"As an African American male, I should know better. Hate and discrimination have a lasting effect, and words matter. I also have a responsibility to myself, and especially to my young fans to be a better role model. The kids who look up to me and other athletes are the future of our country, and our future deserves better than fear, hate and discrimination. I was wrong, and I want to learn how to make it right."

-- Beleaguered San Francisco 49ers player Chris Culliver in his second apology since telling a radio DJ that he wouldn't be okay with a fellow football player coming out of the closet. Culliver also announced that he would be working with the Trevor Project to complete his penance.
