Queer Eye's Karamo Brown Is Pointing Out Racism in the LGBT Community

Karamo Brown, the culture expert on Netflix‘s Queer Eye, is calling out racism in the LGBTQ+ community.

“There’s a lot of racism that exists in the LGBT community,” the 39-year-old explained. “The things I’ve seen outside (in society) I’ve only seen perpetuated in the LGBT community.”

“Yeah, you might have had a struggle because you’re gay, but white privilege still exists.”

He then pointed to when Grindr removed the ethnicity filter to combat racism.

“White gay men were like ‘this is wrong, I should have the right to be like I don’t want blacks, I don’t want Asians,’” Karamo continued. “If you inherently don’t understand why that is wrong, as a gay person … then you need to check yourself.”

“Growing up as a black man in America with immigrant parents raising two black sons, this is a constant conversation that I’ve been having,” Karamo said. “These are constant things that I’ve seen with my friends and family members being harassed by police, being brutalized by police.”
