  1. Caliban: Good job completely ignoring the article that I posted. Also, yes, I am gonna be that guy, but your privilege is showing if you don't see how easily white rappers are accepted into the mainstream. You are denying the reality of white privilege.

    There is an entire group of queer black rappers and they NEVER broke into the mainstream until from Frank Ocean, who continues to be the only one.

  2. "There is an entire group of queer black rappers and they NEVER broke into the mainstream until from Frank Ocean, who continues to be the only one."

    Should read "until Frank Ocean".

    Macklemore is riding on his white privilege all the way to the bank and has never once formally promoted and backed an LGBT black rapper, all the while he continues to demonize hip hop culture as a complete outsider (because he is white), saying how much it needs to "change" and never really bringing any change at all and instead maintaining the status quo of rich white people benefiting from others.
