To listen to the run of the mill “victim group” advocate, one would get the impression that (insert your victim group here; blacks, non-white Hispanics – sorry George Zimmerman, you don’t make this cut – “other” minorities, illegal immigrants, Muslims, lesbians, gays, bi-sexuals, transgendered, etc. etc…
But I digress.Tthey all claim to “just want to be treated like everybody else.”
Most of we “middle Americans” (or as the media would characterize us; gun toting, knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, tea bagging, racist Troglodytes,) don’t care what color your skin is, which god you pray to, who you choose to love, which party you support (OK we might care a little about this but we’re not really going to do anything about it,) and unless it’s criminal, we don’t care what you do to make a living.
But all of this isn’t enough to sate the demands of today’s sophisticated and media savvy victim groups. Here’s an example; Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL. To be fair, I don’t know if Mr. Sam asked for the microscope he’s been put under, but that’s beside the point. He has been designated by the media as the poster child for gay football players and whether or not he signed on for this roll or not no longer matters.
Mr. Sam was drafted in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams whose head coach Jeff Fisher has likely dreaded this decision since the day he made it. I’m confident that Mr. Fisher drafted Mr. Sam for all the right reasons, he had established himself as an accomplished college football player at the University of Missouri and had obviously shown promise as an NFL prospect.
