Comedian Tracy Morgan returned to Nashville today to continue his tour of contrition after a man who went to one of Morgan's comedy sets posted a story on Facebook about Morgan making several homophobic jokes, including that if he had a gay son he would murder him.
Morgan teamed up with GLAAD for his apology tour and has so far met with homeless gay teens and made amends with the man he offended at the Nashville show. But, during the same month where the state of New York is one vote away from endorsing the right for gays to marry, The Root pondered aloud if black folks were having the most "homophobic month ever" this June. I'd argue ... not any more than white people. I'm pretty sure every month you can find some high profile homophobia in America across the board. Unless, May gets to be the most pro-gay black month ever because Don Lemon came out of the glass closet and most folks were all "high five."
Two steps forward. Three steps back. Then you put a bow on it and call it "progress!"
