Jay-Z Thinks Gay Marriage Is ‘The Right Thing To Do’

Rapper Jay-Z has spoken out about gay marriage, saying that he believes legalizing it is simply the right thing to do.

During an interview with CNN the rapper expressed his disdain over discrimination of any kind.

After the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, earlier this year, Jay-Z made the decision to never use the “b word” to regard women in a derogatory manor from here on out.

He explained, “I’ve always thought [of] it as something that was still, um, holding the country back.”

“What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. [It] is no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.”

Last week, President Barack Obama came out in support of gay marriage, an issue he has avoided at all costs for the past four years.  When Jay-Z was asked if he thought this stance would hurt support of the President among the black community, he claimed it wouldn’t matter.

“It’s really not about votes. It’s about people… I think it’s the right thing to do.”

    Thats problem with the world today.everyone is afraid they are going loose money,political game,fans,etc.and agree with something that isn’t natural and let alone a sin in the eyes of god.that’s why the world is in the turmoil its in now.no other religion accepts this type of union.there is absolutely no way you can compare racial discrimination and gay discrimination.answer this:have you ever seen or heard of two animals,insect,reptile,amphebian etc have sexual relation with one another if they are the same sex?no you have not.jay-z,Obama and everyone who now tolerates this disease are only doing this for their own personal gain.do you think jay-z answer would have been the same on this back in 1995 when he was living in the Marcy projects.Christianity,judism,Islam,budissim agree on homosexuality.THAT IT IS WRONG!
