Homophobic Rapper Bizzle Turns Macklemore's "Same Love" Into Anti-Gay Hate Song

Imagine a neo-Nazi white supremacist hijacking "Go Tell It On The Mountain" and transforming the iconic civil rights song into a message of hate. Bizzle will probably rap about how unjust my comparison is because he's already done that in his version of Macklemore's LGBT anthem "Same Love." 

In a controversial move, Bizzle has replaced Macklemore's award-winning lyrics with these:

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?" / Moms 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.

You were never oppressed. The devil was a liar / The only thing oppressed was your sexual desire / Keeping your desires oppressed is so lame to you / But when you get married that's what you expect your mate to do / It angers you if I compare you to a pedophile / Because he's sick, right, and you're better, how?

But you were never a girl. He was once nine so at one time in his life it was just fine. / What makes your laws right? / I'm not buying it so put it in the same trash can you put that Bible in. / See how that cycle is? / Nobody wants to repent of their evil so we all try justifying it. / And you say it's about rights but you lying though - domestic partnerships gave you rights a long time ago. / God created marriage when he did he defined it though so why is it that you want what he created but denying no. / It's not wicked enough switching the definition you want it done by a Christian in a church he worships in?

 Listen, if you dare:

he clearly says that that he is not meaning anything hatefull

He CLEARLY said that he means not to hate.
He CLEARLY said that homosexuality Is just as bad as the sin others commit.
He CLEARLY says not to point all his lyrics at people who he's not talking about.
Read the bible and stop tbrowing useless fists at this man. Have you watched the video? Bet not. This feed is exactly what he was talking about. The media is always trying to brew something into something it's not. And btw, I highly suggest you listen to his music. It will clear the fog that this so called "christian" country is placing on us. Homosexuality is simply something mankind came up with to satisfy sinful lusts. Hence why the God tells us sex before marriage is wrong. People, wake up. All of us. We all sin, and all our sins are equal. God's almighty, but he gave us free will. Use it for good, instead of such sins as these. I'm addicted to pornography, but you don't ever see me accepting the chains that the porn industry is trying to place on me. NEVER! I'm gonna fight this sin because God wants me to. And with him, you can do anything. If you've read this far, I hope I've touched you with my words. Please understand, God loves you more than you can imagine. I'm against religion. That's why I'm a Christian. Its a wag of life. But you don't have to be a christian, simply look to God. Commune with him. Pray to him. Love him. For he loved you first. And the Father always will. God bless you all. #GodOverMoney

Some of you obviously don't  understand lyrics.

You also can not compare The Civil Rights Movement to The LGBT Movement. Nor can you compare either to the Holocaust or Killing of Native Americans all where Millions Died and suffered greatly. Which also paved the way for LGBT rights.

Bizzle is addressing SIN, more specifically homosexuality because Macklemores song is misleading, inconsistent and may be offensive to some.

Being gay is a sin, so is Lying, Stealing, and murder. I personally don't like that a liar  and stand with a hatefull sign  and protest against LGBT .  Well all sin, we all sin differently,No one should be discriminated against  and GOD will decide our Fates based on our own sins.  

SO The REAL issue is HATE and DISCRIMINATION in any form. 

Just to be clear here... he's a bigot for not accepting your views? What does that make you for not accepting his views? It makes you all bigots and intolerant hypocrites.

Most of you sound ignorant because none of you obviously listened to the song. If you did, you'd know that he clearly says, multiple times that he doesn't see any difference between homosexuality and his sins.

If the writer of the article was honest, he would have mentioned that part, but the lying bigot that wrote this hate piece is a liar. Simple as that.

i hope he has a gay child......shit would be real

God did not create marriage..man did! Ignorant and a bad rapper!

Yes he's a bigot, but what's the point of publishing his hate? 

When I saw a similar post on another website, I knew it would cause more than a bit of controversy. I'm also not sure it will ever pick up steam. No mainstream radio station is going to play it and Christian rap does very poorly in sales and airplay. There are many reasons to see this piece as homophobic and even some Fundamentalist Christians will find faults with the use of scripture even though they may agree with this person philosophically.

When ever we look at civil rights, whether it be women's rights, religious rights, workers rights, etc, we look back to the struggles of African Americans to earn basic civil rights. There is some commonality in the struggles, but with rising income disparity, and African Americans often being at the bottom of the ladder, some of what most of us reading and responding to this post consider basic rights others see as elitist, Middle to Upper Class white rights. And lower income earning whites often view these things in the same way.

Now I have no idea whether Bizzle grew up in the inne-rcity or his income statusand this hate filled rant cannot be defended, but as I heard it I could not help but think our country is not as equal as some think, but then again we probably know this.

And, we are giving he AIR SPACE?! Why?

Yeah...like this is going to hit the charts!

This is outrageous! I'm ashamed for this rapper! 

Does he not know that "Bizzle" stands for "bitch"?

who brought this guy up?????? he has a lot of living and learning to do.....though........of course.....of course!......he would be the absolute last person on earth to admit it........because he's so damn sure that he is 100% right............he'll learn......he'll learn........his eyes will one day open.......right now his eyes are very closed.........closed tight.......to the suffering of gay people......oh and by the way........gay people have been hanged.....and burned at stakes......and tortured.....so what is this guy talking about in his lyrics????......he's a big fat liar saying only black people have gone through those horrible executions.........its horrible when anyone had to go through it.....and many many different people have in history.....learn history little boy.........he's so blind......and a completely dumb young man.....he's just a boy........wait till he's in his 40s or 50s or 60s and he's grown up a bit............... 

Fuck this pudgy asshole. Why are you giving him PUBLICITY???  This is what all those kinds of assholes want....

His lyrics only showcase how lost, ignorant and uneducated he is. YES, there have been GLBT's who have been murdered - not for reading - but for just being who they are. This guy's a pathetic piece of trash who will hopefully be shunned from the business.
 

Why are you giving this guy any play at all? 

I did think it pointed and well written.  I was impressed and personally offended at the same time.  This is an example of how amazing the human brain is at justifying and perceiving the world in a sasinct and seemingly rational way when our believers, comfort, and limited experience is challenged.

i would pose to him that interracial marriage is more parallel to gay marriage than the racial and LGBT movements.  However there is freedom in not having to conceal. Color is apparent a nd exuality is not and gives greater cause for fear and isolation.  Ones race is typically a common shared experience with family and at the time of the civil rights movement your social circle.  LGBT people are all to often at odds with their family and social circles.    

omg this shits hella funny,  everyone knows theres only 1 true judge n thats the man upstairs.  so this man is blowin smoke up his own ass,  i have christian mormon baptist ect all up in my fam n circle of friends.    plus i like hip hop but do u see me puttin out a diss record.   lmao im hella weak soooo glad that i came up the way i did cuz i tell you what.   i would rather b hated for who i am than wtf could b rumored...   real talk,   btw anyone who would like 2 chat with me on this jus for fun n idk..   to make a new fiend u can find me on facebook my name is will keyser.   aight im out ttyl mucho amor por vida.    =sleepy ray=

This rap is well written & quite clever, although very misguided.  It makes me sadder when clearly intelligent, artistic, "Christian" people are lost in ignorance.  This guy has been mislead & has a lack of any basic understanding of what it is to be LGBT.  I think his point is that "if" you really were born this way & you really can't change, then you should just not act on your desires.  You should focus all your love & desire towards God/Jesus/the church.  My question is why?  Why should I deny myself fully realized relationships with other humans? And what difference does it make to you or anybody else what my relationships are?  If you believe in God & heaven & you plan to spend eternity in paradise, that's great.  Do whatever you think it takes to make that happen for you in your life.  Don't "sin", repent, don't marry someone of the same sex, don't cheat on your spouse, but leave the rest of us to follow our own journeys.  You do you & good luck to you.  I think your path is flawed & you think mine is, we're even.

This continued idea that if we deem homosexuality to be acceptable, then so it will follow that pedophilia will be next is so ludicrous.  Beyond ridiculous.  There are more abusers of female children by males than male by males & their issue is not gay, or straight, they are abusers of children.  It's the fact that their victims are children that is their appeal.  Pedophilia is abhorrent & far too common.  Homosexuality is not the same thing.

Homosexuality is no better, or worse than heterosexuality.  It's just people loving other people, or having sex with other people.  If having sex with someone of the same gender doesn't suit you, then I suggest you don't do it.  But if it does appeal to you & you chose not to follow your natural desires, then you are cheating yourself & likely your poor spouse who wonders why you don't want to sleep with them.

Does Bizzle think that all homosexuals should become priests/monks/nuns?  It already happens & has probably happened for centuries, but that kind of sexual suppression can & has lead to horrific consequences.  You can't just pretend the desire away.  No matter how hard you wish, or pray & I believe that there are millions of LGBT people who can testify that no amount of prayer makes a blind bit of difference.  We are what we are.  We are not sick, or disturbed, or sinful because we are LGBT.  We are human & we are flawed in many ways, but our gayness is not a flaw, or a defect.

He states that gay rights movement is not the same as the civil rights movement & there are definitely major differences, but at it's core, the struggle is for equality.  Gay people have also been persecuted, stoned, beaten, killed, raped, hanged, jailed & interned in prison camps.  LGBT people are regularly, publicly stoned & beaten to death in too many parts of the world, even today.  But he's saying that we have a choice to hide who we are.  Is he saying that all those who have died at the hands of the mob were asking for it, because they could have just acted straight & no-one would know?  There is a difference.  I agree.  To some degree it is a difference of scale.  I have no desire to minimize the civil rights movement.  I believe in equal rights for all people & I despise racism.

I for one am extremely proud to be gay & I want & deserve equality.  All LGBT people deserve the same rights as everyone else, in this country & the rest of the world.  No amount of religion, hate, religious, or republican rhetoric, or "Christian" rap songs are going to change that.  EVER! 

Well said!

Think of all the gay bashings that have occured. Matthew Shepard was tied to a fence and beaten to death. Allen Shindler was beaten beyond recognition and you say you can't compare the two ???  Gays have had it far worse than any minority group.  

I don't even know who this fucking idiot is. What a douche...

I won't listen to this. Muted er is murder and his people were called monkeys and hung from trees not too long ago but that's not ok but murdering gays is? Self righteous black bigot and if he actually read his bible he would read past those several passages and I would bet my life he has sinned. By writing this he's sinned. He who is blemish free and without sin cast the first stone and you if all people cannot even cast a pebble. Rot in hell and Shane on you! 

intrestingpost  but  there flaws  to this ever one  is sinner

Ummm...and who is Bizzle? Exactly!

My question exactly...

What a fucking idiot. He doesn't even realize that he encourages the bigotry. Bizzle="I can't make it on my own, so I'll steal someone else's shit." Gimme a break. LOSER!

Yes we've been raped, beaten, hung on fences to die and murdered, and all this still happens today by bigoted assholes like him. What an arrogant piece of crap. The bible condones slavery, but I bet he doesn't agree with those passages.

1 Timothy 1:10

English Standard Version (ESV)

10 the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers,[a] liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound[b] doctrine,

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Timothy 1:10 That is, those who take someone captive in order to sell him into slavery
  2. 1 Timothy 1:10 Or healthy

I'm not even going to listen to this fool!
