Yesterday on Facebook, my friend Lauren responded to my posting of my Atlantic piece on Collins and Griner by saying, ” I was very tempted to make a macro with his image and his quotation (“I am black. I am gay”) and a photo of her wearing a bow tie saying, “Cool story, bro.” But I didn’t think that would be productive. *pats self on back for being less snarky this week*”
Well, Lauren, I’m nothing if not willing to do something snarky and unproductive.
Image I created today, adapting the famous first three sentences of Collins’ Sports Illustrated piece: “I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.”
(I forgot the hyphens, I realize now and like being snarky and unproductive, I’m also lazy)
