… is it revolutionary for white people to get mainstream recognition for talking about homophobia in hip hop, when queer hip hop artists of color are routinely ignored? The fact of the matter is, the success of “Same Love” is largely due at least in part to white audiences being more receptive to white straight men talking about oppression than oppressed people, as well as the comfort of being able to remove themselves from misogyny and homophobia because the oppression at hand is the fault of Black people in hip hop. What could be more revolutionary than that? How about listening to queer people of color?
