A famous rapper made some problematic comments on a New York radio station on Friday.
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame told The Breakfast Club Caitlyn Jenner’s transitioning was an: ‘Affront to God.’
His comments specifically related the role pop culture plays for young people. He said ‘transgenders’ were ‘marketing evil, man.’
Flame’s said traditional families were in danger, who had become ‘afraid’ to be ‘husbands and wives.’
‘Women are afraid to be a wife and young males is afraid to be men.’ he said.
‘It’s like, it’s not cool, they’re not marketing that. They don’t market families and husbands and wives no more. They marketing young girls, you know what I’m saying? Transgenders — they’re marketing evil, man.’
Transgenderism he said was the devil’s attempts to play tricks on you, and you are how ‘God made you.’
‘You are who you are when God made you, not who you became after he did. That’s how I just feel. You rebuking God, man.
‘God didn’t put them feelings in you, man, that’s the Devil playing tricks on your mind,’ he added. ‘That’s a test from God. If you can’t outbeat [sic] that one task and you believe that, then you’re going to believe everything else.’
During the rest of the interview Flame – real name Juaquin James Malphurs – shed further controversial opinions, including the discussion surrounding African-American heritage in North America.
‘I know slavery happened; but guess what happening right now? If you in the hood right now, your rent is cheap…Why you complaining? Stack that paper.’
