3 Main Reasons Why Macklemore’s Jewish Costume was Offensive

May 19, 2014

After writing my previous blog on Macklemore’s recent Hebrew problems, I think I need to focus another blog on why what Macklemore did was dead wrong.

1. He dressed as a stereotypical Jew.  The image of the prominent nose is one of the worst stereotypical images aimed at Jews.

2. Like the meme says. his song was about being cheap.  Being cheap is a stereotype that has haunted Jews far too long.

3. He performed this on Shabbat.   I learned this from my Jewish friends. (Yours truly is African-American). Shabbat is the Jewish day of rest. Also, it happens on the seventh day of the week. On the Jewish calendar, the seventh day is a Friday, the same night Macklemore performed his caricature.

I don’t think he was aware of the Friday significance. Yet, I am not going to believe he wasn’t aware how controversial his act would be.

Then, again, for all I know, Mr. Ben Haggerty might be Jewish himself.

Macklemore (Rap Haters’ Hero) Accused of Anti-Semitism

May 19, 2014

Just like I suspected, rapper Macklemore’s tolerance image was a fraud.  When it comes to anti-homophobia songs like “Same Love”, I remember pretentious dudes reciting poetry like that  at open-mics.  Back then, I suspected it was all a play for some pussy. because silly-assed, young ladies that didn’t know any better fell for it. I suspected almost the same thing about “Same Love”, gullible people falling for bullshit.

Recently, he performed “Thrift Shop” dressed as a stereotypical Jew.

I’m African-American, but I definitely know what’s wrong this scenario.  “Thrift Shop” is about being cheap. Jews are stereotyped as being cheap and greedy bastards.

Next photo shows why Macklemore’s image was so wrong.  Germans used to show this image of Jews, the same thing Macklemore dressed as.

I’m not surprised. In a previous blog, I mentioned concerns about Macklemore wearing gold teeth and a gold necklace on the cover of Source magazine.

I thought this reminiscent of the black face days, when white actors painted their faces black as they portrayed African-Americans.

After this fraud received so many Grammys, I am so glad this happened.  No, I’m not anti-Semitic.  Yet, I’ve told many unfunny jokes in the past.  Still, this goes beyond just bad jokes.  The image Macklemore used was created by people who owned a serious hatred against Jews, an image they used as they killed Jews.

Before this incident happened, rap haters praised Macklemore as God!  The best rapper out there!  Because Eminem is past forty, I suspected some folks were searching for another white rapper to over-hype.  Observe a Facebook conservation I witnessed.

Macklemore may not talk about bitches and drank, but he definitely is going down as an anti-Semite.

 

7 Things I Learned from My Three Year Old Blog

May 16, 2014

As of this month, The DJ Stone Crazy Spot is three years old.

These are seven things I learned from blogging on WordPress.com.

1. You don’t have to write 1500 word blogs. I really don’t know how that started. Yet, some of my more popular blogs definitely did not have 1500 words. Some had even less than 300 words. Some blogs contained a few words and a kick-ass meme I found on Facebook.

2. Booty pics attract more traffic than the written word. During the blogs first few months, Google sent more traffic my way because of booty pics. As the blogs main focus was music and laptop DJing, booty pics still brought the most traffic. To this day, it still does. Instead of reading about why a song sucks, many viewers prefer looking for big booty MILFs or big ass white girls. Currently, it’s Miley Cyrus pussy shots and Angela Basset’s booty.

3. Calling someone out in your blog does more psychological damage than you realize. Sometimes, after my blogs aims something nasty at someone, I  receive epic comments taking personal shots at me and my DJ skills. One coward decided to send me an e-mail taking potshots at me. After unfriending me on Facebook, another person posted my blog about her on Facebook, as she called me a loser DJ.

Why all this overreacting? The blog struck a raw nerve bordering on truth. If it wasn’t true, why write epic comments and aim nasty shots at me and DJ skills? In my lifetime, guilty folks are the only ones I know who behave this way.

4. You’re more likely to get pimp-slapped by a 300 pound transvestite versus getting sued for using copyrighted photos. I’m not condoning using copyrighted material. Still, as far as getting sued for doing it? That’s highly unlikely. First, you might receive a request to either take the photo down or give the photographer credit. Second, the photographer might tell your web host. Third, if you’re small fry, they know you don’t have any freakin’ money to sue for. For the record, I’m not a lawyer. Despite all this, you still might get sued for using a copyrighted pic. Still, that rarely happens to small fry bloggers.

5. Readers like lists. Yep, the blog experts had it right. Creating list blogs attract traffic. Still make sure it’s a subject folks will want to read. If folks no longer care about Jay-Z’s conflict with his sister-in-law, don’t you still write ten reasons why Jay-Z should have smacked her. If it’s a subject folks don’t care about, don’t go writing a list about it.

6. Current trends attracts plenty traffic. When Justin Bieber was arrested, I dug up memes making fun of his arrest. The blog attracted plenty of attention. When some idiots used Martin Luther King Jr, in twerking flyers, that blog not only gained a lot attention, a more popular website linked to it. The reason I always post pics of Miley Cyrus is because I know folks will come looking for them, especially if it’s something she did recently.

7. Making fun of white people attracts traffic. (Controversy attracts traffic.) I once noticed people searching my blogs wanting to know what music to play for white people. I knew the subject was controversial. That’s why I wrote it. I wrote it over a year ago. To this day, that blog still attracts traffic.

After three years on this blog, that’s what I learned.

A Nasty Meme About Madonna’s Age

May 1, 2014

I found this mean-spirited beauty on Facebook, a nasty mean concerning Madonna’s age. CBGB OMFUG posted it.  For the record, I have no problem with the Material Girl’s age.
