THANK YOU, FRANK OCEAN! This guy is brave for continuing to use his platform to speak out on a very controversial issue in Hip Hop (or the urban world in general). I’ve said countless times that African-Americans seem like the last people to accept the LGBT community. What frustrates me is the fact that we get upset when others treat us differently because of the color of our skin, but are quick to shun others out based upon who we love.
