Nipsey Hussle

Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle was forced to defend himself after disparaging gay men in an Instagram post about negative imagery of heterosexual black males in the media.

Critics took issue with Nipsey for a comment he wrote in the caption of an Instagram.com photo of well-dressed black males on Jan. 8.

Nipsey uplifted heterosexual black males while calling out the gay white media for lavishing praise on dysfunctional men like Laverne Cox and TS Madison, while criminalizing heterosexual black males.

“Demonstration speaks louder than Conversation,” Nipsey wrote. “They gone feed us every image of our men and boys but this one. No hyper violent… No homo sexual… No abandoners…. JUS STRONG BLAC MEN AND YOUNG Men.”

Nipsey’s critics called him out for assuming every black person in the image was heterosexual.

Openly gay Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson took offense at Nipsey for depicting gays as being weak, violent or fathers who abandon their families.

“The original point is that gay is not a bad thing, not synonymous with violent/abandoner and not the opposite of strong,” Deray tweeted.
 
Deray tweet
 
Nipsey responded:

“I don’t look down on gay people I love all Gods children [for real]. I take issue with the larger agenda. and I’m VERY WELL INFORMED contrary to my appearance. And my conclusion is there’s AN AGENDA… we can go fact for fact and get u some understanding if you’d like. If not God bless”.

The 32-year-old rapper added: “I listed 3 quality’s OVER represented in the mainstream media’s narrative of what a Blac man is… point out the 1st lie?”

Many Twitter users who are tired of the Gay Agenda sided with the rapper.

@iamstillpunch tweeted: “It’s crazy out of everything positive @NipseyHussle said in that ig post, ppl chose to focus on the one part they deem as being homophobic.”

    in this pic, NIpsey looks like an old grampa that won’t let the thug g life go. He looks very old in the face.

    Truth is truth. Even the devil can quote scripture. I guess in this instance, we can’t judge a book by its cover. In more news, have y’all heard about the backlash Gunuwine is receiving from the trans community because he refused to kiss a transwoman? So it seems heterosexuals have lost their freedom to choose whom to be intimate with because trans people matter more. It’s getting beyond crazy outchere.

  • Jen_no_juice

    He told the truth. But Nipsy you may want to BE the example instead of talking/ posting the example

  • sunni_daze

    Well its all FS and I aint with it and my hand will not be forced and my mind will not change.

  • Kayke

    It’s sad that people can’t read and comprehend.

  • Michelle

    He has one other kid and it don’t matter wrf he look like. He told the truth. When Terrance Howard said the same thing wasn’t nobody trying to boycott his a$$. And Terrance said it a lot harsher

  • karen b

    lol

  • Rayne

    Give me a second… I’m looking for the lie he told. I am tired of it. Everything is about gay this and that. Humans, animals, cartoons, puppets and food.? well maybe not food tho?????

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    It is very rare, that black men are portrayed in a positive manner in the media. On top of that, it is quite obvious that the homosexual agenda is trying to be forced down our throats. Maybe Nipsey’s words would of been taken more seriously, if he was not a reputed “gang banger.” As for Deray’s fake activist, opportunist, celebrity clinger, photo opt,behind.. he can kick rocks.
    Cannot stand him, and that blue vest. He’s another Al Sharpton.. a pot stirrer.

  • Tennessean

    I completely and utterly believe there is absolutely nothing wrong with what he captioned under his post. I believe he could have said worse and decided to clean it up based on the picture. What community was upset? Furthermore, despite his appearance and what peophis reply remained in good taste.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    What he said is correct. A man like myself (father, husband of 20 yrs, having raised 2 children with my 1st and only wife) are frowned upon in the media, whereas a man that buys himself some breasts and puts on a dress is flaunted. Or the “man” that is flaming is applauded. Live how you want to. I have my view of right and wrong, but the Agenda is and has been obvious for years!

    DeRay is delusional! How can you NOT see that gay men are overrepresented?! And that’s of any race

    Gay men are so jealous of women. They can’t stand the fact that they were born men. We need to stop encouraging this behavior with the boys. Out of control, walking around wearing tutus and ish. Ridiculous!

  • Kayke

    The conversation always comes first and I’m not against having it, regardless of who inspires the exchange.

  • Phillybruh

    It is nothing wrong with what he said except he placed homosexual smack dab in the middle of no hyper violent and no abandoners. He certainty meant what he said because he knew the attention that it would garner. He could have made the point without including homosexual in it, but without it just like most of his post no one pays it any mind.

  • James Hudson

    The Bottom line is half of Hollywood is Gay alot your favorite actors , singers, rappers are Gay & the power players are Gay so they could shut Nipseys career down, he got businesses tho clothing store on Slauson and other things popping so he will be Aight if they try & shut his career down in Hollywood. But I’m Fuckin wit Nipsey he do a lot in the community that’s positive that they don’t put on channel 7 feel me.

  • Phillybruh

    Well now they will thanks to him using homosexuals to get some attention.

  • James Hudson

    Nipsey be at Woodys BBQ on Slauson & Dulans Soul Food on Crenshaw he be out here he don’t need the homosexuals for attention

  • Phillybruh

    In order for something that doesn’t involve Lauren London to go viral he does.

    True . But the message has more authenticity and effectiveness if the messenger’s lifestyle lines up with his message.

  • keeVA

    I get what he’s trying to say, but he didnt make complete sentences so its hard to decifer. i THINK he’s trying to say that the media shows us every type of black man except strong positive black men. We always see and hear about the homosexual black man, or the murdering or abusive black man, the dead dad black man. Theres not alot of just “heres a good man”, no label. I dont think homosexuals, male/female, are overrepresented. We should see more! I also feel that positive black men in general are just UNREPRESENTED

  • Nathan Hastings

    Does he feel that way about his stylist and make-up artist? ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well said, brother. But they like to pretend that “there’s no agenda” though, as if we’re too blind to see what’s right in front of us.

  • Noirluv45

    I agree with your assessment. Where are the posts (even here on SR) about the wonderful things Black people are doing. We aren’t all downtrodden. I don’t expect the mainstream media to display our greatness, but we should. Sadly, News One Now is off the air, so we have zero platforms. Another thing I noticed the media doing is constantly pairing Black men and White women whether it be on commercials, the newsroom, TV programs, etc. It’s all by design.

  • Phillybruh

    Just come out already.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I kept looking at his pic above and wondering just how old he really was cause I swear I was thinking the exact same thing you said. Then I read someone in here say he’s only 32. I guess he’s lived a rough life..

  • Phillybruh

    People want cookies for doing what they are supposed to be doing?

  • Michelle

    That’s EXACTLY what he is saying

  • Michelle

    What are you talking about?? What does that have to do with what he said. Y’all find any reason to try to mask the truth. He is right and if you’re offended too bad. They will constantly show the angry black male , the fatherless black male and the gay black male but any other image is few and far between on mainstream TV and that’s FACTS. Notice the only one you said someth Not about is the gay part. So you not offended by the other stuff huh…typical

  • Michelle

    HE definitely doesn’t. He doesn’t a lot in his community and supports and opened black owned businesses. When you make real moves you don’t have to prove nothing to nobody

  • Phillybruh

    None that has ever been on this here blog, unless he is breaking up with Lauren London and when that failed to garner the attention he needs he lumped in homosexuals in his comments knowing full well there would be blow back, which in turn would cause people look up Nipsy Hustle and his music to listen to what he actually has too say.

  • Kayke

    I understand that but his authenticity or effectiveness has nothing to do with the message only to do with people’s expectations….. Being more worried about the packaging than what in the actual parcel. I usually take out what got delivered and throw out the packaging…..that’s how unimportant it is.

  • Nathan Hastings

    Are u mad?

  • http://yvonnechase.com/ Yvonne Chase

    Team Nipsey all the way. He spoke the truth and I’m not mad at him. The media does have an agenda to destroy the image of black men. They constantly show one type of black men. How often do we see images of black men loving their wives, caring for their children born in marriage, taking care of their homes and families, working hard etc.?

    Last week I tuned in to watch the new TV show 911 starring Angela Bassett and Rockmund Dunbar as her husband. I was immediately done with it and will not watch it again because of the story line between Angela and her husband. They are a married couple with two kids and all of a sudden the marriage is ending because her husband comes out as gay.

    It would be to great to see a black family thriving in prime time on national TV. Him coming out as gay didn’t even fit into the context of the show plus the entire premise of the show is weak. it won’t last!

  • keeVA

    Yes Exactly! Its propaganda. There is NOTHING wrong mixed raced relationships, but how dare we show a black king with a black queen showing positivity? That’s just too good for the culture. So media attempts to infiltrate other things in our minds.

  • Hater

    Damn Nipsey look old as hell for 32yrs. – wtf?!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    He got that old man swag LOL looking every bit of 50 and I’m not offended by what he said, I also love all that the great Amen/YAHWeh/God has created.

  • Phillybruh

    I think with black people that’s actually a cool story to tell and Angela and Rockmond have the range to pull that off. The show it self is a bit absurd so its outlining character stories have to be grounded in some type of reality. They portray a thriving black family on blackish but we seem to find fault in how they portray the family.

  • Solstice

    ??__________

  • Could have left it out

    A couple of those boys might grow up to be sweet, and while I agree with him, some things are better left unsaid when posted publicly. I know he had to expect some backlash and I hope this doesn’t affect his coin.

  • NeverSurprised

    Isn’t it funny that when a black man mentions he is a loving father and loyal husband ( to a WOMAN), the only people who see that as a reason to criticize him are GAY “men” like you. Pull the covers up a little, hun, your agenda is showing.

  • Phillybruh

    Hey look at me, I’m a productive member of society I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing.

  • NeverSurprised

    So you can repeatedly mention that you and your “husband” or whatever it is you call him, are raising young sons, but if a straight man mentions being loyal to his WIFE and children, it”s a problem? GTFOHWTB

    Much respect to you as a responsible, loving father and husband. As for DeRay, he is simply doing what he has been paid to do –pushing an agenda that wants to see the elimination of the nuclear black family headed by strong black fathers.

    He has been paid $100 mil., most of it from Soros, so the Soros gay/trans agenda is what he is pushing.

    He’s so concerned about the black men’s negative imagery. But, he has yet to marry his babymother. He claims a gang.

Y’all won’t EVER win like that, regardless of who y’all date.

    Exactly. The media never showcases black men like you…never! Team Nipsey!

    I do mention it as it pertains to the story, but I don’t go off on a tangent and calling heterosexuals names to get my point across.

  • Noirluv45

    Yes it is definitely propaganda to keep us and everyone else believing we are inferior. They will never show our greatness. In fact, even on this site, it’s rarely if ever shown. There is a 14-year-old Black female cellist. How many of us know about her or other Black men, women, and children’s greatness? What’s more, I think there is something wrong with mixed race relationships when they are based on White supremacy. I’m not knocking love. It’s hard finding that right person regardless of color, but I’m a conscious sister, and I believe the strength of Black people comes from the unity of Black men and women carrying on our legacy by having Black children. There are so many Black men running to White and other women. Why? Is it love or is it something else? I’m not saying people can’t get with whomever they choose, but it’s troubling that many Black people still buy into the “White is right” and the more we drown out our DNA, the less strong we become. You hit the nail on the head though. It’s a well-oiled machine working against us.

  • Shira Harding-James

    He didn’t say anything was wrong with it. He means this is the type of black males that are continued to be shown…. it’s an agenda. He means show different types of black males and stop putting them in a box.

    For me, it’s in the same lines of every female role was given to light skin fine haired beauty. Or back in the day they only casted black women as maids….we are more than this!

    @Phillybruh – Can two males and two females reproduce generations through same-sex coital activity?

    If homosexual males and Homosexual females are on an island and although not attracted to each other sexually can they reproduce if necessary the answer is yes.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I still cant figure out what he said that was wrong.

  • Phillybruh

    He didn’t say anything wrong, he just lumped homosexual in where it really wasn’t needed.

  • NeverSurprised

    Doint did not go off on a tangent. He spoke the truth about his life and about the images that we are flooded with daily of gay men and men and young boys in dresses. What words did he use that were anything other than accurate?

    And much applause to you black husband and father. Your son has a great role model.

    @Phillybruh – You are deceitful in changing the narrative of my original post. If non-heterosexual men were place onto their own island and non-heterosexual women were placed onto their own island, who would exist 150 years later?

  • Phillybruh

    But a man that goes out and buys some breast or puts on a dress or a man that is flaming is applauded. I was with him, until then. He was getting his point across too me, until then. It wasn’t necessary.

  • Phillybruh

    When you separate the two then no, but wouldn’t that apply to hetero-sexual males and females on their own islands.

    Nothing. He just listed 3 images of black men that are “OVER represented in the mainstream media’s narrative of what a Blac man is… “

    Im trying to find where the lie is tho. This is very true. Nothing wrong with being gay I have hella gay male friends but damn they are forcing it down our throats. They are trying to make gay the norm which is becoming a thing. Even in TV the gay character is always overly flamboyant and obnoxious but all gay people dont act like that. I get what he’s saying and i dont find a problem with how he said it either. Gay people keep fighting for gay right and equality yet always pull the homophobic card if something doesn’t go their way.Stop being so damn sensitive because not everyone will agree with your lifestyle.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Then stop using it too say what you have too say. Don’t use homosexuals to get your point across, his point was across before he threw it in.

    It’s called context.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Are you sure he’s only 32?!?? I thought he was 50!!!!

  • Hmmp

    Nope! The same people loving this sorry excuse for a man and rapper, will overlook the fact that he is a sorry man and rapper just because he said something they agree with. This is coming from a man who didn’t marry his baby mother and is gang affiliated. Just stop it already! Some of you hate gay people more than you like to use logical thinking. The black family is in shambles because you have all these heterosexuals, who are irresponsible having children. Doesn’t have a thing to do with image. Doesn’t have a thing to do with homosexuals either. How can there be an agenda to destroy what is already destroying itself? Homosexuals catch so much flack from these fake woke pro black hypocrites. When in reality they are the ones causing the damage and still won’t change.

  • Kita Williams

    I wanna address 1 thing in here and that’s the portrayal of gay black men in media. I like that in Greenleaf the 2 gay black male characters (idk if they gay in real life) are not your typical flamboyant type. they are both just….men. just living they life, having a good time they just happen to like men and not women. we definitely need to see more of this bc this portrayal is the most accurate. that’s why masculine gay men get upset bc, while flamboyant men exit, they are not the ONLY gay male archetype. that’s the most annoying part

  • NeverSurprised

    But Phil, its TRUE. Isn’t Lavern Cox applauded not because of his acting skills, but because he purchased some breasts?

    Ts Madison threatens to beat up an 80 year old black woman, yet HE is still applauded. Why? Because he is a man in a dress. It doesn’t matter that he is a vile human bring devoid of morals. So long as he has both a d!ck and purchased boobs, he will be applauded.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Exactly you are so right! That’s what we need to see. Gay comes in several forms. When depicting gay black men in the media they show only two different types. Either they are downlow cheating on their wives with men or they are overly flamboyant. No in between.

  • Applebum

    I’m so sick and tired of this gay/transgender agenda. They are being used for something way sinister and they can’t even see it.

    If homosexuality is so normal and right, why do they keep trying to force everyone to accept it? We either accept it or face consequences.

  • Ni Ni

    Ikr, he looks like an old head that drank too much malt liquor back in the day.

  • Phillybruh

    Laverne Cox is applauded for living her truth and succeeding in an industry that would have years ago excluded her. I don’t know wtf a ts Madison is and who would be applauding her for that.

  • Applebum

    Right on. They’re pushing that black men with white women thing deep. Every commercial it’s always a black man with a white woman/family. Never black women with white men. They want everyone to find black women undesireable.

  • NeverSurprised

    So, he spoke a truth that MOST black people agree with, but many are afraid to voice. So who will stand with him?

    TI and Snoop are always the FIRST to join in the latest SM issue. Will they stand with this black man who is only asking for more images of responsible, STRAIGHT black men in media. Will they support him? Of course not. They care more about not pissing off their gay white masters in the industry than they do about rebuilding the shattered black family.

  • Phillybruh

    Really lately I’ve been seeing the opposite lot of White men with Black women in the commercials.

  • Phillybruh

    After he marries one of his baby mommas, then I’ll take him serious about rebuilding the black family start with his.

  • Phillybruh

    I never defended Kevin Spacey or any pedo. What I said was wait for the facts.

  • Noirluv45

    Isn’t it deep?! I mean, it’s so obvious, but I’m wondering if I’m the only one seeing it. I mean even on the news. They’ll have a Black man/White woman anchor team. Did you see that commercial (I forgot what the product was) where a Black man has a White woman on his back while he’s doing push-ups? Nope, they will rarely do a Black woman/White man coupling, and when I’ve seen it, the woman is usually biracial or very light-skinned. They do want Black women to be seen as undesirable, and they know many Black men are taking the bait.

  • Quitedeliteful

    A nice looking group of young men…I can understand gay people being upset with being lumped in with thugs, criminals, etc. I think Nipsey should have been more specific. Most folks are tired of seeing an over-exaggeration of what the media deems black gay men are — soft, effeminate, catty with a lot of theatrical makeup… On Angela Bassett’s new show, 911, Rockmond Dunbar has come out as a gay man but he is still about his family and he is still a ‘man’. Nipsey is not wrong though in his sentiment that we need more strong, loving, supportive images of Black Men on TV. We already have plenty of pimps, thugs, gang-bangers and buffoons on television and in the movies.

  • mona

    You know….yt slave owners used to “buck break” our black males as form of control. Unfortunately, tradition continues mentally for black men. They give us social programs with stipulations and harsher prison sentences.

    They will NEVER feel comfortable around CONFIDENT heterosexual black men, because it implys that the black male has pride in his racial identity. I find it ironic they can be grouped into their federally protected class.

  • NeverSurprised

    Of course he needs to clean his own house, but does that make his sentiment any less true?

  • Phillybruh

    I only challenged where he threw in homosexuals out of no where. To an otherwise on point statement. But if he didn’t throw it no one would have known about it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Gay folks are a federally protected class? Not tryna be funny or combative. I agree with everything you said but I’m not following this last sentence…

    Yep… I think it would be considered a hate crime…

  • NeverSurprised

    Phil, you are a reasonable man. Can you HONESTLY tell me that, for example, Derek J would be an image of a strong black man in media, one that the young black boys in that photo can emulate if they want to become responsible fathers. Because THAT is the kind of black gay image we see most on tv.

  • NeverSurprised

    Yes, they are.

  • Tay Gee

    I think there is a variety of gay characters now. I don’t feel like Jussie Smollet’s character is overly flamboyant. Also, the characters from HTGAWM, even Cyrus from Scandal. Now don’t get me wrong there are still those stereotypical characters, but they are making progress, lol.

  • Trace da Ace

    I agree with you 100%. Beautiful photo tho.

  • Tay Gee

    Well I hope you have that same energy when people lump “black folks” in with crime and hostility to make a point.

  • Phillybruh

    No he isn’t but Outside of this statement, Nipsy Hustle isn’t one either. But I feel like the complaints would be coming regardless of the image of gay black men shown on TV.

    Chile we are the blueprint indeed! There is a reason they’ve kept us disconnected from our source (Kemet) but now we’re doing it to ourselves. Some of us really believe our history started with slavery. No clue of the Moors or who taught the Greeks and Romans. Even white folks with their selective amnesia. The Moors saved their azz from smallpox. Let me go back into lurk mode?

  • Dee Moe

    Do you know him? Why is he a sorry excuse of a man? So because he didn’t marry a woman he’s sorry? Is he taking care of his children? So he’s gang past. But what is he doing now? Is he empowering youth? Does he own businesses that employ people in the community?

  • SweetTEE

    No disrespect, but I believe all he meant was how the MEDIA portrays all black men. And they absolutely portray them as all the things he listed. It was not to degrade being gay, it was to highlight the stereotypes, just like being a criminal. My Good Judies and gay cousins all dress and act like men, but the media makes it seem like every gay black man is loud, flamboyant, and wants to be a woman and every straight black man is a criminal thug. Black men, whether gay or straight, are always shown in a negative light.

  • Dee Moe

    People talk about rights and freedom to be who you want. But all that is out the window when you disagree with them. Why is it that people who are not gay are persecuted because they believe in? You live your life the way you want let others do so. Why is LGBT acceptance being forced on people? You don’t see the LGBT community standing up for others. But as soon as someone excludes them its a problem.

  • ann

  • teather

    This is a great discussion. It’s important to note what all involved are saying. I see what Nipsey and Deray are saying. I do believe also that we’re in a time when you can’t say sh*t about anything without ppl taking offense. Even the hoodie with the boy and the monkey. I feel like our reactions to these things is what makes them continue to do it. It’s not our outrage that will stop it, or our boycott of the store forever. It’s our ability to NOT react and leave them with their ignorant thinking. I’m tired of fighting their perceptions. F them. Move on. Live your life, freely, gay black woman man bisexual trans whatever the f you are live it and ignore what other ppl say. We have enough money in our community to where if we cared about his kinda stuff we’d support our own brands and our own businesses. Still waiting on blacks to do that. Until then, the banter is just that.

  • SweetTEE

    lol…naw u gotta google that.

  • Hummp

    This literally has to be the dumbest reply I’ve gotten in a while. First off, this man isn’t doing a thing for the black community and if he is it’s for photo opp! Secondly this man is still in a gang, so it’s not his past. Thirdly, you damn right he’s sorry. He’s also a hypocrite. He’s talking about image and empowerment but represents everything opposite. He continues the cycle of baby mama not marrying, he constantly references violence and ignorance in his music. None of the things you mentioned make him a good person. My point was, he didn’t have to add the homosexual part. Because I know outright sissies that are more man than him and anyone in that picture. This isn’t the lqbt community attacking this man, its actually them defending themselves. Again some of you throw everything out the window when it comes to bashing those people, when majority of them just want to be left alone.

    “Demonstration speaks louder than Conversation,” Nipsey wrote. “They gone feed us every image of our men and boys but this one. No hyper violent… No homo sexual… No abandoners…. JUS STRONG BLAC MEN AND YOUNG Men.”

    Nipsey Hustle is absolutely 100% Correct.

    “I don’t look down on gay people I love all Gods children [for real]. I take issue with the larger agenda. and I’m VERY WELL INFORMED contrary to my appearance. And my conclusion is there’s AN AGENDA… we can go fact for fact and get u some understanding if you’d like. If not God bless”.

    Nipsey Hustle is 100% Correct again.

  • Guest©

    Yup, i just corrected my comment where I had shit instead of shut, lol.

  • Li

    You know in Africa, Homosexuality is illegal and even in the Islands. That’s why many young gays try to get to EU or America. They’re not welcome in their country….even today.
    And Nipsey is right IMO. We’re trying to feminize our men — both and all Races, and I miss the days of virile looking, hunky men who were truly hetero men.

  • Dee Moe

    You obviously haven’t done any research. Where do you think the picture came from? They have been taking young boys off the streets. helping them with education, training and other things. YOU have no idea what they’re doing you’re just here to talk with no merit. His original post mentioned nothing about the LGBT it was after someone brought it up and he replied. Do your fact checking and stop talking first. Visit south central and you’ll see the impact. BTW, kids from the inner city relate to people who have been there and made it out.

  • Luv Pitties

    Thanks to you I just saw the video with him screwing his call screening boyfriend ?

  • Bossy704

    The emasculation of the Black is definitely on the media’s agenda. There needs to be equal representation and there is not. Nipsey got it right!!

  • Erin

    The only person that would take a offense to his comments is either non-black and/or Gay period!! As a proud straight black women and LA Native I am beyond proud of Nip, Big U and all the other BLACK MEN who took time from their day and money from their pockets to uplift these young BLACK Men and show the community that we are deeper than Rap Music and violence. And you know what PHUCKKKKKKKK YOU (and you, and you and you) if you got a problem with it and I mean that from the bottom of my BLACK, NON-GAY HEART!!

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • the guest

    It really is overdue to speak up on the gay agenda targeting black males.

  • Bhyisi

    So you mean to tell me if someone considered you in the same category as people who abandoned their child or someone who’s hyper violent you wouldn’t be upset either? I think majority of you commenting are missing the point. He started with them, not the other way around. While he is allowed his opinion, he attacked a community that wasn’t thinking about him. Tired of fake pro black trash women holding up these thugs like they are gods. The more I see black females comment online, its becoming more obvious why the males are looking elsewhere. Just trash!

  • stacee

    Wrong again.

  • NeverSurprised

    Love it when people claim that someone whose entire body is a laboratory creation is living “truth.” Mr. Cox is as phony as his plastic boobs and injected hips ( not a typo). Let him stop taking those testosterone blockers for a few months and THEN you will see his “truth,” bushy beard and all. He is accepted in Hollywood because he is helping perpetuate the Emporer’s New Clothes lie, and for no other reason.

    NS: but if a straight black man mentions being loyal to his WIFE and children,

    That wasn’t what he was doing. He wanted some attention or praise for a choice he made–a choice that society ( married men are paid better because they are assumed to be more stable) and the government rewards him nicely ( tax credits for children).

  • bashi

    Yes I concur this message Nipsey is correct about his statement. He’s not bashing any homosexual men

    everybody is NOT a child of God. though everyone is a creation of God, the only way to become a child of God is to repent and believe in Jesus. one must be born again. John 17 Jesus talks in detail about the family of God and whats in store for Gods children. everybody else is going to hell.

    I recently made a post on Twitter featuring Trevor Jackson, Jacob Lattimore, Markice Moore and dozens of Positive Black men in Hollywood. There are only 3-4 Successful Gay Black actors and a couple reality TV Stars lol.. We only account for .05% of lgbt black actors. Nipsey is acting like we are the majority.

  • http://ebonynsweet.com Ebony N’ Sweet

    How is that possible? There are dozens of straight black actors on TV/Film. But how many actors/actresses can you name that is gay?

  • EMILY POST

    Isnt it totally Liberal to attack anyone who disagrees with any portion of homosexuality now a days. What Nipsey fails to realize the media is full of a large portion of men that are like Laverne Cox . In the Media arts the heterosexual may not makeup the majority so they are welcoming of this type of promotion. Of course they have a vested interest in pushing the agenda of sexuality to the forefront.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

  • KarmaBackAround

    Its crazy cause i totally get what he is saying..black men are never looked at as the strong n wealthy family oriented God fearing man..they display them first as thugs n criminals, then men who makes up majority of jail population and finally the gay or on the “dl” black male…smdh

  • A D N

    We, as black women, have to find some balance to promoting the positive image of black heterosexual male in the media because our silence has left a wide space for the gay black male to exist more prominently. Black women tend to be more users consistently than black heterosexual males, but I don’t have the actual statistics. Just a sample of the people in my life and what I discovered. In other words, what get responses is what we will see more of, because it is what sells. And the generation coming are social media users and see these images and stories, and accept it as norm, because actually, in their training, it is normal. We tend to see more positive imagery of gay blacks because that’s all most are responding to or silent to. Most heterosexual black men are working, raising their families, playing sports, attending church, traveling or fooling around, which mean they are too business to be involved with social media or read these type of stories. And if they are social media users, their interest is more prone to those types of stories.

  • Gone Too Far

    Damned if you do and damned if you don’t. I don’t agree in hate speech but if you simply say I don’t agree with it, there should be nothing wrong with that. Nowadays people can’t say they don’t agree without having to walk on egg shells because of the aggressive backlash from white folks and homosexuals with their speeches about Love is Love and being homophobic. By the way, I’ve also noticed the word homophobic is horribly misused

    There’s alot of gay Youtube Personalities, and oh Tyler Perry lmao.. Count them against all the straight actors, it simply don’t compare.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Although I understand the point that Nipsey made, people should be careful with such statements. He’s confidently stating no homosexual representation when he has no idea who any of these men are sleeping with. And there’s nothing worse than a bitter & jaded queen. They will zoom in & find the DL brothers among this group just to prove Nipsey wrong.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    You may be correct about the few black shows on TV, but I didn’t reference or focus on just one source. You’re free to be oblivious and focus on one source, as I am to comment on what I have seen. I’m not a race card type person, but I do acknowledge what is real in any situation.

    Also you should try actually being a gay person of color one day and feel all of the hate you get from straight women who have projected all of the damn fantasies they hear at church onto you and get mad when you tell them your truth.

    No, respect me as a human being. It isn’t that difficult, but it’s weird that every time that a homophobe sees a gay person all they can think about is that person having sex.

    That says more about the homophobe than it does the gay person.
