Macklemore Knows The True Struggle
In what might be the first Salon article in song form, Macklemore released a new track called “White Privilege II” where he talks about the true struggle of wiping out the systematic racism that has kept black people and minorities down for centuries: what if a white guy wants to go to a protest and it gets, like, all awkward and stuff? People don’t even ask him how he’s doing when they’re gathered to mourn the death of an unarmed person who was murdered in the street. You think people would at least take the time to thank a white person for being there. So racist.
UPDATE: Iggy Azalea decided to tweet about it. It didn’t go well. It was unfortunate. Like these pictures.
