Sir Charles Redeems Himself

Ever since I saw the 1993 NBA Finals where Charles Barkley got pwned by Jordan and whined about it, I couldn’t take him seriously. Just when I thought you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go and do this and TOTALLY REDEEM YOURSELF!

“First of all, every player has played with gay guys. It bothers me when I hear these reporters and jocks get on TV and say, ‘Oh, no guy can come out in a team sport. These guys would go crazy.’ First of all, quit telling me what I think. I’d rather have a gay guy who can play than a straight guy who can’t play.Any professional athlete who gets on TV or radio and says he never played with a gay guy is a stone-freakin’ idiot. I would even say the same thing in college. Every college player, every pro player in any sport has probably played with a gay person. … They always try to make it like jocks discriminate against gay people. I’ve been a big proponent of gay marriage for a long time, because as a black person, I can’t be in for any form of discrimination at all,” – Sir Charles Barkley.
