NBA player discusses growing up with polygamists

To this point, I haven't posted about the raid of a polygamist community in Texas that delivered some 400 children into foster care. But this interview from CBS' "Early Show" is a good entry point. (Blogger won't let me embed the video, so click here.)

The subject is Cleveland Cavaliers center Lance Allred, who grew up in a polygamist community. It's an odd rambling interview, and, when asked whether he ever saw signs of sexual abuse, Allred answers yes but then gives a strange qualification:

"You can get caught up in the black and white of it all. There are bad apples in every religion who exploit people."
