Per wikipedia: "In Spain, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Cuba the word has a stronger meaning with a very negative emphasis"
Yunel Escobar is Cuban.

Presumably the team has a policy on racism and homophobia. Presumably he was aware of it.

Isn't this reverse victimisation? A person doesn't agree with homosexuality so we criminalise it.

Would it have been different if he had written "Tu ere negro"?

Since we love in a country where only one group of citizens is still denied equal legal rights, it doesn't surprise me that his punishment was so light.


He plays for the Blue Jays...you know, a team from CANADA. Try and keep up. What would you have had done...jail time....a spanking? Yes, let's make it illegal to call somebody a name!

Free Speech means you will not get arrested for saying stuff. It doesn't mean you can say anything you want without consequences.

@LandoGriffin

La Marica and Maricón have waaay different connotations being Maricón the most harsh of them

His response was basically, it wasn't intended to be anti gay, and it might translate to something that can be taken to be anti gay, I should know better.. whatever Ill take the 3 games off.

Blue Jays Home (With Video!)

He did something really stupid, but he's getting slapped pretty hard for it! That ain't no "slap on the wrist" he got.

What does it mean? "You are - a fag"?

@jendrian: When you call someone gay in an attempt to insult them you are essentially anti-gay.

Even more so when you use a slang word that has negative connotations.

Let him spend 24 hours in jail and see how he feels about gays.
