R & B Star Usher Claims to Know Root of Lesbianism

In what has to be the dumbest thing I have read today...

R & B Star Usher has this to say about homosexuality in Vibe Magazine's July Edition:

"It can never be bad to have a foundation as a man—a black man—in a time when women are dying for men," he says. "Women have started to become lovers of each other as a result of not having enough men. Are you not studying the stories? Wake up! Black love is a good thing." (VIBE)

In light of this and past homophobic and insensitive comments made in VIBE magazine, tell them you would like to see some positive, fair, and accurate portrayals of LGBT people in pop culture.

I can't believe shit like this would get out into the public. Is the editor so basked in their heterosexual privilege that they fail to see the homophobia in what he said? Just stupid.

oh geesh....as soon as my vibe arrives in my mailbox as my daughter in law passes my house on her way home from work -- come and get this, i just don't read it.

i might have to get this one back, i never knew he was that ignorant, but then again i get absolutely tired of these words 'especially in the black community' it's like a broken down record.

vicki this is just one of the many ignorant comments he has made about gays. its a shame when public figures say such stupid things, i mean kids are listening to this junk science and taking it literally.
