Macklemore made a song about White Privilege
I'm surprised this didn't make more of a stink considering he made a whoooole bunch other songs about equality and then did this. It was popular among hardcore sjw circles on tumblr back in 2013-ish? Not sure.
And Macklemore continues to sum up why I hate him
>make song about accepting gays
>during the height of same sex couple's mainstream acceptance
>make song about mah white privilege
>during the height of mah white privileges mainstream acceptance
It's not even the theme of the song that bugs me (I mean it does, but it's not the main thing), it's all his dumb fans going "yeah, he's the first dude to spit the truth! Going against the mainstream". Nigga please, all Macklemore does is ride on the coattails of whichever movement is already in the height of acceptance in the mainstream while pretending he's standing up for something. This shit is as true now as it was during Thrift Shop.
>make some about how unique you are for going shopping at Goodwill
>during a time that every hipster under the sun is already doing the same fucking thing
mack has been dismantling white privilege since the thrift shop days. he's the real deal.
in fact, here he is fessing up to kendrick lamar PERSONALLY that GKMC was a better album than the heist.
kind of interesting of him to write about cultural appropriation for obvious reasons
it feels kind of calculated to me though. like he made all this money off of making shitty white people rap, and now he makes an album about how guilty he feels to get himself off the hook.
fuck that guy 4chan has nothing to do with black culture
s m h, f a m, time to jerk off to blacked videos my niggers, ayo hype as fuck, that shit is godlike, I like eminem and kendrick, 50 cent is a funny guy, gonna pirate before I buy, fuck the establishment, I wanna fucc that girl, nice tits big ass
>Mackelmore calling out Iggy Azalea, Elvis and Miley for exploiting the "black culture"
Is this the most blatant example of the pat caaling the kettle back?
lol no it's not. like the other anon said it's the most self-serving bullshit ever.
"HEY EVERYONE LOOK HOW GUILTY I AM OVER WINNING THIS TROPHY OVER THIS BLACK MAN! IM A GOOD HUMAN BEING THIS SCREENSHOT PROVES IT!!!!"
It's kind of hypocrite though, considering he continually talks about black culture appropriation in the song and even namedrops a few artists, yet he acts like a nigger, even though he's white as a sheet.
Pathetic attempt to stay relevant and show black people how full of white guilt he is.
Mackelmore is the kind of wigger that will tell you that we should atone for the sins of our white ancestors and yet support Muslims on their #NotAllMuslims hashtag
>Why should white people today be guily for something they never did that their ancestors did?
the same reason you "people" demand that american muslims apologize whenever a muslim in the middle east or europe does something you don't like, the same reason you "people" hold all blacks accountable whenever some black murders an angelic white lady, the same reason whites held latinos responsible for Kathryn Steinle's death.
Alright then, starting today if you're a Muslim I'll be helding YOU accountable for all the Islam-related attack, and if you're Black, I'll held you accountable by the slavery of their own kin in the past as well as all the shooting, rapes and crimes that happen today by black people, and so on for the rest of the races.
If you're ok with that, feel free to held me accountable for all the school shooting you want
All this guy does is look at a social movement and write a song about it from the, right side of history, point of view. It gets super fucking popular and then he makes millions off of it.
Seems like this kind of stuff is a lot easier to do when you're white, though. He's not helping out any sort of movement. The black community isn't going to be welcome him with open arms because he wrote a song about how he feels bad because he's white.
sure, other groups are looked at as a monolith or some kind of hive-mind so why shouldn't whites be viewed that way? This silly thing where everyone else is a group but whites are just individuals is fucking retarded, you can pretend you dont see it but it happens/ I'm all for individualism but only when all groups are treated as individuals.
If you want another example of this go to any video of non-whites doing something whites dont like or committing a crime, the comment section will be full of racist white hurling racial slurs and shit talking other groups but when you get to a video of a white person doing something sickening any person that leaves a racist comment about whites is met with 'WOW, WHAT DOES RACE HAVE TO DO WITH THIS!?', DONT YOU KNOW YOU'RE DIVIDING US', 'WOW, SO ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF THIS ONE PERSON, FUCK YOU YOU ANTI-WHITE BIGOT'.
>couldn't just send the text to Kendrick and be done with it
>had to humblebrag about it
disgusting attention whore
>Being racist against anyone does get your shit fucked
Except whites, of course
i don't think any groups should be viewed as a monolith that's the whole point i'm trying to make. why are you trying to fight fire with fire? it's all terrible.
i'm starting by trying to not lump all blacks, muslims, etc, together, why can't you extend me the same? because other white people lump them together? if everyone keeps sticking to their xenophobic guns nothing is going to change. lead by example.
if he really felt this way he wouldn't have submitted his award in the first place. he's an independent musician, no label was pushing him to submit.
you submitted your shitty album, and it won. just take the win
The girls probably went to jail so I don't know what you're whining about.
If this was in America there'd be 8 SWAT teams and a ton of dead bodies and people like you would celebrate it.
Also congrats on him enjoying his 56 days of anal stimulation.
The "danger" element of black people is the "thug culture". In general I see very few people fighting against that. If you don't want to be seen as a hivemind, stand up for yourself, just like more peaceful muslims make a point to separate themselves from ISIS
Basically you are trying to fight with fire. Have fun with that, but don't expect anything positive
>The girls probably went to jail so I don't know what you're whining about.
Did you even bother to read it you cuck?
>anything and everything people do is criminal
Not according to the law. In fact, most things are legal. But ganging up on a woman and beating her to the ground certainly is not one of them.
listen to the speech that guy gives at 6:30
He literally swiped that from a shitty Tumblr comic
thank Christ he only has 40k views after 12 hours, I would be horrified if this blew up and songs about white people being evil started playing on the radio
amazing times we are living in where mainstream music is about getting a group of people to hate their race, facilitated through a massive mob mentality and peer pressure. Especially when the fanbase thinks they are
edgy or part of a counterculture for adhering to these beliefs, when they are actually as mainstream and politically correct as can be
Truly, the feel good times of racial blindness are coming to a close. We are in an existential battle for the future of our children and our land. Self-hating whites like Macklemore are our greatest and only major weakness.
why would anyone rather be black than white
>"the final song on the album, "white guilt", is a 12 minute mock interview between macklemore and his hero kendrick lamar, where macklemore apologizes profusely to clips of kendrick saying "it's okay, i forgive you whitey"."
wow this album is going to change the game
Oh okay I was about to shoot myself in the foot.
Just say horseshoe theory.
the biggest problem with this song is that it's a shitty song. politics aside it is overlong, overdramatic, and has no sense of structure. I've heard free jazz and noise albums with a better sense of structure than this song.
>why are you trying to fight fire with fire? it's all terrible.
ah yes the classic white line of 'HEY! why are you doing to me what I do to you!? that's not right, if you want me to stop doing what I'm doing to you then you need to be the bigger man and stop doing to me what i'm doing to you!
this gets us nowhere, but it does benefit whites, how, well other groups and whites will continue to view whites as individuals while whites continue to view everyone else as a collective.
Now what does fighting fire with fire do? Fighting fire with fire levels the playing field, all members of a group are seen as a hivemind.
>just like more peaceful muslims make a point to separate themselves from ISIS
Do you know WHY they do that? So white faggots like you dont show up at their doorstep ready to kill them because you think all muslims are the borg and when a muslim somewhere does something all muslims are guilty. They do it for their own safety because they know how you fucking people are. I don't know how old you are but do you remember all of the muslims(and sometimes non-muslims that WHITES mistook for being muslims) that were attacked after 9/11? "Immediately after the 9/11 attacks, anti-Muslim hate violence skyrocketed some 1,600%."
>In general I see very few people fighting against that
maybe you dont see it because you pay no attention to it, like when whites say 'why dont niggers protest black on black crime'.
>Have fun with that
This was the most profitable artist from 2000-2010
whatever, be a petty douche to every white person you meet in an attempt to 'level le playing field'.
it would be nice in principle if you could target those who are actually terrible and prejudiced to you and not those who are being decent but hey it's a free country.
>how you fucking people are
Man for someone talking about generalizations, you sure do love making them. And that's basically the entire core of your argument: making sweeping generalizations and then complaining about them.
Fighting fire with fire unlike what you're saying is a "everybody loses" tactic. Totally SJW-ish in concept and execution.
And yes most black people DON'T try to go against the grain. Ghetto culture is still widely idolized in USA. And Ferguson Riots only add fuel to the fire. Clearly those thugs didn't learn from the actual decent protesters that didn't take the chance to steal shit.
I don't even know what point you are even making anymore? Generalizations are bad for all races except the white? Promoting generalizations? What?
i guess you got tired of actually coming up with responses. it's okay, it's getting late. probably past your bed time.
well it was fun talking to you, hope you get over this stupid shit. learn how to make friends who are a different race from you some day.
Ghetto culture goes beyond "poor and black". Ghetto culture in a more broad term also means being a thug that pops cap in asses, fucks a lot of big booty bitches and whatever other shit.
It's very clearly idolized in America, except by people like Lil Wayne that make a point to make an ostentation of material wealth and such.
And yes a lot of black people actively support the thug life. There are quite a few stories all over the internet of black people that were excluded for not buyiong the thug life and studying to make a better living.
The difference is that only about 5% of white people living today have ancestry in slavery while 52% of Muslims agree with sharia law and violence against western culture
I find it interesting as Sharia could be interpreted in a multitude of ways.
Even in my church the pastor would say contradictory things.
I wish divorce would be an option if someone were to commit adultery.
Death for leaving Islam would not be preferable whatsoever either.
Even excommunication sounds better.
I have them somewhere but I believe they're not as bad as these stats. The issue isn't the islam practices in western cultures. Your neighbors and colleagues if they are Islamic, are very much following a reformed version of it
The problem isn't "all Muslims" it's fundamental, traditional Islam that's incompatible with western civilization and needs to be stopped.
Islam is still in the dark ages
I think I'd rather be a poor white than a poor black, people ignore you for the most part.
In the East it sure as hell is.
The same could be said for Westboro Baptist Church and y'all wouldn't be yelling
>Holy shid dae Christians are in the dark ages.
It'll grow up eventually.
Because the economic advantages that white people see today are caused by the injustices whites enacted upon blacks years ago.
If you want to end the guilt, you could give back all the money you own as a result of your ancestors oppressing them.
There is a privilege separating the White from the Black, it's a historical and it is a thing, and a mostly American thing. I don't think 'privilege' is a healthy term to use though because all it does is make some Whites feel bad about who they are, and other Whites become angrier still at minorities as they believe the system is turning against them.
I'm just an idealist so take what I say with a pinch of salt, but somehow the message should be shown to as many as possible, that on racial grounds, no lives matter more than any other within a society. It takes a certain degree of maturity to not quickly associate certain citizens with financial problem or such like with a group of people who share characteristics one can identify by just looking at them. That's all that needs to change really. Nothing too radical, just acknowledging the fact that associating an individual who has or is causing problems with a stereotype does not deal with a problem, it just leads to either conflict or tension which leads to conflict
Most Islams countries actually use a very distorted version of the Sharia Law. For example in the case sometimes wants to leave Islam, there is no punishment: the person made his decision and must be left alone.
Death penalty only applies if the person becomes a traitor and starts working against Muslims. Still very extreme, but the point that comes across is that almost every single Middle East country out there employs a barbaric bloodier version of the Sharia Law
>If you want to end the guilt, you could give back all the money you own as a result of your ancestors oppressing them.
nah you dont have to do that, but there should be some form of compensation. But you cant really give blacks compensation because the white majority believes that the past has no effects on the present when it comes to blacks and because it isn't fair to them(whites(they said something similar about AA when it was enacted in the 60s))
Exactly, my suggestion at the end is extreme but the absurd idea that we should feel no guilt for what our ancestors did is extremely (or willfully ignorant) of the facts that what happens in the past affects the present.
Get it everyone.
What happened in the past affects the present.
It isn't that hard.
A question I have is: How far does affirmative action have to go before eliminating privileged?
Has it already done its job?
In my opinion affirmative action through race is a stupid and broad brushed way to do it; blacks from wealthy families get favored over whites from broken families. That is not fair. Instead affirmative action should be based on: how wealthy is your family? did your parents go to university? Is said university of good quality? What area do you live in? What school did you go to?
Strong affirmative action based on these questions would enable impoverished blacks to get a good chance in life and impoverished whites too. The fact is, the pay gap and other inequalities is barely due to racism, it's mainly to do with the poverty trap.
>Mfw autists say "muh pure Ayran blood" which means "my pure Iranian blood".
I'd want to be the white person but not because of privilege I just don't want to be a nigger.
Maybe if I was a wigger c u c k who listened to Kendrick Lamar I'd want to be black.
>Why the fuck are you even here?
Like most of 4chan, /mu/ is a proud far right board and we always have been. We also appreciate white dadrock and prefer to discuss white music.
Controversial opinion time.
I believe white privilege exists, but only in a white country where the majority of the people are white, there's also black privilege in black countries, Asian privilege in Asian countries, etc. Basically a country's largest ethnicity has privilege, as long as the country has no minority rule. It's just natural
You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!
Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
An immature artist who makes immature music is politically an immature leftist.
No surprises here.
>Bowie was quoted in Stockholm as saying that "Britain could benefit from a Fascist leader", and was detained by customs on the Russian/Polish border for possessing Nazi paraphernalia.
Anon, I share your view on affirmative action 100%.
In Texas, being in the top 10% of your high school class got your automatic admission into certain state colleges. This is another form of affirmative action that I think is pretty good - LaDyrell from the shitty high school on the east side who studied his ass off isn't nearly as well off as Sarah whose mom bought her adderall and has an army of tutors waiting for her at home but they both get the same access to upper level universities as a result of hard work.
However, that system is exploited by parents who will send their special private school snowflakes to the shitty schools so they can get valedictorian without even making an effort.
But I think you have the right idea.
Not music, but thanks for letting me vent, /mu/
>However, that system is exploited by parents who will send their special private school snowflakes to the shitty schools so they can get valedictorian without even making an effort.
It's so unfair that some people have more money than others
