The Game AIDS Controversy

The Game says AIDS is spread by closeted gay men who are sleeping with women.

The Game

The Game stepped back into 1983 when he claimed in a television interview that AIDS is spread by closeted gay men having sex with women.

In a sit-down with VLAD TV The Game said that there are "several rappers" in the closet and they are spreading AIDS to unsuspecting women.

"The number one issue with that is you could be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die," The Game said, "and that [expletive] spreads because that girl you might be fooling might leave you and go find another dude who ain't gay and give him the disease."

"So that in the closet [expletive] is real scary," he said.

In reality, the issue isn't who you sleep with, but whether or not you use a condom when you have sex with your partner -- gay or straight. You know, that little fact that all American kids who go to public schools learn in health class in grade school.

The Game says he is particularly at risk because he is convinced "several rappers" are in the closet, and they apparently all sleep with the same women.

"…Not being just full-out gay, just pretending he loves girls and lives the rap lifestyle, but really he's a man fan," The Game described the hip hop down-low lifestyle. "There's a lot of man fans out there in hip-hop. I see how you [expletive] be looking at [expletive] you're around too. They be looking at [expletive] crazy."

But lest you think The Game is a total homophobe, he wants you to know he doesn't hate all gays, just the ones on the DL. They "are the only type of gay people that I have a problem with."

Thanks for clearing that up. GLAAD will surely accept that excuse.

The Game is right about one thing - more-or-less biual (not strictly ) men on the down-low are indeed a major vector of HIV infection for African-American women. But just why are so many black men closeted about their uality? Could it be because they belong to the most anti ethnic group in America? Could it be that that homophobia is fed not only by churches, but by exaggerated ideas of masculinity reinforced by, yes, much of hip hop culture? And so it goes, around and around...
