Has R&B HipHop Culture Become More Gay Friendly? Maybe…


Sly Merritt has a BA in psychology/sociology. MA in clinical psychology. He's a flip flop wearing hippy with a peaceloving mindset. Even pacifists like him know when it's time to do all we can for LGBTQ equality. Sly's views are all opinions not advice.

    Why did you write this on a white blog? Gay white men are among the most racist motherfuckers in America, this should be here. I can’t wait for their responses.

      May I ask why you think such a myopic and generalized view of the men and women that read this blog is a proper statement to make in an article about hiphop music? Did you think your little ‘controversial’ comment would cause some waves among the readers and bloggers for this site? Sounds like your way of thinking by labeling an entire group of men thinking that you’re either clever, witty, or profound and from the comment you made I would say you struck out. Point is, when you harbor such deep seeded hate exhibited in your comment, you really aren’t contributing to the discussion at hand, but rather stifling the process of discovery of what can be learned from our experiences yourself. Acknowledging the discrepancies and problems within the community is one thing, because that would’ve been constructive, but having such a standoffish hateful and resentful message like this only further implies that you need to do some much needed soul searching yourself Jay. I don’t limit my experiences to the one of 5 ethnic races that I belong to, maybe you should do the same about the one you just stereotyped.
