Arguably one of the best rappers in history, Sean Carter, better known as Jay-Z, has been vocal in the political world. Carter has long been a supporter of President Barack Obama.
Many speculated if that approval would stand after Obama made his support for same sex marriage known. Jay-Z was loud and clear when he announced that not only did he still stand by Obama, but he also agrees with the president and his views.
Carter said that banning same sex marriage is “no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination, plain and simple.” He also said that the fact that same sex marriage is not already legal is “something that was still holding the country back.”
The rap superstar said that it did not matter if Obama would lose votes because of the matter because what really matters is equality among the people.
Other celebrities have also come out in support of Obama and applaud his stance.
While some are questioning if this will hurt Obama’s chances for reelection, we believe it might be what seals him the election. The movement towards accepting same sex marriage in this country is strong and the strong opposition by Republicans might be enough to sway voters to the Democratic side.
