Watch: Rapper claims Caitlyn Jenner is racist for transitioning

Joe Williams July 15, 2015

A hip hop star from America has launched an attack on the transgender community and Caitlyn Jenner, advising that she should ‘stick to what you were made to be’.

Lil Scrappy made the comments during an appearance on Truth TV, where he complained about both Jenner and the support she has received since coming out as transgender – claiming her transition was a “racist situation”.

In the video, he argues that if Jenner had been a black, she would not have gotten the same kind of overwhelming acceptance the star has received.

“No black man can stand up and say, ‘You know, my whole life I felt like a woman, but I was just holding it down for my kids and my bitch,'” he said.

He also said that if a black person did “say that shit” they’d “get assassinated — by us.”

“We don’t play that shit. Black folk don’t play that shit.”

It is safe to assume Mr Scrappy has yet to hear of global sensation and transgender activist, OITNB star Laverne Cox.

Other famous transgender black women include MMA champion Fallon Fox, world-renowned violinist Tona Brown, or award-winning writer, activist, lecturer and speaker Monica Roberts.

According to Lil Scrappy’s questionable logic, women are becoming more powerful in the world, so therefore men now want to become women.

“I love my dick… I do not want to be a woman.

“For the world of young kids, for the world of young little boys, stick to what you were made to be. If you got a penis, be a penis,” he said, obviously keen to set an example by taking his own advice.

Earlier this week, an outspoken American evangelical Christian, Franklin Graham, also criticised Jenner, saying he finds the recent recognition she has received as “hard to swallow”.

He also said that Jenner is a “very confused” person and that proclaiming her as a “hero” to the world is wrong.
