The following piece is an Op-Ed written by Bizzle and sent out via email to God Over Money Supporters. The piece is a response to the nasty backlash Bizzle has received since releasing his response to Macklemore’s Gay-Rights Anthem “Same Love“.
We’d like to encourage everyone to continue to pray and support both Bizzle and Jackie as they seek to make the truth known.
What Happens When the Tolerant Become Intolerant?
Over the last couple of years, I have noticed how anyone who disagrees with homosexuality is considered full of HATE and INTOLERANT…….simply for calling it sin. From ESPN announcer Chris Broussard to Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, it has been become apparent that there are no words nice enough to use when expressing disagreement.
Since releasing the “Same Love” response to Macklemore’s record I have had a few dope conversations with people who consider themselves gay or lesbian; some disagreed respectfully, a few agreed and even thanked me. But MOST of the responses I have gotten have shown hate beyond any degree one can claim to have heard in my song.
The media seems to paint a picture of one-sided tolerance from the LGBT community. The fact that everyone in the country seems to know about the one small Church in Topeka Kansas screaming “god hates fags” only speaks to the manipulation in effect by the media.
I have NEVER met a Christian who liked or agreed with those people, yet they seem to represent the Church’s stance on gay people to the world. But being black, I am not new to seeing the media hand pick the worst representatives of a people group and painting a tainted picture of them for the world to see.
Most of my music speaks to the hood, and when I’m telling black people about their actions and lifestyles, no one seems to have a problem with it. In fact, a lot of the people who feel that my song is full of hate, tend to be the same ones who dance to songs about black people killing each other with no problem.
But let’s not make this about race.
This is about media manipulation and lack of accountability. So I launched this website using screenshots of replies and responses to my record, to show what hate really looks like coming from those who wave the “tolerance” banner so proudly.
