well steve lacy is causing the foxhole to go haywire.
i got sent the following article a few times today.

i couldn’t wait to dive into this one.
this is the article via new now next…
Steve Lacy is garnering all kinds of acclaim: The 19-year-old member of the Internet has produced tracks for Kendrick Lamar and Vampire Weekend, launched his debut solo record, Steve Lacy’s Demo, and made waves with his trippy single “4Real.”
He’s also one of a growing number of men in the hip-hop scene comfortable talking about their bisexuality. In a Tumblr post this summer, Lacy was asked if he was straight or bisexual, to which he replied “I’m human.”In a followup asking if he’d date a guy, he replied “Sure, why not.”But it was a discussion of what kind of guys he’d date that sparked controversy: Lacy revealed that he’s not interested in black men as romantic partners.
“Okay i get that you see it as a preference,” one commenter replied, “But don’t you think you owe it to yourself to break down the dynamics that lead you to have a blatantly anti-black preference in partners?”
But Lacy rejected the notion he was prejudiced: “The reason for it all isn’t anti-black at all,” he replied. “Growing up around black males, they were always my competitors ya know? I never viewed or saw myself doing anything sexual with my neighbors. I literally, like I said, see them as brothers.”
“As much as you or whoever thinks this sounds like b.s., it’s from a real place,” he added. “I’m a nigga from Compton, I don’t dislike black people, I prefer to live here and be around POC because I love black people. I’m just not attracted to black boys, that is it. I still love them and want them to do well in life, we just won’t date. Sorry.”
he sounds very…
“i look in the mirror and see something other than black”
the way how he worded his entire response...
it came off exactly how he didn’t want to sound.
i can imagine someone of another race saying this about “us”.
i’d respect it more if he said:
“I’m just not attracted to black males”
…since everyone has a preference,
but his sounded pretentious af.
he tried to sound deep and came off sounding like a dumb ass.
typical “hotep” aka racoon-ish behavior.
the type to light incense,
love soul music,
“white don’t do us right” on the outside,
but all up in some white guts on the someone’s insides.
i think it’s cause most of them come off weird.
“we” can’t relate with them because they do entirely too much.
i will say,
i agree with this:
i’m tired of the “out the closet” announcements.
no one is special because they came out the closet.
you aren’t getting the door prize or a 10,000 cash advance.
at this point,
no one cares.
lowkey: some of the cali males be on some new shit.
the color struckness runs deep over there.
his excuse is null on how i hear most black males are out there.
