And, remember, we need to vote Republicans because they're gonna bring us jobs. I guess writing an amendment banning same-sex marraige is a job for somebody.

@Synnerman: You really need to stop. This isn't about white, though I know the white racists are having field day. You can also check out some of the black sights on this topic if you want to see how much 'love' our people have for us. This is about a straight, black man telling the most vile 'jokes' possible. Really, this was more like a tirade from your drunk uncle at Thanksgiving than a comedy performance. There wasn't even an attempt at a joke in there. And, now he's apologizing. Please! I wish organizations (gay, black, feminist, muslim, jewish, etc.) would stop demanding apologies from bigots. They meant every word they said and I'd rather see my enemies laid bare than hiding in plain sight.

Thank you for this. This is heartening to read. It's always good to hear about straight, black people who realize that the civil rights struggle didn't end in the 60's can see the common humanity of gay people.

"How much do you want to bet this never makes trial?" Oh Rod, you're so cynical. LMAO Eddie Long said he still had some stones to throw and we all know that Daddy Long likes to get his rocks off, I mean, throw stones, I mean...anyway... @Trey: I hear what you're saying, but Settling IS a win for Eddie Long. The more lurid aspects of the case will remain hidden, the culpability of not only Eddie Long, but the church's inner circle won't be further exposed. The congregation will welcome him back with open arms, blame whatever transgressions might have occurred on Satan and Demons. Seriously. Have you never heard the supersticious nonsense many black church folk mumble on the regular? It's like we're living in medieval Europe. Black church folks are some of the stupidest people you'll ever meet. It's a willful stupidity, mind you. They can have a PhD. and in Atlanta, there's a good chance they do, but when they enter church they leave their brains in their car trunks. They worship their pastors more than Christ. Eddie Long is probably hoping Februaryn just hurry up and come so he can get this troublesome thing out of the way. That way he can plan a getaway the DR or maybe Jamaica. The do have some nice nude beaches in Negril and some 'friendly' locale$ who walk the beach, and most importantly, have no standing in American courts.

@ The alleged 'Anointed': Shut The Hell Up! Pray for yourself so that God may lift the scales from your eyes and enlighten your stupidity. Yeah, this is the first time we've heard of a Catholic Priest engaged in criminal behavior. Nope, never happened before. Hell, he was trying to rub out the victim because he had brought to light the priest's prior criminal behavior. The Catholic Church ought to be apologizing to the victims, congregants and innocent priests who've had the endure the shame of the church's evil conduct.

I have no idea regarding Shani's sexuality, but so what if he ends up with a white partner? He's an ice speed skater so that's who he's probably going to be predominantly around. Most of us choose our partners from those we regularly come in contact with. Besides, black people and black men in particular, who buck the tide of 'acceptable' black behavior, speech,dress and past-times are put through the ringer. Many of those most upset that he might end with a white partner would be first to dismiss him as "Soft, White-washed, bougie, etc" if he tried to talk to them. Then, they're mad when he ends up with someone who will have him as he is.

While this is extremely hopeful news, it's not very realistic in the short term anyway. The pills are prohibitively expensive- $35 a pill. No insurance is going to pick up the tab for that when you can get the same results by wearing a condom. They don't even want to pay for female contraceptive pills. Plus, these pills can have some grave side-effects. In the meantime, wrap it up and get tested, for HIV and other STDs, which make HIV transmission more likely. Hopefully, this will lead to further research and a safer, cheaper pill in the future.

Didn't realize he was that old. He looks amazing. Black really doesn't crack.

$100 Million dollars! Yikes!! I think I'd kill myself. It seems like there's a story like this weekly, with only the name of the broke athlete changed. I don't think it's really the responsiblity of the NBA/NFL to teach these athletes how to manage their money. It would be nice if they did, but it's not going to happen. These are grown men, afterall. Do you want your boss telling you how to spend your paycheck? Clearly, they're not to get good advice from their friends and family since these two groups always seem to be the major reason these guys are going broke in the first place. To top it off, half of these guys are so arrogant, obnoxious and ghetto themselves, even if a more senior player tried to school them, they wouldn't listen anyway. It makes it hard to feel sorry for them in the end.

I can't give enough love and admiration to Mr. O'Brien and Kudos to the T&T media for allowing him to persuasively state his case and not being part of the problem. Jamaica, are you listening?

I pray it was just a case of a starstruck fan meeting his hero, 'cause sexing Lil Wayne, EWWWWWW...he looks like he needs a flea bath and God knows if pieces of last year's Thanksgiving dinner aren't still stuck in that grill.

This is a positive development as the rabid Christian-Right has basically used the military as captive audience for recruits. It's frightening how the extreme right wing churches have wormed their way into the military. Let them leave, PLEASE!!! One more reason of a thousand to hate religion.

@ Rob: Negro Please! I don't need the white man to tell me that Tyler Perry is hack. My black eyes, black ears and black brain informs me everytime I see any of his sophmoric 'films'. Sorry, I don't grade on a curve and there is no affirmative action points just because he's black.

Great points all. Yeah, the story is a little weird. I've seen Raging Stallion Films and even know someone who's worked for them and they don't do bareback. As others have pointed out, I doubt that Austin Wilde is having all of his tricks do a mouth swab and waiting 20 minutes for the OraSure to come back negative before he gets down. What's the difference between that and a porn set? I also doubt that most porn performers got HIV on a porn film. They were probably already infected when they got there. I've known more than a few people who didn't get infected from an anonymous trick, but from their 'trusted' partners who were doing everyone else without a condom. This reminds me that I'm due for a test myself. Off to Whitman-Walker tomorrow. Also, not only should sexually active gay men be regularly tested (twice a year) for HIV, we should be tested for other STDs as well. This is particularly true for black gay men. STD rates are extremely high in the black community in general and being infected with herpes, gonorrhea, syphillis, etc. dramtically increases your risk of contracting HIV. You can be infected with multiple STDs and never know it show any symptoms. This is one of the many reason for sky high black HIV rates. Get tested today. I know it's nerve racking. I worry and have diarrhea every time even when I haven't had sex in months, but it's a necessity. PLEASE GET TESTED!

I felt for her the first time, but this is ridiculous now. $50 Million. If you went bancrupt once, why are you shopping at Tiffany's and staying at the Four Seasons? Motel 6 and TJ Maxx from now on.

This is so horrible that it sounds more like 'Saw' movie than reality. Just put them away for a hundred years. @Tony: I wouldn't be surprised if they learned to be cruel at those parents' hands. Abuse, like a lethal virus, tends to replicate itself. I've read reports that the 17 year old was a member of this gang and they found out/suspected he was gay. That's what precipitated this. Not sure if this is true? Anyone in NYC know?

What a horrible way to die and those poor children...Gives me pause when I start complaining about my life. I hope some clues emerge about who did this.

Miss Ross is not happy *cue thunder and lightning outside window* I'm just joking y'all. Stop the typing. Never really cared for Faith Evans' singing. She can sing and all, just don't care for her voice or her PuffyStealEverySongFromThe80s songs, but maybe she can pull this off. Can't be any worse than Jennifer Hudson being cast as Winnie Mandela. WTF is that about?

This was truly compelling. He articulated everything that's wrong with this situation. It's even more damning for Eddie Long, who still can't categorically deny the charges. I wonder how long it will take for this flock of sheep to wake up? What am I saying? They never will.

Many of the prior comments hit the nail on the head. People don't vote for candidates they don't like, damn any objective qualifications. Remember, "I wanna have a beer with him." George Bush? I'm not endorsing this view, just stating it. Fenty could have salvaged this months ago, but the Washington Post analysis is on point. He was almost childish in his stubborness and unwillingness to put on the charm and change his personal style even when there was ample evidence that it was becoming toxic to him. This is not about his handling of the city. Yes, many people have issues with certain decisions, but polls showed that the majority of the citizens thought the city was heading in the right direction, but many of these people still wouldn't vote for him and had a great deal of personal enmity toward the mayor. I don't know what's going to go on with school reform now. Michelle Rhee made some misteps with her handling of the teachers, but it's still better than the status quo, which was basically, kids not learning a damn thing, being dead last in everything and teachers being completely unaccountable. And let's not pretend that a lot of the heat Michelle Rhee took was because she was Korean. Yes, black folks will sit back while other black folks run the school system in the ground (But send their kids to private schools). DC is racial like that. Is Gray going to cave in to the teachers union now? I'm wishing Vincent Gray well and hope he can resist the powers-that-be which are even now lining up at his door with their hands open.

Looks good. Unlike most here, I'm unfamiliar with the source material so I will judge the film on its own merits. As Isis said, it's a damn shame how little work there is for black actresses in Hollywood. Look at all that underused-talent on the screen, but Jennifer Aniston can put out another piece of box-office poison ever six months.

Wow! With that rap sheet, what exactly would disqualify you from being a police officer in Providence? Many places won't even hire you with bad credit. I hope this young woman sues the hell out of the city.

What's funny is that the Pastor and the religious nuts in Afghanistan are two sides of the same coin, but neither can recognize this. It's also interesting to note the dead silence of the Republican party on this issue. All of a sudden, General Patreus doesn't know anything and damn the troops if Anti-Muslim bigotry and help the GOP in November.

For Mayweather, remember, the man gets punched in the head for a living. @ Greg G: <> Yes, we are. No one hate themselves like black gay men. We will crawl naked over glass to defend the bigotry and hate of black straight people ever day of the week. We value our lives even less than they do.

This is sad and very disturbing. I don't have much more to say. I think Former COGIC put it well. As usual, you're commentary is on point.
