    What is the role of a white person in the struggle of black people fighting injustice? That's the question posed by Ben Haggerty, better known as Macklemore, as he puzzles out his own role as a white artist in love with hip-hop on a new song called "White Privilege II."

    Macklemore & Ryan Lewis released the song as a free download overnight via a website that also offers links to "supporting black led organizations".


    Macklemore questions his own art and other white artists who take music with roots in the black community and find pop success with it.


    "You've exploited and stolen, the music, the moment
    The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toyed with
    The culture was never, yours to make better.
    You're Miley, you're Elvis, you're Iggy Azalea.
    Fake and so plastic, you heisted the magic.
    You've taken the drums, and the accent rapped in.
    Your brand of hip-hop, is facist and backwards
    That Grandmaster Flash should go slap you, you bastard.
    All the money you made off the watered down
    Pop bulls*** version of the culture pal"

    The term Cuck gets thrown about a lot lately, but in this case I think it's perfectly appropriate.

    To me the most important issue is why are rappers and white rappers more popular with the youth of today than rock and metal is. To me, illegal downloading and the death of the record industry has something to do with it. There's no money left to invest in a band so why not just invest in a pop singer or rapper

    Theres still lots of good new rock and meta l acts out there but its not heavily promoted and you have to search for it. People are too lazy to do that which is sad.

    SRV never felt like he had to justify copying Jimi's stuff. Probably because he had actual talent and didn't need to.

    Probably also because Jimi didn't run around with an angry affect 24/7

    All these people telling others how they should think and behave. Hiding behind their Twitter account.

    Fucking pompous narcissists.

    Look, a white guy copying a black guy. But he had talent and it was great. And didn't sing like an angry retard. No apologies needed.
