To be able to witness something as beautiful as President Obama standing by marriage equality is incredible. To see someone like Jay-Z reaffirm this is just plain awesome.
“I have always thought of it as something that is still holding the country back,” he told CNN’s Poppy Harlow. “What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It is no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.”
“I think it was the right thing to do,” Jay-Z said. “So whether it cost him votes or not — it’s really not about votes, it’s about people. So whether it cost him votes or not, I think it was the right thing to do as a human being.”
