Rapper Ja Rule Indulges in Ignorant Attack on Gays

This post, written by Pam Spaulding, originally appeared on Pam's House Blend

The latest bleating is from Ja Rule, who must be in need of some publicity. It's too bad that whatever message he was trying to get across about racism is polluted by his ignorance, and a ridiculous, sad, crotch-grabbing assertion of his manhood by blaming gays for the downfall of the country. The irony of that is quite stunning. (Complex.com):
C: Did you see that report about Congress preparing to hold hearings??
Ja: (interrupts) Yeah, they got my man Doug Morris under fire and shit, they got him going down to go speak to Congress about hip-hop lyrics, are you fucking serious? There's a fucking black kid right now about to get 25 years for having a fight with some white kids over hanging the nooses over the white tree, lets get to that.
Let's get into shit like that, because that's what's tearing up America, not me calling a woman a bitch or a hoe on my rap songs.. And if it is, then we need to go step to Paramount, and fucking MGM, and all of these other motherfuckers that's making all of these movies and we need to go step to MTV and Viacom, and lets talk about all these fucking shows that they have on MTV that is promoting homosexuality, that my kids can't watch this shit.
Dating shows that's showing two guys or two girls in mid afternoon. Let's talk about shit like that! If that's not fucking up America, I don't know what is. There's a lot of issues we can address besides hip-hop, but they want to put everything on us like we're the problem.
