You Can Stop Asking Michael Sam Why He's Dating A White Guy Now


Michael Sam: Dancing with the Haters.

Michael Sam's no stranger to discrimination, having faced it on and off the field since becoming the first openly gay NFL draft pick in history. The shade he's getting these days, however, seems directed at the man he's planning on spending his life with -- fiance, Vito Cammisano.

"The challenge I get now is, why are you not dating a gay black guy?" Sam said during a talk last week at Quinnipac Univeristy. "Why are you dating a white guy? Why would I do that? Why would I leave someone I fell in love with and have been through so many challenges with?"

That's a good question. Here's another one: why does it matter if Michael Sam dates a white guy or a black guy? Or an Asian guy? Or a Hispanic guy, etc., etc., etc? He's happy, open and in love, which is more than he can say for some other NFL players.

"I'm not the only one in the NFL that is gay," Sam revealed. "I'm just the only one that is out."
