Noted artist says Caitlyn Jenner obviously has a “sickness”

lord-jamarLEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — To the point: Rapper Lord Jamar on Caitlyn Jenner’s transition: “This is not just another way to be, this is obviously a sickness.” The comment was made during an interview on VladTV in May earlier this year.

Jamar, who is a member of the band Brand Nubian, and an actor in a number of television projects, says other things about Jenner, including “[Jenner can’t] have his cake and eat it too” when told of her desire to keep dating women, but with the “sickness” comment, we can conclude at this point that Jamar is clueless on all things transgender.

Previously, Lord Jamar has attracted media attention with supposedly homophobic songs and statements which he denies they were, but I’d say at this point, he out of denials and the trans/homophobic label is permanently affixed.

  1. I’ve never heard of this bigoted none-entity, and almost refrained from reposting it to spare others from losing that luxury 🙂

  2. Since WHEN does a rapper show talent???

  3. Lord Jamar, this man is a perfect example of the axiom: …………………………………………………….
    ………………………………………………………….Please Engage Brain Before Opening Mouth…………..
    Ignorance comes in all Variations of Mankind, and as Aristophanes said 2300 years ago………….
    …………..Stupid is Forever.

  4. Who???? Never heard of this clown, and no need to give him one inch of pub. Let him fade into “Black”

  5. that guy is a homophobic, transphobic, racist, horrible individual……………. [deleted] him!

  6. I just read this, I have had my own doubts about Caitlyn, but I agree that we need to honor the fact that other voices are present on her “reality” television, and she reaches a wide audience, so bravo. I am glad you posted this since I think that this rapper is saying what many others are thinking. I hope it’s not a majority thinking this, though gender roles are so rigid to this day, for so many in our country (USA).
