March 18, 2004
The temptation is to chalk the "I ain't into faggots" silly, inane slur that former street thug and hip hop artist 50 Cent made in an interview in April's Playboy Magazine as yet another case of a show boating rapper playing to the street crowd. But 50 Cent's comment and slur is what many black men say publicly about gays and many more say privately, and that includes the slurs. Their contempt for gays is hardly new.
