August Alsina Gives Lesson On The Toxicity Of Using ‘Gay’ As Homophobic Slur While Calling Woman A ‘Bull Dragging Butch’ – Blavity

“There’s some things that’s…while you’re trying to go down that process, this is what’s going to come at you. There’s going to be a lot of negativity, there’s going to be a lot of hate, and it’s not even just from my son’s sexuality, it’s just about being a young Black man. When I respond to things socially, I’m not responding because you hurt my feelings. I’m not responding because I even care enough of what you’re saying because, as we say in the hood, it’s ‘ignant.’ Why I’m responding is because I understand my platform,” Wade said during the interview. 

“I understand that I’m speaking for a lot of people that don’t have the same voice I have as a father, or you know, I’m even speaking for my 12-year-old right now because I haven’t allowed him to sit in front of a microphone yet. But I’m speaking for so many others in the LGBTQ+ community. They’re normal, they’re not even different. Everybody get used to it. The ones that don’t get it, the ones stuck in a box. You’re different, not the people out here living their lives, man, you know what I’m saying? Ultimately, you want your kids to be free and live their lives,” he added.
