Reggie Rockson has been a pillar in the music industry and a much-respected community head. Sharing his views on family units and the LGBT community, the rap icon revealed that hate is not the way to go.
For Reggie Rockstone, children should be trained to respect all persons. He also talks about how important it is to instil the values of love and respect in children as they are initiated into a world made up of all kinds of people.
“Charity begins at home. It will all begin with every family unit set up. And so how you train your children… when they go into the world, they will have a certain mindset.
“So when you talk about LGBT, I just know that my children are not hating them. When I was growing up, I didn’t know about it, so I don’t care if it was fat, short or whatever. Whatever you are, I will treat you with respect. Just like I would be expected to be treated with respect.”
Reggie iterated the usefulness of these values in children, which will help them relate with others in the world. He also adds that his children are trained in a heterosexual environment because of how his home is structured (with a man and a woman).
“And this is how I’m training my children. No hate, no prejudice, non of the above. We are all God’s creation, so I don’t even have the power to be judgemental. So I know what I’m putting to my children. However, I’m not God. I dont have all the answers… but i will show the children what’s love, what’s out in the world and what they should prepare for,” he told Joy News via zoom call.
