Current Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is speaking out, and doing so for LGBT equality.
“I have a unique family history,” he explained. “My parents went through internment camps during World War II and there experience has taught me to stand up for the rights of everybody – equality across the board regardless of what the issue is. This issue has come alive has come alive in the last couple of years and it’s been important to me because equality to me is the most important thing.”
There has never been an NFL player to be openly gay during his career.
“It’ll happen one day,” Scott said. “Whether everybody is ready for it at this point I don’t know to be honest with you. But I think by and large, NFL locker rooms are a lot more tolerant than they get credit for. These issues are discussed.”
