  •  Fa-lah people? (7+ / 0-)

    He channeling a bit of Santorum with that "fathead" horseshit?

    Just admit you said it Alec. The guy got you so pissed off, you were trying to string together whatever combination of words that were the most hurtful. Acknowledge it and apologize. If you're the ally of LGBT people you claim you are, your works will be well known enough without needing to remind people or to use it as an excuse, and you will almost certainly be forgiven. I KNOW that Baldwin KNOWS that he couldn't explain away the N word by saying he'd donated so much time and money to black causes. So why does he think it's ok in this case?

    •  straight white privilege (8+ / 0-)

      Write a few checks, you know. He thinks that absolves him.

      I don't think GAY people should be using the word.

      •  Considering Al Sharpton is on MSNBC (0+ / 0-)

        You might want to revise that thought and merely change it to one of MSNBC getting what it pays for with stunt anchors. This is an actual quote of Al's:

        "White folks was in caves while we was building empires.... We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.

        How many checks does that take to absolve? Because as far as I know, Al hasn't written any. Though he is a firm supporter of gay rights now.

        Baldwin has is a hothead with a reckless mouth. But that doesn't mean you get to toss out white privilege every time a white person is in a story.
