Jason Collins is definitely capitalizing off his announcement, that can’t be argued. Is it a sin? That is up for personal debate.

Former Celtics and Basketball Wives star Eric Williams has never been silent about his views on homosexuality, so it wasn’t surprising that he had a strong take on Jason Collins and what this means for African-American Athletes.

Williams just has an opinion, it is probably shared by more than a few people and even some athletes, but they would never say it in public.  Williams has been out of the NBA for a while, so his opinions won’t crossover to the mainstream like Mike Wallace’s comments.

There is a general fear to go against the mob and an anonymous NBA player even admitted he is scared to speak on the subject.

Some could argue that Williams’ appearances on the Basketball Wives, did more to hurt the black man’s character, than anything Jason Collins has done, but once again that is just an opinion.

We should respect each others opinions, even if we don’t agree with them. The concept is pretty simple, you want your opinions respected, so why in turn would you bash others?

Don’t be a hypocrite, the mirror never lies.
