    More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.

    And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?

    Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right. 

    Yup. A lot of people like to ignore all the good things he does simply because he is part of the privileged. Never mind that he flat out acknowledges this in Same Love. (“I may not be the same, but that’s not important.”)

    BLESS YOUR SOULS. 

    BLESS YOUR FUCKING SOULS. 

    I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THAT FUCKING A LOT OF TUMBLR HATES MACKLEMORE. 

    BECAUSE HONESTLY, HE WAS EVERYTHING THEY WERE COMPLAINING WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T AND NOW THAT THEY GOT A FUCKING ROLEMODEL THEY SUDDENLY COMPLAIN?????? BECAUSE HE’S WHITE????? 

    Macklemore grew up privileged, yes, but he understands the inequality and the disturbing gap between rich and poor. He has a song called White Privilege: 

    "Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been to
    To counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been through
    If I think I understand just because I flow too
    That means I’m not keeping it true, nope.”

    ALSO

    "But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars"

    AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY???

    "I grew up on Capitol Hill,
    With two parents and two cars.
    They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.
    My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.
    Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.
    But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.
    I go to school, which was diverse.
    But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.
    It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing up
    I didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.
    And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.
    And then my city’s divided,
    From neighborhood to neighborhood
    We’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.
    The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.
    As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.
    And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed”


    OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD.

    HOW ABOUT A WAKE??? 

    "Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’
    Fighting for our freedom that my people stole
    Don’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortable
    But you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radio
    Why you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globe
    Don’t get involved with the causes in mind
    White privilege, white guilt, at the same damn time
    So we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nine
    Celebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.”

    Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy. 

    Macklemore hate is proof that Tumblr’s brand of militant social justice is just made up of a bunch of people with either a victimization fetish and/or a hateful, angry heart seeking acceptable targets, and they then proceed to poison the people that really just want to do good, ultimately mangling a good cause beyond recognition.

    And 99% of people who complain about the first lyric of “Same Love” have never actually listened beyond that. Somebody tells them “The song starts with ‘when i was in the third grade i thought that i was gay’” and they start clutching their pearls because surely the whole song is just some straight dude making lgbtqa rights all about him and how he thinks because he thought he was gay when he was eight he knows all about it. And maybe it’s not the best way to word the beginning of the song, BUT IF YOU ACTUALLY LISTEN OR READ BEYOND THAT it turns out it’s a segue into talking about ridiculous stereotypes and preconceived ideas about sexuality and questioning why someone would think it was a bad idea to be gay in the first place. And then it goes on to discuss the homophobia inherent in the music genre he’s a part of and calling his peers out on slurs and derogatory language and hypocrisy in religion, and it beautifully features Mary fucking Lambert, and goddammit I had trouble driving home when I first heard it in the car because I was fucking crying.

    Macklemore is a privileged individual who consistently and vocally acknowledges his privileges and strives to use it to do legitimate good, which is everything Tumblr claims it wants, but as soon as he starts, they scream for him to shut up. Because their need to rage and scream and hate and wallow in willful ignorance is more important to them than seeing actual change take place anywhere in the world.

    so glad i came across this post. you have to remember that tumblr :so called “activists” like to comment on anything that seems potentially bad, even if that means over-shadowing great points and progress that a lot of people, both gay and straight have wished for.

    God bless.

    This makes me so happy man

    I think the “Macklemore Hate” this post is talking about refers more to the fact that a straight white guy is being heralded as hip hop’s (an undeniably black art) gay rights champion when there are already a slew of gay, black rappers doing the same thing and getting zero recognition.  It’s very sweet of him to do what he’s doing, but he’s over shadowing a lot of preexisting art that deserves representation and doing nothing to elevate that art.  Like, apologizing to Kendrick Lamar at the Grammy’s is not going to cleanse decades of systematic racism and caucasian domination of American culture.  I think the fault here is more at our country’s reaction to people like Macklemore  than the actual existence of his art.   I don’t think a straight white guy should be prohibited from rapping about gay rights and addiction, but considering our country’s history of ignoring and oppressing the people Macklemore is building his fame on, I think people have every right to be frustrated.  

    I realize everything you are saying. But shouldn’t the hate be directed at society for putting him up on a pedestal? He never claimed to be the exclusive progressive rapper. Also the whole apologizing to Kendrick Lamar thing was because everybody knew, even him, that he shouldn’t have won the Grammy, it should have gone to Good Kid Mad City, instead it won because Tweens love catchy beats and don’t actually want to hear something deep and nuanced.
    I really only reblogged this because it’s nice to see someone defending someone on Tumblr rather than uniformed attacks.
