Lil' Scrappy

Closeted Gays

Spread AIDS

Rapper Lil Scrappy believes gay men like Frank Ocean are the "doorway to AIDS" ... and wants more closeted homosexuals to "come out" so it can't be spread to straight people.

Scrappy -- who now stars on VH1's "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" -- was on "TMZ Live" this week to talk about Ocean's revelation ... when he explained why he completely SUPPORTS the R&B singer.

"I'm glad that he came out ... so all the real women that love to mess with real men, straight men, we can keep the AIDS situation down, you feel me?"

Scrappy continued, "[homosexuality] is a doorway to AIDS, scientifically."

As for the facts, there is evidence that shows men who have sex with men are at an increased risk of contracting HIV.  According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, men who have sex with men accounted for 61% of all new HIV infections in 2009.

Despite his opinions, Scrappy says he has no reservations about working with Ocean if the opportunity arises -- telling us he would "jump on a track like it was yesterday."

A person can get AIDS regardless of their sexuality. It's unprotected sex, not closeted gays, spreading it.

If he were white, there would be an intense backlash and his career would be over for saying that. But he's black, and blacks are allowed to be racist, homophobic, and just plain trashy stupid.

He can have his opinion, but why should anyone agree with him? Perhaps unprotected sex is a bigger cause of spreading HIV,

Once again someone will be attacked and labeled homophobic for saying what is true. It is a fact that many in the Gay community did go out and purposely infect and spread HIV. This was done for many sick reasons, when the disease was known for infecting homosexuals and habitual drug users it did not get much attention or care. This was sad, however this caused many infected to get enraged and spread the disease among the general population, via sexual intercourse, blood donations, and even throwing infected needles into crowds. You never hear of this Dark Side of some very sick people because the liberal media and Hollywood Gay supporters ignore and hide it.

If Little Scrappy would read a book in his life or actually study what he is talking about...He would find that the largest percentage of new AIDS cases are with African-Americans...EDUCATE!!!

If this is Hip Hop's spokesperson, they are more ignorant and illiterate than I assumed.
No one wants to feel this ignorant a**wipe.

Wannabe Ghetto Girl Raquel should have translated this nonsense.

Y'all so stupid...he's talking about downlow men (men who are married or in relationships with women but have sex with men), which occurs mostly in the black community. They go have sex with their "boyfriends", contract HIV, and spread it to their women

Checking In    

From the CDC: "African Americans are the racial/ethnic group most affected by HIV. In 2009, African Americans comprised 14% of the US population but accounted for 44% of all new HIV infections. Young African American gay and bisexual men are especially at risk of HIV infection." There are men who are not being honest with women about their sexuality because of community perceptions and women are suffering the consequences.

What does he have to say about heterosexual couples that constantly spread AIDS by lying to their partners. Like say, African-American rappers that never wear condoms and have many,many children by several different women? Or EVERY movie entertainer in Hollywood?

On a street level, he's right. And to those of you aren't at that level, you can't speak. I've lost some fine but stupid women friends who died from the monster because their boy friends and husbands were secretly gnip gnoping with their boy toys.
