He Said What? So Many Black Women At The Aids Event I Thought I Was At The Welfare Office
He Said What? So Many Black  Women At The Aids Event I Thought I Was At The Welfare Office

 

The famous Lee Diniels, director of the new number one box office smash movie "The Butler" said these not so hi ranking words in an interview with American television host Larry King.

 

King asked the infamous director about the statement he made 2 years ago about gay people being 3rd class citizens, when asked what he meant about this Daniels said. “ when I was doing a research for precious (the movie he directed), I walked into an aids gay men crisis centre in New York  you know doing research about aids,  in new York city studying aids HIV/AIDS and I expected to see nothing but a room full of gay men but there were nothing but women in there, and the reason women are there black women with kids, I thought I had walked into a so called welfare office but they service black women with AIDS because black gay men can’t come out and the reason they can’t come out why, because you simply, you can’t do it because your family says it, your church says it, your friends say it, your work says it. So living in this DL thing and your infecting black women, and so it’s killing us and I think because the black culture and Hispanic culture has a thing about gay culture.

Interestingly Lee Daniels also speaks about the time he knew he was gay, he says it was a Sunday when his dad and cop friends were playing card games and he walked down the steer wearing his mama’s black palms and his dad beat him like he stole something but he didn’t stop because the next Sunday ‘I walked down wearing blue heels with her clutch this time”.

Watch the Lee embracing the stereotype here, on that note; I won’t be watching the Butler or any of his projects.

I strongly feel Daniels could have minced his words or found another way to get his point across, the “so many black women and kids I thought I was in a welfare centre” was uncalled for and a stupid stereotype, welfare doesn’t have colour people from ever race groups receive welfare help, but clearly Mr. Daniels chooses to see only black in a welfare office filled with different races.
