When New York’s hip hop radio station HOT 97 invited listeners to call in “if anyone in NYC is disappointed” by President Barack Obama’s surprise announcement in support of same-sex marriage, they got an earful.
“I’m totally against that same-sex marriage, man,” offered 27-year-old Anthony, according to Fox News.
“You got the younger generation in today’s society growing up. I mean if you have a kid would you want your kid, if he was a boy, would you want him marrying another guy? Or if you had a daughter would you want your daughter marrying another girl? The emotions, the feelings? I'm totally against it. I mean I'm born and raised in New York. My parents are from Guyana. That would never go in Guyana.”
Another caller, Jennifer, insisted that she will not vote for Obama in the general election based on his statement regarding same-sex marriage. “Definitely not,” she said.
She said Obama’s shift in attitude appeared to be politically motivated. “I'm not going to vote for Obama because I feel like it was all like a little he knew he was losing votes and he needed to get people's attention,” she said. “And that's what he did. Why did he want to do this now?”
