Kanye asks Hip Hop to grow up, stop bashing Gay folks!

This is quite a bold step for any Hip Hop artist, but Kanye West is the right one to do it. During a recent interview with MTV, the College Dropout explained:

West says hip-hop was always about "speaking your mind and about breaking down barriers, but everyone in hip-hop discriminates against gay people." He adds that in slang, gay is "the opposite, the exact opposite word of hip-hop."

Kanye's message: "Not just hip-hop, but America just discriminates. And I wanna just, to come on TV and just tell my rappers, just tell my friends, `Yo, stop it."'


He mentions the turning point in his life occurred when a beloved cousin revealed he was gay which caused Kanye to grow not to discriminate against the lifestyle. This a beautiful step towards spreading more tolerance within Hip Hop. We as Hip Hopers can take this art form to new heights and create social change by leading our people down a more progressive and productive path.

Leave the hating and the discriminating to the bitch-ass Bush-loving dumb fucks of this country. Latinos and Black folks have been hated on forever in this country, why must we succumb to the same hate by passing it on to Homosexuals and even our own women? It's time to follow Kanye West's example and step our game up as far as the Hip Hop culture is concerned!

You can't argue with the fact that the republicans publicly make denying civil rights to people of a certain lifesytle a part of thier political platform. They parade the fact that they want to undermine the rights of Homosexuals.

Why aren't we handling the Gas prices and energy issue instead? Armor for the troops? Education? Loose nukes?

No, no.. the 'queers' might get married! God forbid.
