Howard is obtuse.

For him to say, "I don't celebrate that *&%#, I'm black," has got to be one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard.  Does he even know what he is talking about?  If anyone watches that tape his comment is not the only thing that is absurd.  The N word is dropped repeatedly by people that I am sure are quick to jump all over any white person who uses the N word.  They proved the stereotypes people have about the "thug" mentality.  These guys are losers who happen to be good at something that pays a lot.  If Howard could not play basketball he would not even be able to get hired at Wal-Mart.  To think parents allow their kids to look up to this guy as a role model is another massive problem in our culture.  I will bet there are a large population of kids today when the National Anthem is played will repeat his ignorance because they look up to him and want to emulate him.  Any parent who allows their kids to look up to this guy should be ashamed of themselves.  My hope is there are more people that are appalled at this guy than people who want to emulate him.  Ignorance is a disease, don't catch it, it will kill you.
