Another One, Ctd

John McWhorter wants Eddie Long to come out:

Eddie Long would do himself and his own race a massive favor if he, shall we say, had a conversion here. “Got the call,” to put it in language familiar in his realm. He should openly admit what he did, disavow his antigay positions, and serve as a beacon to a black community that needs to get beyond an unthinking prejudice especially unseemly in a group positioning itself as a standard-bearer of America’s moral advancement.

Not to speak of the pressing need to tackle homophobia's role in spreading HIV in the African-American community.
