"Meanwhile, data from a federal auditor's review of discrimination cases filed in 2007 and 2008 suggest that only a fraction of complaints are based on sexual orientation.

During that period, roughly 3 percent of complaints that were filed cited sexual orientation as part of the basis for the complaint. The review included 22 states, including Iowa, all of which had laws to prohibit discrimination against gays.

Nebraska was not included because its discrimination laws — and federal regulations — do not cover homosexual and transgender residents."

I'm hopeful more people will see the problem with statistics like these. When whole STATES aren't counted, how accurate can a report be?

On another note the NBA recently made changes to protect it's players and employees from discrimination due to sexual orientation. In fact the NBA has issued some very tough rules on player conduct in this area.
