Tameka Foster hit up the Tom Joyner show this morning to chat with National TV and radio journalist Jacque Reid to clear up the rumors that she was calling Usher Gay on Twitter.
After posting the above tweet a heated debate between gays and Raymond sparked on twitter. In the interview Tameka reacts to the negativity and describes what she really meant when she suggested that men on the down low or those living secretly homosexual lifestyles should be branded and exposed for who they really are. Her choice of revelatory methods? A simple sign that tells women – especially black women who they might really be dealing with underneath the street clothes, fancy cars and masculine swag.
She also tells a compelling story about a friend who found out the hard way….
LISTEN TO THE AUDIO
I found this interview interesting mainly because of the story she told about her friend not being able to get pregnant and finding out her husband of 10 years had full blown AIDS. Although many of us often hear about the downlow problem with brothers, mainly in the Atlanta area we are not affected by it and can barely imagine such a thing happening to us.. It’s crazy that it is already difficult to find a black man that is attractive and will treat you well then you later find out that Prince charming may actually be someone’s Princess charming behind your back.
Homosexuality is very frowned upon in the African American community. But I think the fact that these men are having UNPROTECTED gay sex needs to be reiterated. Their behaviour is just as irresponsible as that of a heterosexual male who cheats on his woman and fails to use condoms.
With so many stories of AIDS and HIV going around you would think these undercover men would at the least feel responsible and understand that they have a person’s trust and life up under them and to at least protect themselves in order to protect their life mate. But the thing is these men don’t really care too much for their mate at home, I doubt most of them are even attracted to the woman they have at home. They just married her for image sake.
I guess it’s about time that black women start hiring a private detective to follow a man that may seem to good to be true.. SMH
