Anderson Cooper on “racism against gay people.”

“Anderson Cooper turns a Dallas TV personality’s words against Michael Sam’s on-air kiss right back at her.” (cnn.com)

My man: witty, acerbic, funny, moving, succinct:

“If you happen to be playing predictable excuse-laden intolerance bingo at home, get ready to mark some boxes, folks.”


“Amy Kushnir stormed off the set during a debate on whether it was appropriate to air the Michael Sam kiss on television.”

Relephant rebuttal:

Luckily, context: “And that’s why nobody watches that show. Most Dallasites watch ch.8 ABC with news anchor Dale Hansen.”
