both on and off the court).
        Not so much....
