He just is black, stop crying about it. How come you guys aren't on him for calling Curry fat? Are you guys prejudiced against fat people but sensitive about the word black?

i think the context of the original sentence implied that his being black was part of what was disturbing. while its not acceptable, its not racist/prejudice to be uncomfortable with overweight people. in a lot of cases (not all) their being overweight is due bad personal choices, his being black is due to his parents giving birth to him. if you must be intolerant, be intolerant of things people can control and change

The color of his skin (or his weight) does have nothing to do with this whatsoever. That's what makes the comment intolerable, irrelevant and ridiculous.

Those kinds of comments will be stopped right now - right?

Good, O.K., we can move on.

Being gay is no big deal, why people care who others choose to be with is still beyond me.

But if the allegations were true, its the humiliating of someone that would be disturbing.

I know what you all are saying, but don't get on him just cuz he said he was black. I don't think he was racist, I think it was just, well, imagine a 7 foot, fat, black gay guy. Disturbing.

Why is it disturbing? That's the question.

What's disturbing is humiliating people and treating them like the allegations say.

If someone's sexual orientation, color, weight or height is the root of the disturbance, you might want to look elsewhere for the problem.

Yea I guess the problem is with me. Cuz for real, if a 7 foot, fat, black, gay guy was coming at me with his [expletive] out, I would be horrified. Disturbed.

Not gonna try to be politically correct either, I just don't like gay [expletive]. Hope he's not homo, but oh well if he is. He sucks either way.

Well, Eddie Curry is really fat and black, I was just describing him...

Let's just say the very mental image of a guy like Eddie Curry, being like 800 lbs. (he even popped a training ball like it was a balloon) darker than a tar pit appears in front of you naked... Then he is like, "Heyyyy boy... wanna touch it? ;)"... I would either vomit or shoot him on sight...

I'm sorry, but that is worse than watching a horrible porn video...

It's not a race issue.

Besides, I smell BS in this article... Eddie Curry may be dumbass on the court, but he is not that stupid... I mean antics like these and he has a huge salary... That's spells Kobe rape case 2.0... I don't think he is gay either (not that there's anything wrong with it)...

But once again, all that would prove is that Eddy Curry and Malik Rose were interested in women, NOT that they aren't gay.


Actually, if you're interested in women you're bisexual at most. So it proves you're not gay.

Touche. Finally someone else in this thread who saw the point I was trying to make. I simply fumbled over my own semantics.
