When is Hate Talk Acceptable
I know all about FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
I know it’s the KKK’s right to spew hate.
I know Fred Phelps can say what he wants.
I get it.
And TI agrees.
In the newest issue of Vibe magazine, T.I. speaks his mind on the Tracy Morgan gay joke controversy,(he said he would KILL his son, if he was gay)
and suggests that it’s un-American for gay people to speak out against those who criticize them…
Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I
ever heard Tracy (Morgan) say during a stand-up was, ‘C’mon man, I
think gay people are too sensitive.
If you can take a dick, you can take
a joke.’ [Cracks up laughing.] That shit was funny to me. And it’s kind
of true.’ –
um, really? Killing your gay son is funny?What an Ass!
While T.I. makes clear that he supports
anyone’s sexual preference, he then connects, in his opinion, a current
oversensitivity among gay people with a consequential and ironic offense
of the First Amendment. “They’re like,‘If you have an opinion against
us, we’re gonna shut you down.’ … That’s not American. If you’re gay
you should have the right to be gay in peace, and if you’re against it
you should have the right to be against it in peace.’
I don’t understand black people – who think this way. Blacks should understand our movement for equality. They have been there.
I think if this is the case, then blacks should not mind if I use the N word. Or if I call them “colored people”. Maybe they are too sensitive. And Jews should not mind when I use the phrase JEW HIM DOWN.
He says if we can take a dick – we should take a joke. Does he like colored people jokes about watermelon and fried chicken? – How about jokes about black slaves? or concentration camps? I would hope, we have all evolved in our thinking. And know what is right and what is wrong. And understand the power behind spreading hateful thinking. Threatening to kill your son for being gay – is not funny. Joke or not.
I wonder if TI finds black joke sites funny? or in bad taste?
I really hate black rappers and their holier-than-thou attitudes.
