"I'm not a homo! I'm a racist!"
So continues the lovely story of Florida State Representative Bob Allen. Allen, of course, is the guy who was arrested in Titusville after offering to blow an undercover cop for $20. His excuse now is that he was intimidated and just played along. Now while that is certainly within the realm of possibility (though far from the world of likely), there's absolutely no call for this:
"This was a pretty stocky black guy, and there was nothing but other black guys around in the park," Allen, who is white, told police in a taped statement after his arrest. Allen said he feared he "was about to be a statistic" and would have said anything just to get away.
So which is worse--being a self-loathing gay or a racist who was willing to suck a dick in order to avoid "being a statistic"?
