With rap's heavy-hitters like Eminem and 50 Cent openly dissing gays, Kanye proves that his views are as revolutionary as his beats and skillz, yo. A big ups to my brother. (Yes, I am aware that my attempt to be "down" are ludicrous, but there aren't many in the straight male-oriented rap community who come out publicly on our side and I think it's exciting. He's brave to stick up for us. Now I have to go look up "antonym."

Kanye West Calls for End to Gay Bashing

NEW YORK - Kanye West says "gay" has become an antonym to hip-hop — and that it needs to be stopped. During an interview for an MTV special, the 27-year-old rapper launched into a discussion about hip-hop and homosexuality while talking about "Hey Mama," a song on his upcoming album, "Late Registration."

West says that when he was young, people would call him a "mama's boy."

"And what happened was, it made me kind of homophobic, 'cause it's like I would go back and question myself," West says on the show, "All Eyes on Kanye West," set to air Thursday night (10:30 p.m. ET).

West says he changed his ways, though, when he learned one of his cousins was gay.

"It was kind of like a turning point when I was like, `Yo, this is my cousin. I love him and I've been discriminating against gays.'"

West says hip-hop was always about "speaking your mind and about breaking down barriers, but everyone in hip-hop discriminates against gay people." He adds that in slang, gay is "the opposite, the exact opposite word of hip-hop."

Kanye's message: "Not just hip-hop, but America just discriminates. And I wanna just, to come on TV and just tell my rappers, just tell my friends, `Yo, stop it.'"

West, whose debut disc "The College Dropout" won a Grammy for best rap album, will see his second record in stores on Aug. 30.

Kanye was wrong. There is nothing like his comments destroying the efforts of everyone to raise money and help all of the vicitims of New Orleans. Was his reason to go on the show really to pitch in and help his fellow man or to promote his own Political Agenda?

This is an outrage. When people are hurting, Kanye is of the intelligence to think that this was the right place and the right time to speak his opinion. I do not dispute that the people of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama have been left to fend for themselves. I do not dispute that the news has been showing the plight of the people and making it look inflammatory for people of color. The Government has been slow to respond, to people of all color. The Government at all levels has not done their job. The facts are the facts. Now, we all have seen the misery of all of the victims of the hurricane. but for Kanye to say what he had to say is irresponsible. He only went on the benefit concert to promote his own selfish needs. If he really wants to make a difference, have him get on the front line. Then encourage him to run for office. The mark of a true American is to pitch in, get the job done and then deal with the why events unfolded the way that they did. Kanye took the easy way out.

It is unfortunate that Kanye is using his celebrity to create his own hurricane to create more problems. Now, it is time for him to fix what he broke.

He was quite emotional when he spoke. He's still a young man learning. He could have covered that topic in an interview later, but he's known for being direct and open in his communications. He makes people think. He says things many are thinking but others are afraid to say. I admire the guy greatly. This was a mis-step, but he could be one of the more important voices to come out and challenge the status quo. Every generation needs that, but he could suffer the sacrifice, or rise above and gain the respect of the mainstream. I wish him well. People listen to Kanye. He's going to realize that now more than ever.

This is America and Kanye has the same right to speak his mind as Nelly has a right to wear his mouth Grillz.
