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.

Digital Music Sales Dropped: 5 Reasons Black People Shouldn’t Give A Shit

February 2, 2014

If you hadn’t heard, digital music sales dropped in 2013.  Here’s five reasons why black people and  black artists shouldn’t give a shit.

Borrowed from Sodahead.com

1.Sales for r&b/hip-hop didn’t go down.   As everyone else is crying the blues, “black” music still sells. EDM was the only other music which made money.

2.Not one black artist had a number one pop single in 2013.  Black artists reached Billboard’s Number One as guest stars on a white artist’s song.  Seeing that black artists couldn’t reach number one on the pop charts, why should black people feel sorry for “white” music?  Especially when “black” music still sold.

3. YouTube is rigged. Billboard now counts YouTube views as means for chart rankings.  Yet, some folks have been caught rigging views on YouTube.  Sure, you’ll hear about black artists.  Yet, as you can see, they still didn’t gain Number One on the Singles Pop Chart.  So, guess who else might have been cheating too. Not to say rigging is right.  Still, if the rig wasn’t in the black artist’s favor, why should black people care about “white” music?

4.The media makes a big deal out of white artists.  You see it all the time on the cover of music magazines.  Always some music magazine tells you about so-called, important, white musicians you should pay attention to.  Plus teen magazines are always spotlighting cute white teens over black ones.  After all that hype, people still aren’t buying “white” music. So, whose fault is that?  Black music lovers?

5.As a white rapper took home most of the 2014 Grammy rap awards, black artists still either won or were nominated in other genres.  The group Alabama Shakes was nominated for Best Rock Performance.   The group’s lead singer, Brittany Howard, is biracial. Her mom is white and her dad is black.  Gary Clark Jr. was nominated for Best Rock Song.  Darius Rucker won Best Country Solo Performance.   As you can see, black artists still gain recognition, even in genres traditionally seen as white.

Something worth knowing about illegal downloads: Instead of blaming shitty music for sales dropping, music labels are blaming illegal downloads and streaming music. If illegal downloads and streaming music was such a problem, why didn’t sales go down for r&b/hip-hop?  Some racists might want to say that crowd don’t know how to steal music.  Well, if rock and pop fans want to pat themselves on the back for thieving knowledge, more power to them.

Another thing,it has been found AGAIN illegal downloading don’t hurt music sales. Actually, the ones who steal music also buy music. So, I guess hip-hop and EDM fans know more about music piracy than anyone else.

After my five reasons, why should black people and black artists worry about digital sales dropping?  As you can see, “black” music still benefits.   The music industry didn’t care about black consumers and black music.  They kept focusing on white entertainers and lost money big time. As Justin Timberlake is considered r&b, even he didn’t sell as many albums as he used to. In seventeen days, Beyonce’s album reached 1.3 million. In seventeen days, she already made it half-way near Timberlake’s 2.3 million albums.   So, why the fuck should “black”  music lovers and black people worry about other genres and white artists not selling?  If anything, some folks in the music industry need to be fired.
