E! host Justin Sylvester Suggests Gays Are Hypocrites For Supporting BLM

“I have a weird relationship with the white gays,” Justin Sylvester said. “I feel like the white gays are late to the party.”

“The white gays are more impressed and more worried about likes than lives at this moment. And I say that because the white gays will wait for the other white gays in the community to start posting [about] Black Lives Matter, and then they will then follow suit. But it’ll be three to four weeks later,” he explained. “It’s crazy that having this conversation with my own friends who are white and gay was hard. It was tough. Because they’re like, ‘But I donated, and da, da, da, da, and I don’t feel comfortable posting.'”

“I’m like, ‘F**k that.’ When we were marching for Prop 8 to be done, when we were marching for the right to marry and the right to adopt children, we all remember how it felt to see those straight men and women post that rainbow flag in solidarity with us,” he added. “We felt seen. We felt heard. And we felt like we were finally making a change.”

“And the fact that you have decided that you don’t want to post something because it’s going to start an uncomfortable conversation, just remember how meaningful it was to have that little rainbow just right next to that guy’s name,” Sylvester went on. “And you knew that he was having hard conversations with his male co-workers and his cousins and his frat friends. But he was there for you. So be there for us now.”

While the fan-favorite E! personality admitted that it’s “better late than never,” he was still quick to point out that people in the LGBTQIA+ community are often “not that inclusive,” which he’s aware of first-hand as the “one Black friend in a group of friends.”

“We’ll take the numbers, you know? A lot of times, we, as gay men, live in this posh, perfect bubble. West Hollywood is amazing, [but,] when we look at our own surroundings, we’re not that inclusive,” he told ITK. “I may be one Black friend in a group of friends. As sad as that may be, it’s true.”

And, at the end of the day, Sylvester sees this cultural moment as an opportunity to “wake each other up” to the different realities of those who are part of marginalized communities.

“We need to step up. We need to step up. If not for George Floyd, we need to step up for Breonna Taylor, because Black women were always here for the gay fight. Black women were always here for the trans fight. They were down. They’ve always been down,” he said. “And I think there’s just some things that we really have to wake each other up on as gay brothers and sisters.”

Frankly, I’m sick and tired of black talking heads insisting that all whites have identical thoughts and values. When they purposely misrepresent white gay and lesbians, it’s all the more insulting.

by Anonymousreply 806/27/2020

He's wrong.

by Anonymousreply 906/27/2020

Yes, because GAY people are the problem her.

Honey, as with Occupy Wall Street and many other protests and movements in the past, the Rainbow Umbrella, Unfocused Priorities Coalition will implode under it's own weight.

Rather than going after everything under the sun, especially things that are a de minimus part of the whole problem is probably not the best uses of resources or time - and share of mind is a HUGE resource when it comes to protests and movements - just ask the Occupy folks what they accomplished after all their scattershot efforts.

by Anonymousreply 1006/27/2020

R10 I think the thing that was most ridiculous was that gay state senator getting beat up by protestors who were protesting and vandalizing because someone got ARRESTED. Not killed, just arrested. Shark jumping moment.

And I don't know what he's talking about with the "white gays" either. Every white gay's Twitter feed I follow spent two weeks posting Breonna Taylor memes or reposting statements from black activists, or comments from black activists about how "white people" sucked.

They've mostly stopped now, except for a few of them who jump from cause to cause because they like the attention.

by Anonymousreply 1106/27/2020

Let's not forget that blacks were OVERWHELMINGLY for the passage of Prop. 8, which called for the ABOLISHMENT of gay marriage in California. The blacks were most decidedly not our allies then, and I don't think things have changed all that much since then. There are social causes that I'll gladly be a part of, but I think I'll sit BLM out. I'm not against it, but I don't feel I owe the movement anything.

There are lots of talking heads saying crazy things. Of all races. Trump or his cronies hate gays and are dismantling the progress we’ve made over the last 2 decades. But not all white folks hate gays. There are black folks too who dislike us. But not all.

Here’s a 2019 poll that shows support for gay marriage is at:

White: 62%

Hispanics: 58%

Black: 51%

The gaps are not extreme and they are moving up.

I'm so glad this person can speak for all white gays.

Not even white gays have the omniscience to be able to do that.

So many idiots with big mouths in the world, and every kook of every color seems to think he has the wisdom to pronounce the old biases and has a right to do so.

by Anonymousreply 1706/27/2020

It's telling that he has no black friends.

by Anonymousreply 1806/27/2020

Can someone please call the police and arrest whoever is putting the gun to his head making him hang out with white gays all the time?

And let's please tar and feather all of his white friends who hang out with him because they only hang out with one black man.

STFU

He;s a dumbass which is why he's a host on E!. Wouldn't it be more hypocritical if white gays DIDN'T support them?

Do people remember that black people are less than 6% of the state of California? There is no way they could have been responsible for Prop 8 passing.

Fuck supporting anybody. Fascists! Going to my mountaintop. Bye, Felicia. Oh, and did I forget to say Fuck Off?

And he is right of course. White gays are among the most intolerant people on earth.

by Anonymousreply 2306/27/2020

R21 - it's not about whether they were responsible for Prop 8 - they didn't support it in vast numbers.

He's calling out white gays for not immediately supporting BLM - which is just based on his mouth alone.

I'd like to know what his white friends have to say about him dragging their asses through the mud. Something tells me there's one or two people that he's pissed at.

If white gays are backing BLM, good. BLM has only been around for about 6 years. Things don't happen overnight. If he's sad, oh well.

by Anonymousreply 2606/27/2020

R25 - receipts? Otherwise it's just his mouth. There's no proof - only his mealy mouth statements which could or could not be true.

And glad that he speaks for all black women as well - I'm sure they would love to know how supportive they've always been for trans rights.

He's a fool and reckless with his mouth.

Who is he dating, out of curiosity? I'm guessing white boyfriend.

by Anonymousreply 3306/28/2020

R33 He asked out olympic bottom Adam Rippon during a live interview. Which was weird because they are both bottoms.

by Anonymousreply 3406/28/2020

R33, he definitely only dates white guys. BLM to him until it's time to go the bedroom, and then it's the one-way train to White Town. His long-winded statement proves how conflicted he himself is.

[quote][R21] - it's not about whether [blacks] were responsible for Prop 8 - they didn't support it in vast numbers.

They DID support Prop. 8 in vast numbers. While they themselves of course weren't directly responsible for its passage, the blacks made it very, very clear that they were against gay marriage. Read the linked LA Times article at r12. Their views haven't changed all that much since that time. Support BLM? I don't think so. While I won't campaign against it, I will do nothing to help it along.

by Anonymousreply 3606/28/2020

Black Lives Matter only when a cop is involved. When blacks shoot other blacks, which happens every day...turns out blacks don't care.

Snow queens are hypocrits. They DEMAND that white men be open to fucking them and if not, they are disgusting intolerant racists! Snow queens blame the media and growing up surrounded by whites on their infatuation with getting fucked or dating white men but those same reasons do not apply to white men.

by Anonymousreply 4206/28/2020

I think he's right, to a certain extent, but also fails to recognize that gays are still targets themselves.

by Anonymousreply 4306/28/2020

If BLM wants gay support then they need to stop protesting gay events and apologies to gay people by the police while ignoring every fucking white nationalist movement in the country. Fucking pussy motherfuckers.

by Anonymousreply 4406/28/2020

"Do people remember that black people are less than 6% of the state of California?"

Precisely r21. Black people are actually a small share of the US population, which is why they are always going to be frustrated that their "representation" is not 50%. But they ever stop to think that their representation in the media, etc. is actually greater than their numbers.

It's also why this guy is often the only black gay amongst his group of friends.

by Anonymousreply 4506/28/2020

This pushback against white people, specifically white minorities, uniting for the BLM cause is hilarious to me. How is this supposed to help them? What does making the people who want to help you feel like enemies do for you and your cause?

It's like they won't be satisfied until BLM implodes is upon itself.

by Anonymousreply 4608/03/2020

[quote]When we were marching for Prop 8 to be done, when we were marching for the right to marry and the right to adopt children, we all remember how it felt

Except you are rewriting history. The reason prop 8 was passed to ban gay marriage was directly related to the Mormon church in Utah targeting black churches with their advertising in California... and it worked. The majority of black voters in California voted against the rights for gay marriage.

by Anonymousreply 4908/03/2020

I agree with him, but not in the same way. We both think white gays shouldn't be supporting black lives matter, but I think it's a matter of us being dumb to fight for the rights of people who'd love to see another AIDS-like plague wipe us off the face of the earth, rather than hypocrisy.
