Gay NBA Player Jason Collins Presents His Jersey to Family of Slain Gay Student

Jason Collins

Jason Collins, the 35-year-old Brooklyn Nets bench rider who is noteworthy for who he has sex with, presented his jersey to the family of Matthew Shepherd last night. The significance of this is that Collins wore #98 on his jersey — the year that Shepherd, a Wyoming college student, was killed in 1998 because he was gay.

According to the NBA, Collins’ jersey was the #1 selling jersey this week. It’s doubtful that NBA jerseys were flying off the shelves this week prior to Collins signing his 10-day contract with the Nets, but facts like that don’t generate headlines like celebrating Collins’ homosexuality does.

Collins, who averaged 1.1 points during his last season in the NBA, bested his average by scoring 3 points in Brooklyn’s lopsided win against Denver.

”I got them a bucket,” the Brooklyn Nets’ center said, referring to Shepherd’s parents who drove up from Casper, Wyoming to attend the game. ”And of course, I had what, like three, four, five fouls. So, I did my usual fouls and I got them a bucket. And a free throw.”

There is no question that Collins is a subpar NBA player at best, but the levels that the media will go to portray Collins as a hero is interesting. The irony is that men who have sex with men (MSM) remains #1 in new HIV cases in the U.S. No other risk category even comes close, including black women.

But facts like these don’t generate headlines.

Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) represent approximately 2% of the United States population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV. Source

The majority of Collins’ media cheerleaders are male journalists who are probably gay or bisexual themselves.

The message this sends to kids is that it is okay to be a dismal failure in life as long as you’re a black male who is homosexual.

Not everyone is thrilled over the hype surrounding Collins’ sexual preference.

    JASON COLLINS is a TERRIBLE basketball player. He was on the celtics he was trash. I never heard this much about him when he was on my favorite team (celtics). Ok he is gay and plays basketball who cares!!!! This is taking away from the sport. Basketball is about talent not about sexuality

    I am all for gay rights but in another year or two the gay right wing is going to become another trivial group if they keep up with silly antics like this. If one you want a gay spokesperson get someone with a real story to tell not some under-par athlete who decided to use the gay card to save a fledgling career. He might as well be gay for pay cause that’s what hes essentially doing

    I don’t have any feelings about anyone either. People from last year still owe me money. Why money wasn’t collected up-front? I don’t know. The chick who crushes really hard on Honey Dip didn’t pay up. She probably thinks I’ve forgotten. Nope, gimme my money. :nana:

    I’m a Dawg, but since we don’t really have a presence in basketball, I guess I’ll let y’all have that chomping stuff.

    Matthew Sheppard’s brother look like his closet door hanging on the hinges too.

    Ironically, one of the dudes that killed Matthew was gay too. Or at least he felt that way at times and was “conflicted” about his sexuality (read: gay). That’s what made him go off.

    @Razz, even so, let these people be. If you gonna use their loss ‘for the cause’ then the cause should handle their transportation. i hope they at least offered them overnight accommodations…

    :cell: ‘uh yeah, we wanna honor y’all. how long y’all think it’ll take you to drive over here?’

    Black QBs have been overly CRITICIZED. Not praised. :nono: Never praised. Russel “Morris Day” Wilson just won the ‘Bowl and ain’t got not nair one commercial out the deal. Not one. That nigga salary ain’t even a million dollars.

    And Tiger got praised cause he was GOOD. Like, “Greatest-Who-Ever-Did-It” Good.

    Collins is just… out there. I literally could put a sack of potatoes on the court in his place and the team would still perform exactly the same.
