Jay-Z Voices Support for Gay Marriage

Posted by: Jason Tate (05/16/12)
Jay-Z has voiced his support for gay marriage.
From the Article"I've always thought it as something that was still holding the country back," the rapper said. "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."

Threads gonna blow up with oh-so-noble people defending this cause that apparently needs so much defending even though no one's really arguing. Ah, online-forum politics.

Jay is just amazing. I seriously love everything about this man. He and Kanye are two of the biggest names in hip hop and now both of them have spoken out against homophobia. Love it.

It doesn't need defending? We living in the same country?

I wonder how many people actually see a celebrity or high profile person, in this case Jay-Z, issuing their support and think to themselves that maybe their views on gay marriage are wrong. Impossible to know, but I think it would be an interesting statistic to see.

In the country, sure, but this thread isn't the steps of the capital building. It's just funny that this site can have news posts with hundreds of responses when everyone's saying the exact same thing and its not furthering anyone's cause.

The African-American community, by and large, is anti-gay. Hopefully this will have a positive effect by changing that coarse.

Fact: 59% of Blacks (non-Hispanics) are against marriage equality,

You're the only one arguing or stating a case in this thread. Everyone else is just responding to what he said. I see no arguments.
