Jay-Z Jumps On Barack’s Pro-Gay Marriage Bandwagon

Jay-Z isn’t exactly the first person you’d expect to come out in support of gay marriage, but he’s not the last either. The underlying (or obvious) homophobia in rap has been apparent for years.

Artists like Rick Ross, Eminem, The Game, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Ja Rule, DMX and Tyler, The Creator are all guilty of it in some form. Jay-Z, who recently came out in in support of Obama’s comments, has never done more than name-drop notorious gay-basher Buju Banton.

People still seem shocked by his words. “I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love.”

“That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple…”I think it’s the right thing to do. It’s not about votes. It’s about people. It’s the right thing to do as a human being.” 

Others feel that, due to star power, Jay-Z backing the issue is actually more influential than Obama. Fifty percent of over 30,000 voters on a TMZ poll thought so.

In other news, boxer Manny Pacquiao is firmly against it. No surprise from a devout Catholic. He told the National Conservative Examiner:

“God only expects man and woman to be together…It should not be of the same sex so as to adulterate the altar of matrimony, like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah of old.”

  1. Great way of showing that we don’t need to listen to a African American, nor the President, who has always been against gay marriage. He doesn’t even beleive in it. This is a contradiction. GREAT Way of exposing them. Mr. Madenski, must be a proud havning a great writer exposing the truth.
