Christian rapper Bizzle has recorded and released a version of Macklemore’s equality anthem ‘Same Love’ which instead slams members of the LGBT community and those campaigning for marriage equality.
The Texas rapper says that he believes being gay is a choice, and slams comparisons made to the struggle and persecution of black people.
He raps, “You rather fight God than fight sin / The Bible is alright until it calls what you like sin / And I feel so disrespected that you were so desperate / You would compare your sexual habits to my skin / Calling it ‘the new black?’ Tell me, where they do that? / They hung us like tree ornaments, where were you at? / They burned us for entertainment, you go through that? / Mom’s raped in front of their kids while they shoot dad / Ever been murdered just for trying to learn how to read, bro? / Show of hands? I didn’t think so / So quit comparing the two it ain’t the same fight / You can play straight. We can never play white / Using black people as pawns for your agenda / These sell-out rappers that do whatever you tell ‘em.”
Bizzle goes on to say that he believes that gay people were never oppressed, and suggests that gay they should hide their sexuality. He even compares gay people to paedophilia.
The original version of ‘Same Love’ recorded by Macklemore became a worldwide hit and a gay rights anthem. This month, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis perform the song at the Grammy Awards while Queen Latifah officiated weddings for 33 straight and same-sex couples.
