(source: thestar.com) Less than 24 hours after Jays fan James Greenhalgh posted this photo of Yunel Escobar wearing eyeblack stickers with a homophobic slur written on them, the Blue Jays shortstop was suspended. “When you hear or see something wrong it’s up to everyone to let people know,” he wrote on his Flickr account Monday afternoon with the photo. “‘That’s gay,’ ‘You’re gay,’ ‘You’re a fag,’ ‘You’re a faggot,’ are not acceptable insults in 2012. They are slurs and we need to get rid of them. When our sports heroes proliferate their usage our progress takes a step back.” More.
