    'I'm going to shower across the street, make sure my change of clothes are around the corner,' Stoudemire said.

    'And I'm going to drive...take a different route to the gym,' he added.
    Former NBA star Amar'e Stoudemire has come under fire after suggesting he would avoid a teammate if he found out he was gay.

    The ex- New York Knicks forward, who joined Hapoel Jerusalem Basketball Club in 2016, told Israeli news site Walla Sport, that he would be uncomfortable around a homosexual teammate.

    The news site interviewed multiple Israeli basketball players on their thoughts on having a gay player on their team.

    When the reporter asked the 34-year-old if his comments were in jest, Stoudemire said: 'I mean, there's always a truth within a joke.'

    Other players interviewed said a homosexual teammate would not bother them.

    'No, I don't have a problem with it at all,' one said. Another said a gay teammate would not be an issue if 'as long as he didn't mess' with him.

    Ex-NBA player, and openly gay athlete, John Amaechi has slammed Stoudemire for his homophobic comments.

    'These are serious times and we need serious people to lead important conversations, not petulant man-children spouting puerile prejudice,' Amaechi told TMZ Sports.

    'There is already one too many of those holding court in the media, and the world is poorer for it. Within the world of sport there are plenty of true role models, on and off the floor, whose words are carefully chosen to uplift and integrate society not join Trump and his grinning cabal in their 'locker room banter.'

    'In these tumultuous times, these true role models are the men and women whose voices we need to disseminate to every corner, not a braying jacka** making a desperate grab for relevance amongst a constituency destined for extinction.

    'Lastly, could someone please tell this man to stop flattering himself. It's embarrassing.'

    In 2012, Stoudemire was ordered to pay $50,000 after tweeting a gay slur at another user during the Knicks off-season.

    He later addressed the incident in a statement and apologized to his fans, ESPN reported.

    'I am a huge supporter of civil rights for all people,' he said.

    'I am disappointed in myself for my statement to a fan. I should have known better and there is no excuse.'

    Im actually glad he said what he said because It brings to light some of the pc statements people give in public verse how they really feel about us behind close doors.

    Like
    " im cool with gay people........ (behind close doors) but just keep them away from me......and I gosh dont even allow them around the kids."

    At this point in my life, I prefer people just to be real and honest with me so I know who am dealing with. While lgbt ppl were fight for rights they messed up trying to show heterosexuals "we're just like them" and aim to be "accepted" by them. Sorry but some straight ppl will never accept us.

    Well he's probably already showered around some non heterosexual men anyway, he just doesn't know who they were.

    It also should be noted (if im not mistaken) that Amire's views are probably influenced by Black Hebrew Israelite's ideology.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They are the "HOTEP" folk outside the subway stations talking about conspiracy theories concerning blk folk; they believe blk ppl are the "true" inheritors of Israel. They also believe the LGBT movement is a way to "exterminate blk men and the blk family." Same as the Nation of Islam, 5%ers, and other blk HOTEP folk (ie Umar Johnson).

    So Amire views don't really surprise me at all.

    I actually ran into him on his wedding day. He was walking w his son right around the corner from my old job, heading to the venue. Said wasup and congrats and stuff while we were both standing waiting for the light. Its fukn pitiful to think that that brief lil convo wouldn't have even been ok if the mofo knew he was talking to one of 'them'. Smh

    All hoteps got sexual perversity in their own closets, thus their need to scapegoat and the fixate on LGBT folk. A few of the snapshots:

    1. Elijah Muhammad banging and knocking up teenage girls...see Autobiography of Malcolm X.
    19 Children of Muslim Leader Battle a Bank for $5.7 Million
    Oh, and as some scholars have finally admitted, Malcolm himself was trade and a gay prostitute before becoming a black Muslim.

    2. If you were around in the New Jack era, you probably saw "Dr York's" black Hebrew followers in turbans and white sheets on streets in NYC, Chicago, ATL and other cities...before he was given life in prison for being America's most prolific pedophile and sex trafficker
    Dwight York - Wikipedia

    3. Umar Johnson's love for women of ill repute (at least she was an adult)
    Conscious Stripper & Why She Exposed Dr. Umar Johnson

    4. Ben Chavis and James Bevel, two Christian ministers who got caught up with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam (Chavis even joined the Nation at one point). Chavis used NAACP funds to cover up affairs and sexual harassment; Bevel, who helped with the Million Man March, was a former associate of MLK that was convicted of incest and child molestation before he died
    The Downfall Of Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis
    Civil Rights Leader Convicted of Incest

    Lastly, I love Amaechi's comment about dude flattering himself; they always think they're the desire of both men and women. Reminds me of this gay cartoonist's strip

    I don't understand Straight Men's logic and flawed assumption that gay men will automatically desire them...and it is normally the folks that are ugly AF that are like "We cool as long as you ain't trying to holla." GTHOH.
