Is there an effort to emasculate heterosexual black men?
Nipsey Hussle‘s answer? Yes.
Find out why the performer feels it’s important for African-American men to lead their communities with love and intelligence…and steer clear of “homo sexual” behaviour below.
Nipsey Hussle has a point because the media tries its best to emasculate black men. Sometimes its good to just see heterosexual black men.

Demonstration speaks louder than Conversation. They gone feed us every image of our men and boys but this one. No hyper violent…No homo sexual…No abandoners….JUS STRONG BLAC MEN AND YOUNG Men. RESPECT TO MY BIG HOMIE @bigu1 for Leading with love and intelligence. GOD IS WITH US WHO CAN GO AGAINST US 💪🏾
His words were met with condemnation from some and praise from others.
Nipsey Hussle is a fool. You can be a strong and brave Black man and be gay as well. I’m so fucking tired of straight Black man shaming gay Black men for being “feminine” and “weak” when it is Black gay men who are the main ones on the front line fighting for all Black people.

Wait, Y’all mad at @NipseyHussle for basically saying the media tries to emasculate the image of black men but in the same breath will criticize Tyler Perry because he partially got his wealth/fame for wearing a dress? Lmao hypocrites.

Nipsey Hussle would’ve had a point of we discussed how Hollywood constantly type casts black people as either comic relief or only acknowledging the slave movies.

I see nothing wrong with what Nipsey Hussle said about an agenda to emasculate men. It’s glaring for all to see. The American media pushes this propaganda through its movies and music. Be what you wanna be. Just don’t force me to love or accept it!!!

Nipsey Hussle didn’t even say anything against gay people. He just simply said there’s more to the black man’s image and y’all took that and rannnnnn omg

Hussle isn’t the first artist to claim there is an effort to emasculate black men in the media as a way to uplift white supremacy.
It’s exhausting to see people defend homophobia with all types of random arguments. I’m hoping that this isn’t a glimpse into the rest of 2018.
