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.
