NBA legend Charles Barkley is pro-gay and ain’t afraid to talk about it. This video was circulating around the Internet last week, but Charles has been very open about his support for the LGBT community AND gay marriage for awhile.
In his latest pro-gay message, he said….
“You know, people try to make it about black and white. He talked about equality for every man, every woman. We have a thing going on now — people discriminating against homosexuality in this country. I love the homosexual people. God bless the gay people. They are great people.”
Rod 2.0 has been reporting for a long time about our straight, black allies, so after some digging, he first came out in August 2006 for marriage equality saying: “I think if they want to get married, God bless them.” He took it further in 2008, saying….
“Every time I hear the word ‘conservative,’ it makes me sick to my stomach, because they’re really just fake Christians, as I call them. That’s all they are….I think they want to be judge and jury. Like, I’m for gay marriage. It’s none of my business if gay people want to get married.”
