Gay Issues In Rap Music | Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Lyrics from Same Love (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) > click the pictures to watch the video …

The right-wing conservatives think it’s a decision / And you can be cured with some treatment and religion / Man-made, rewiring of a pre-disposition / Playing God / Ahh nah, here we go / America the brave / Still fears what we don’t know / And ‘God loves all his children’ is somehow forgotten / But we paraphrase a book written / 3,500 years ago / I don’t know …

gay rights movement, LGBT, homosexual, inspiration, Macklemore and Ryan LewisIf I was gay / I would think hip-hop hates me / Have you read the YouTube comments lately / “Man that’s gay” / Gets dropped on the daily / We’ve become so numb to what we’re saying / Our culture founded from oppression / Yet we don’t have acceptance for ’em / Call each other faggots / Behind the keys of a message board / A word rooted in hate / Yet our genre still ignores it / Gay is synonymous with the lesser / It’s the same hate that’s caused wars from religion / Gender to skin color / Complexion of your pigment / The same fight that led people to walk-outs and sit-ins

Macklemore And Ryan Lewis, Same Love

When I was in church / They taught me something else / If you preach hate at the service / Those words aren’t anointed / And that Holy Water / That you soak in / Is then poisoned / When everyone else / Is more comfortable / Remaining voiceless / Rather than fighting for humans / That have had their rights stolen / I might not be the same / But that’s not important / No freedom til we’re equal
Damn right I support it

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Same loveWe press play / Don’t press pause / Progress, march on! / With a veil over our eyes / We turn our back on the cause / ‘Till the day / That my uncles can be united by law / Kids are walkin’ around the hallway
Plagued by pain in their heart / A world so hateful / Some would rather die / Than be who they are
And a certificate on paper / Isn’t gonna solve it all / But it’s a damn good place to start / No law’s gonna change us / We have to change us / Whatever god you believe in / We come from the same one
Strip away the fear / Underneath it’s all the same love / About time that we raised up
