I'm not a regular visitor to Concreteloop.com, and in fact, the name is banned on this site as are links to that blog. Why don't I like that site, well, for one thing it is difficult to navigate and the blog owner's butt kissing is a little too extreme for me.
So it came as a surprise to me when I heard that the blog owner signed flamboyant openly gay blogger B. Scott as a contributor.
Clearly, the blog owner didn't know her audience very well because after this Friday's B. Scott post, her readers were threatening to mutiny. The comments were so bad that another gay blogger made a video in protest.
What the readers objected to was the very thing that makes B. Scott special - his in-your-face "I'm gay and I'm proud attitude." Most of the comments this past Friday were from readers who aren't as open to the gay lifestyle as the blog owner thought they would be.
Here are a few of the comments:
...WHY ARE YOU MIXING THIS KIND OF MATERIAL INTO YOUR CONTENT ANGEL? TO BE SO MAINSTREAM, WHY “CROSS OVER” INTO THE GENRE OF CONTENT THAT INCLUDES MEN WHO ARE “CROSSING OVER” AS TRANSEXUALS!!!!...
...I do not know if Concrete Loop knows there audience. But putting this guy on here offends a lot if not most black male readers. I for one just lost respect for Concrete Loop. Call me a predjudice, but it is what it is. I don’t like it, I don’t like the “gay” life being uplifted and put out there as “Normal”....
...Lmao, this is the reason why the Lord has given the black woman the highest rate of AIDS, and deservedly so. Just infatuated with black male, overt homosexuality (omitting the scattered remnant of sisters that have some sense). Pathetic. This is a sign to the heterosexual black men that they really need to scrutinize who they lay down with, because if so many of these modern day, “god-fearing”, black women are so virulently open to homosexuality, they’re open to everything else and have no qualms about opening you and your children up to it also...
Obviously the readers of CL aren't aware that the blog owner already has one flamboyant
queen gay man on staff who prefers to stay behind the scenes and not make it so obvious.
This Friday, the blog owner stoked the fires of discontent even further by posting a video from another openly gay brother who was offended by the homophobic comments left by her readers.
The blog owner, who clearly enjoyed the controversy, wrote: "I guess I was a little naive, because I did not think adding [B. Scott] to the rotation would be this controversial. I do appreciate all the emails expressing your likes and dislikes though, keep them coming. Until next Friday... tee hee…."
