Roland S. Martin Daily Podcast 04.30.13: How Does NBA Center Jason Collins’ Announcement Affect The Black Community? Should Collins Be Considered A Hero?

Roland Martin talks with Cleo Manago about the impact of Jason Collins’ announcement, how it affects the black community and Manago answers the question of whether Collins is a modern day hero.

  • I’m
    sure I’ll get a lot of flack, but IMHO sexual preference is not a
    relevant public discussion. Is there a reason why I should wear a
    t-shirt that says “I’m Not Gay?”

  • Role model, sure, and for many reasons. I’m not so sure announcing our sexual preference to all who will listen is all that heroic as much as it could be self promoting? Just saying.
