Jay-Z was asked by CNN about what he thought about President Obama’s recent endorsement of gay marriage. He’s what he had to say:
“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple…I think it’s the right thing to do, so whether it costs him votes or not - again, it’s not about votes. It’s about people. It’s the right thing to do as a human being.”
