Snoop Lion

Rap & Gay

Don't Mix

Snoop Lion believes homosexuality and rap music are like Lindsay Lohan and sobriety ... they just don't mix.

Snoop -- a known supporter of same-sex marriage in America -- was asked by The Guardian if Frank Ocean coming out last year would pave the way for other gay rappers.

Snoop said we shouldn't hold our breath, explaining "Frank Ocean ain't no rapper. He's a singer. It's acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don't know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine."

He continues, "It's like a football team. You can't be in a locker room full of motherf----g tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, 'Hey, man, I like you.' You know, that's going to be tough."

But Snoop made it clear -- it's the nature of the biz, not him -- adding, "I don't have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies."

Plus, we spoke to Snoop last week in L.A. about same-sex marriage. Here's what he had to say ...

I just can't get behind rap being masculine, insecure and posturing, sure, but not masculine. Masculine wasn't even the right word.

I dont get how people are able to judge others for their sexuality orientation!!A person just cant blame another because he/she is GAY saying that they cant be a rapper a profesionnal football player etc.... you cant mix profesionnal life with sexuality life!Because a personne is gay doesnt mean that is not strong enough to participate or handle certains kinds of activities pretending its MASCULINE!! I bet almost 70% professional athletes singers movie star etc are GAY but they are afraid or kind of shy to tell the truth because they already know the public or the fans gonna get them wrong!!The society needs to work on his mentality!!

His comments are so ignorant. No gay athlete would crush on another player in the locker room. And gay men aren't feminine. Queers are fem.

Lil Wayne and Baby. P Diddy and Maze. P Diddy and Fonzworth. Jay Z and Kanye. The list of gay LOVERS in rap is ENDLESS.

Black History 101: The swaggering, bravado, and machismo among black men has historically been nothing more than a ruse to mask their rampant homosexuality. The poverty inherent in the culture has always made young, poor black boys ripe for the "picking", and many of them have their first sexual experiences with older men who offer them money for blow jobs. The absence of fathers to nurture and protect these boys, along with a boy's natural instinct for the presence of men in their lives (with so many black men having multiple children living in multiple homes with multiple mothers, many of these boys see their fathers only sporadically, if at all), only adds to their vulnerability.

In his sexual harrassment lawsuit against Rev. Jesse Jackson, MALE former assistant Tommy Bennett relates how the good Rev., when hitting on him, mentioned that back in his days as a high school football player, the coach paid him $10 to hit to let him suck Jackson's d!ck (though I'm guessing it was probably Jackson himself who did the sucking). Jackson reportly told Bennet this "don't mean you're gay. I was gettin' paid and got my dick sucked."

And this has historically been (and continues to be) the rationale among gay black men -- they have sex with men for years and years and years, but so long as there are a few baby mommas in the picture, they are able to comfortably lie to themselves and call themselves "straight."

In black culture, the absence of fathers (73%), resentment toward mothers, absence of black male role models all add to a community of rampant underground homosexuality. Nowhere is this more evident than in rap, where people like Jay Z and Kanye West select high profile, attractive women as beards and go so far as hiring surrogates to carry children to keep the world from knowing they are actually gay.

But perhaps the BEST example of this underground culture is in the White House itself. Obama's marriage to Michelle was choreographed by a covert group within Trinity Baptist Church that, for years, set up the male congregants with wives so that they could keep all of their gay activity hidden. One of Obama's longtime boyfriends at the church was choir director Donald Young. Young and two other openly gay men at the church were all killed in quick succession soon after Obama announced his national candidacy for president.

Not only are black men NOT masculine, their are COWARDS. White men embrace their homosexuality and do not lie to the world. Black men LIE to women, INFECT women with HIV (AIDS is the number one killer of black women aged 18 to 35) and put on a ridiculous masculine "front" all to mask the fact that they prefer men over women. The most flaming, lisping, flouncing white gay male is more of a man than the lying black DL cretins who kill their own women to hide their love of d!ck..

Just because someone is gay nowadays, doesn't mean that you have to side with them. The political correctness in American society today has the entire nation held captive. You can't simply have your own opinion anymore without being called ignorant or closed minded. I wanna see headlines when the first straight high fashion designers steps forward.

Straight rappers without street cred who grew up rich in the Suburbs have hard times building a fan base in rap music don't you think a gay rapper would have an even harder time. What will he rap about? Who's going to buy his album?

Black History 102: An example of how black men distort language in order to keep from facing the truth about their sexuality can be found in the words of the Rev. Jesse Jackson. Here is a paragraph from the sexual harrassment lawsuit filed in Illinois Circuit Court against Jackson by gay former assistant Tommy Bennett:

"48. Another time at the Hilton at Chicago O’Hare, Mr. Bennett was summoned to
Rev. Jackson’s room at to take notes.... When Mr. Bennett arrived, Rev. Jackson was dressed
only in his underwear (briefs) and a v-neck t-shirt. While Mr. Bennett was talking notes, Rev. Jackson had an erection and was stroking his penis with his hand in his underwear. Rev. Jackson’s breathing rate was accelerated.

Before Mr. Bennett left, Rev. Jackson stated that white folks took the word “gay” and gave the word it’s own definition. ... Rev. Jackson stated that he played
football and there was a gay high school teacher who took Rev. Jackson under his wings ... Rev.
Jackson said “from that gay teacher, I got a good grade, I got to use his car, I got ten dollars and I got my dick sucked.” Rev. Jackson said, “that’s not gay, that is surviving.” Mr. Bennett understood this to mean that Rev. Jackson wanted him to perform oral sex on him. Mr. Bennett left the room."

Black men will always lie to themselves and to the world about their love of d!ck.
