“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”: Why Has Black Media Ignored the Sexuality of FAMU Hazing Victim Robert Champion? – News & Views – EBONY

Pop quiz: Who was James Craig Anderson?If the name sounds vaguely familiar, let’s refresh your memory. Anderson was the 48-year-old Black man who was beaten and robbed by a group of racist, white Mississippi teenagers in June 2011. And the coup de grâce: Anderson was deliberately run down by one teen—shouting the n-word and “white power”, no less—and driving a pickup truck. The only thing missing from this nightmare scenario was a Confederate flag and the Rush Limbaugh voiceover.For the next two months, Anderson’s tragic fate became a trending topic on Black Twitter, heavily shared across Facebook, and a heavily-commented topic on wesbites such as The Grio, The Root, News One and AOL Black Voices. Until … the New York Times reported that Anderson was openly gay and raising a daughter with his longtime partner of two decades.
