Michael Sam And Markus Molinari

Michael Sam, 27, is finding out the hard way that racism exists within the gay community.

Sam, like other gay blacks who prefer dating only white men, are dismayed that they are snubbed by white men on dating websites.

Black gays are speaking out on social media about the rampant racism on the #1 gay dating app, Grindr.

There's even a Tumblr page dedicated to exposing gay racism on Grindr.

Sam, who announced his homosexuality prior to the 2014 NFL draft, now claims he never realized racism existed in the gay community until after he came out.

“I will say this, since I came out, I did not realize how much racism there actually is in the gay community,” he told Attitude magazine.

“It’s terrible. People have told me I’m not gay enough, people have told me I’m not black enough. I don’t know what that means," said Sam. "You want to be accepted by other people but you don’t even accept someone just because of the color of their skin? I just don’t understand that at all. How are you saying that, ‘oh, I want people to accept me because I’m gay but I don’t accept you because you’re black, or because you’re white or because you’re Asian’.”

Sam added: “There are a lot of people whose hearts are cold and that’s sad."

    he needs a job!!
    so what!
    It is called a preference, your mouth may stop you from pitching or receiving ...

  • Bam Bam Li

    He thought he was going to be gifted the "All Access" cards most gay people get these days, you're gay..fine but you're black don't forget that lol as if being gay would negate from that ??

    Racism within the gay community? Noooooo! Say it ain't so.. LOL

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    Hi Michael,

    Being gay doesn't snub your blackness. Old Kanye said 'Even if you in a Benz, you still nigguh in a coupe.' With that being said, even if you are gay, you still a gay nigguh. Life ain't fair and these rules don't change. Don't worry, you'll find your prefered race of Boo, you just gotta search harder.

    You Aint Shyt,

    Luh You,

    B. Sweet

  • Carrington

    How is your preference considered racism though? People have preferences no matter where they are in terms of sexuality. There are black women who feel that there, "ain't NOTHIN like a black man!" Are they racist? There are women who won't date a man shorter than 6'... Is she a heightist? There are black men who only date dark women, or light women, or big asses... It's called a preference and if you're not amongst the group of folk in someone's preferred dating pool, move around.

    One could also called Sam a reverse racist since her voluptuous ass appears to ONLY be interested in white queens. Can black, gay men call him a racist?!? So, you only date white boys, but when those white boys say, "Ma'am, I only date white boys too!" - they're racist, but you're not? #Bye

    So Michael Sam is a snow queen?

    No surprise there.

    Most white gays are looking for the same, but if they are looking for a black guy they have some Mandingo fantasy they want to fulfill, not an ltr.

  • Fendi

    I'm a heterosexual woman. I am aware of the rampant racism that exists in the LGBT community, which is why I'm not a supporter. I will never be a supporter of a racist white agenda that only serves to empower and furnish liberties for white males. Gay white men don't like gay minorities or lesbians. They will attempt to use the civil rights movement of the 1960's to achieve rights. Being gay is not akin to being Black.

    Black lesbians have it worse than anyone in the LGBT community. I will not support my sisters having their rights trampled because of the color of their skin, their gender nor whom they love. We are all free to love as we choose, sans judgment from anyone other than God.

    I support Black gays and lesbians. Before they are gay or lesbian, they are BLACK men and women. I won't turn my back on them.

    Dear Bottoms up Sam, You're BLACK FIRST GAY SECOND. The Gay community DOESN'T give a hot damn about black people. The "GAYS" use black people for numbers that's it. Black Homosexuals are nothing more than NIGS to the White gay men that run show.

    That's funny coming from a guy who want date or is not attracted to black men. O. And just because I'm not attracted to someone does not mean I'm racist. Maybe I just prefer dark skin women but I'm not self hating by not dating mixed or other races
    Also maybe this is the reason why 86%of new HIV cases are in black and Latin young men 16-22 due to racism? Lol. Funny rofl. I'm mixed yes my dad white mother black but so many black people obviously not biracial quick to deny they are black while people who could pass say we black. Idk to each his on. But on the flip sides side I no black people hating on Mexicans etc.

  • maleorderside

    I've literally met dudes online...become best friends with them...and once they learned I'm black...they vanish. But I get both arguments though.

  • maleorderside

    No we are not lol. But the Asians get it much worse. They are shunned.

  • maleorderside

    It's not complaint. He's making a good point many ethic gay men experience. This shouldnt be approached as a gay black issue though if they want traction. They also need to bring in the Latinos and Asians. It won't solve the problem but let gay white media know they're arseholes.

  • maleorderside

    I'm sure he gets that. And so does every other ethnic LGBT person out there. It's an old issue most heteros are hearing about just now though. Just like when heteros learned masculine men can also be gay. Dun dun dun.

  • maleorderside

    Exactly. Gay white men have it good.

  • Music

    I've seen black profiles that have said "No whites". Yes, racism still exists, but sometimes it really is all about preference. A lot of times it goes deeper than what's seen on the surface. That person could be afraid of dealing with backlash from his/her family. Not everyone is strong enough to stand in their truth. I've seen some fine white men who date interracially, and vice versa with black men. Its the other person's lost if they choose to limit their dating preferences to one race. Find someone who will accept you for you, and leave those who don't accept you in the dust.

  • stanhope

    LOL how dumb can this fucker be? First dumb ass thinks HE is going to be the first gay man in the NFL. He thinks he can kiss a white man on national tv. Now this dumbass thinks white gay men are going to fall at his feet because some arrogant, porn star dating bottom was his boyfriend for a minute. LMAO. Purchase a clue. Dick in the dark ain't the country club at noon.

  • That’s Interesting

    How is it racism when you want to date inside YOUR OWN race? I guess I'm a racist then. You can't make, or shame, somebody into wanting you. What's racist is not wanting to date what is a reflection of YOU. Why won't he get him a Black man?

If that's what it is I kind'a understand, if your just gonna have sex than you have a right to be choosy. Some like the big mac as others like the whopper. I'm not racist but I don't wanna sleep with or date a white guy. Am I wrong for that?

    Agreed.

    But let's also not give white supremacy the satisfaction of their marginalization.

    I don't particularly care for Michael Sam. I find him spineless and easily used and pawned.

    Still, in all fairness, he should have gained some access and advancement for his public sacrifice in the white public relations machine of his coming out. That photo of him and his white boyfriend kissing after his draft was in poor taste. That's being nice, it was repugnant.

    Why couldn't he have been photographed in a suit having dinner with that man to celebrate? or respectfully photographed with his parents and family?

    He has poor business acumen, poor business management, false friends in his gay community, and not an ounce of discernment or common sense.

    He should have walked away with at least one gay company endorsement deal, one gay company brand ambassadorship, or even at least a steady job blogging for a gay sports company. They ruined him. With that image of him sloppy kissing that man, he doesn't have the good will needed to coach children in black communities that need athletic programs.

    The white gays used him, spit him out, and left him with literally nothing but returning to school and student loan debts after an NFL career.

    white gays are notorious for being anti-black, esp. back in the day. They only want a black man when they loose their looks and no attractive white guy will give them the time of day, or they are on the Mandingo hung like a bull tip. But yet this fool runs to them with open arms, LmBaO!!

  • PK

  • Oya Shango

    If he likes dating exclusively white men, how in the hell can he accuse anyone else of being bigoted? Based on his own preferences, he would clearly reject the advances from men who are not white, which includes other black gay men. . . . With his money he has no business being this naive and ignorant of systemic racism. The white male gay movement only used him to further their own agenda. Those benefits did not include him becoming an honorary card carrying white boy.
