Charles Barkley on Jason Collins, tolerance and the unfair crucifixion of opposing opinions
[jwplayer config="Auto-Play" mediaid="38507"]
I couldn’t agree more with everything said by Barkley in this video including his opinion that people, like Chris Broussard, should be allowed to voice their “unpopular” opinions that will be viewed as negative thoughts about Jason Collins and/or homosexuality and not be crucified for it.
I called Broussard’s comments on TV yesterday “WTF moment” but not because I completely disagree with his thoughts and beliefs but because I was shocked that he would say what he did on Disney owned ESPN at that specific moment.
Barkley stressed player acceptance and quoted Doc Rivers on how players will be more acceptable than the public and it’s obvious from most of the tweets from NBA players, as well as celebs to the President, that they are just fine with and happy for Collins. Now….I did forget to see if Tim Hardaway tweeted anything.
