It's officially "Jay-Z Day" in the media. Catching up with Hova in Phildelphia after announcing his "Made In America" music festival, CNN (yep, C.N.N.) asked the rapper/mogul about Barack Obama's open support of gay marriage.
"I've always thought it as something that was still, um, holding the country back," said Jay-Z about same-s-x couple not being allowed to legally marry. "What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That's their business. [It] is no different than discriminating against blacks. It's discrimination plain and simple."
A long time Obama supporter, the "99 Problems" rapper is still in the POTUS' corner; particularly so when it comes to what Obama has done to help the ailing economy (which Jay says is a "test of our character") he inherited. "Reversing the direction of the decline was a full time job in itself, so I think that it's stabilizing a bit now as some of the numbers show," said Jigga.
So maybe the LGBTQ Community needs to recognize that Blacks are NOT your crutch to equality as many wants to claim as if some in the LGBTQ community doesn’t have its issues with Blacks. It’s these white lawmakers that write the bills to harm the community that is THE TRUE ENEMY!
WERK! NOW THAT’S HEART!
