Nipsey Hussle faces social media backlash after homophobic Instagram post
“In his comments are the idea that to be a gay black man means that one cannot be strong.”
"Demonstration speaks louder than Conversation," he wrote under a photo of a group of black youth. "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"
"I’m speaking on this today because I remember being a kid and being surrounded by people who tried to convince us that homophobia was really just love repackaged — that they were just trying to prepare us for the real world, where we’d need to be strong," Mckesson wrote. "Homophobia kills, too."
