One Remark

  1. I wish you had not posted the comment from Ellen Degeneres. I respect her for everything that she’s done, but not a month ago she was standing by Kevin Hart – a man who said he would violently attack his own son if he thought his son was gay – and told him to ignore the “haters”. Jussie was violently attacked, and I am not going to politicize it or inject my own personal anger into it, but I don’t think it is appropriate to include that tweet from Ellen. If we’re not allowed to call out the haters – with no quotations or excuses – then attacks like this will continue, as they have been throughout history, and the sympathy for the victims will come across as bitter as ashes. The people who attacked Jussie are the same type of people that laughed when Kevin Hart joked about physically abusing his son if he even suspected his son was gay. This is not acceptable. Sorry, you know I’ve been an infrequent commenter on your blog for years, and I think the world of you. But I wouldn’t have included the tweet from Ellen.
